Pope John Paul II
Karol Józef Wojtyła P.B.U.H. (b.May 18th, 1920, d.April 2nd, 2005, resurrected April 4th, 2005) was a Polish man known in some circles as Pope John Paul II/2.0 and in other circles as J2P2 and Pope John Paul George Ringo. For nearly three decades, Wojtyła would wear silly hats, sit on ornate thrones, be protected by a group of Swiss guys in funny costumes, and ride in a fancy bulletproof car driven by someone more expendable. Sometimes he spoke, and when he did, billions of Jews, Muslims, Protestants, Hindus, Taoists, and Buddhists (not to mention atheists, agnostics, newborns, scientists, people on life support, dogs and Scientologists) listened.
But, a select group of Christians, a gnostic group called "The Catholics" paid rapt attention to each and every great word that escaped Wojtyła's lips, looking to him as a leader of sorts, even though he was not Italian. To them, he was "Il Papa" and for many of them the Pope, defining what a pope should be, look, and smell like. John Paul 2 contracted a case of Mad Boeing's Disease after kissing the tarmac at Jakarta Airport in 1991, and suffered many years of intermittent armflapping before finally succumbing. Though attempts to replace him after his passing in 2005 have met with some success, his memory lingers on in the halls of the Vatican, manifested primarily as a particularly mischievous poltergeist who answers to "His Holiness."
