There should be a contest to select the new pope (and probably first, but not last) I say that the true pope must post pictures proving his/her skill constructing things with some material (preferably sand/snow/coffee etc.) and then add a handwritten note with a reference to the forum for authenticity (it could really be any sort of contest, i just like seeing people spreading the word to outsiders).

I'll go against the grain and suggest catapult. I considered defending this bold choice with logic, but seeing how there were pages of discussion about whether the water was coffee, I think "logic" left the building long ago. :)

There is no clarification yet on the yukky substance in Megan's mouth, but it is the same colour as the trebuchet. So is the trebuchet made of coffee? Coffee is black too.

so you're saying that we're trying to predict what comes next, and Randall is using it to decide what comes next...
