Papal Humor

I happen to think the word "papacy" is one of the funniest ever in the English language. That being said, it has nothing to do with the point of this post.

During the Pope's funeral and memorial services my family was having a discussion which is paraphrased as follows:

The Dad: So who are those men who are always carrying the Pope around?
The Mom: I heard somewhere that it's a job passed down through families and that its an honor to be selected, etc, etc.
The Dad: So basically they are designated pallbearers for the Pope.
Me: No dad, they're John-Paul bearers.
