I'm well aware of that, but I thought it was established many many Newpix ago that it was to be called either DONG or BONG (and definately not BING).

As Pope, I do solemnly appoint yee 'Apostolic Vistitator', Holiest of Holy Fun-Havers.

It doesn't look like a statue (yet), as I previously thought. Maybe they're building a tomb of the unknown stickfigure.

do we have a need for some kind of Holy Geophysicist? it seems to be a niche that fake Vatican based pope bloke has missed.
