Stephen Colbert “We all know that when a Cardinal is elevated to the Papacy he becomes the heir of Saint Peter, and therefore chooses a new name.  So, naturally, now that Benedict the 16th is leaving office, he has asked that we call him simply, Benedict the 16th.  OK, OK, that’s understandable.  He doesn’t want to get new towels and stuff.  But folks, that’s not all.  He says he’s still going to be Pope Emeritus, we’ll have to call him His Holiness, he’ll continue to wear the white robes, and live in the Vatican.  Folks, that means there’s going to be two Pontiffs.  We’re one Pope over the line, sweet Jesus, one Pope over the line.”
