Wait, it's an app? I can't just be friends with him? That's too bad, I was really looking forward to the results of his "WHICH BEATLE ARE YOU?" quiz.

Between this and the report from Ireland, does this mean we can now officially state that Facebook is hunting grounds for child predators?

I love that even when he's trying to look all Maria von Trapp and beatific he's still actually frowning sternly, like he was back giving a meticulous theological beatdown to some underling at the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.

Joseph Alois Ratzinger became a fan of Clandestine Buggery (become a fan).

Well, Harrison's out (Hare Krishna, Krishna Hare) and so is Lennon ("bigger than Jesus") and Macca's a douche, so may I introduce to you, the act you've known for all these years:

Pope Ringo the First.

Call me when Satan is on Facebook.

I signed up, but forgot my password. True story.

O lord, thou hast searched for me, and friended me.
Thou knowest my offlogging and mine onlogging, thou understandest my obscurest status messages.
Thou compassest my browsing and my offline work, and art acquainted with all my ways.
For there is not a message in my inbox, but, lo, O LORD, thou knowest it altogether.
Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.
Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?
If I play MafiaWars, thou art there: if I tend to mine Lil Green Patch, behold, thou art there.
If I list my favorite tomes, and detail my obscurest acquaintances;
Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.
If I say, Surely the I canst hide my onlogging; even the green status light shall be as gray.
Yea, that grayness hideth not from thee; but the gray shineth as the green: the offline and the online are both alike to thee.
For thou hast installed spyware: indeed, even a keylogger and rootkit.
I will praise thee; for I am frightened of thy malware: marvellous is thy code; I try to write otherwise but cannot.

Just wait til he gets his hands on Mafia Wars. They won't be able to pry him away from the computer and he'll start bugging the cardinals to join him on his heists.

I never allow an application to access my profile that does not allow me to spice up the web with tangy zingrs.

Nope. There are only a few of us left in the Resistance but ours is a noble cause!
