4. My favorite bit by him is...

his story about visiting the Vatican and going into a gift shop. The proprietor was trying to sell him a menu from the Last Supper, but it was "too expensive". So, he bought a menu from the "Last Brunch". "He wanted 2,000 lire, but I Presbyterian him down to 1,000 lire."

6. As the longstanding gossip columnist for L'Osservatore,

he's the first one I thought of too for the real dirt on the Pope's resignation.

10. I think he came out of retirement for the Stewart/Colbert Rally

to Restore Sanity and/or Fear in D.C.. He gave the benediction.

8. Wow

He was the first person who came to mind when I heard about the Pope stepping down. Weird. Al Franken did a comedy CD and one of the tracks featured Father Guido Sarducci and Al and him and Al's Air America host (at the time) were riffing on the whole selection process and on the selection of Ratzinger as the Pope in 2005.

9. Last I heard, Father Guido Sarducci had gone to the dogs (Portuguese Water Dogs)

Six canines retrieve homers for charity
Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO -- Fans who hope to scoop up splashdown homers in the waters outside Pacific Bell Park have some new competition, and these guys aren't afraid to jump in with all four paws.

Six Portuguese water dogs, known as the Baseball Aquatic Retrieval Korps, or BARK, is on the job. San Francisco's newest team is poised to snag the floating prizes in the name of charity.

The dogs made their splashy debut this weekend leaping from the decks of their motorboat, the Good Ship Jollipup, into the bay just 20 feet beyond the rightfield wall. They are scheduled to appear again Tuesday, when the Giants take on the Colorado Rockies.

BARK is the brainchild of Father Guido Sarducci, the stage name of comedian Don Novello. The self-proclaimed Vatican gossip columnist teamed up with Pets in Need, a Redwood City, Calif.-based animal adoption agency, to locate and train the dogs. Pets in Need will receive a $5,000 donation from the Giants, and can auction any of the balls the BARKers pick up.
