I go comaing for 5 TF and you elect the Pope?!
I, udscbt of the peanut butter and jelly sandwich, pledge allegiance to Pope Helper (you know, you never use "the first" until someone else chooses the same name, unless "the first" is actually part of the name).
Maybe I will also read the last newpages now.

I must follow all the other presumed americans into the coma-void. The outsiders insist I continue attending this educational institution thing, though my waking hours there are spent dreaming of the One True Comic. I think I used to have a life before this, but I pay it no heed now.

That's normal, right guys?

Morning all,

Congratulations Pope Helper.

As Cardinals do you get to wear fancy robes? And perhaps a cape?
I always thought the pope should have something cooler than the popemobile. perhaps a mechanized walker like at the end of Aliens.

It seems to be a thing granted only by the De-mods. Not something we can set ourselves.

You take two babies with your cups of coffee? Now that's hardcore. I only have one each. But semenated coffee is the best kind of coffee anyways, baby or not.

OK, quite right, it seems. I had the right scene in my head, but it's been a long time, and I rather thought that was from the end of the first. I'll add it to the list of things I have to watch again someday.

Well really that Thing that keeps slipping into the future woll-did be on either schedule.

Well, I meant that there hadn't been one on the half-hour, though of course we knew that already. I suppose I just wanted to add a little something because posting just the plain unadorned NewPix gets a little monotonous at times.

You have been saved. You should probably hail davean, forum administrator and dark lord among us. Widely speculated to be the origin of Black Hat Guy, it's important that you remember you must never capitalize his name. Ever.

Awesome! Hail davean!

We can rebuild it. We have the technology. We can make it better than it was. Better … stronger … well, maybe not faster.

Scorn‽ Nay, au contraire! I just think they're best provided with a little commentary, especially in these Times of the Long NewPages (& NewPix). With rather little change going on currently, the timing seemed the most relevant thing to mention.

Yes, it's been troubling me too. But I have faith in Great Lord Randall, for I have seen other times before the Beginning of Time, when such was the magnificence of his latest masterpiece that it was, well, late.

So, are the quote filters the April Fool's joke? Are all references to the 4pr1l F00l's jok3 being removed by the filter?
