Waiting for the Pope to emerge on the balcony in a white gown. Doubt he'll be singing “Don’t Cry for me Argentina.” A missed opportunity!

Pope Francis 1 is known as a frugal, humble, moderniser. Sounds just what the Catholic Church needs.

Don't call the new pope Francis - his name is Frank - If you call him Francis he's gonna kill you

If I were you, I would NOT call Oprah today. She's walking around her mansion..."oh great I went to Argentina for nothing"

Love that this man is known for his simplicity. The sign he has already given is his choice of name.
