The Best Of #AskPontifex, In Which The Pope Solicits Questions And Twitter Hilariously Obliges

The answer is YES, @Judes_Dickey

Yesterday we learned Pope Benedict XV has joined Twitter, which means two things: (1) Get ready to be followed by your grandma on Twitter, and (2) We’re going to have so much fun with this. The Pope’s representative at Vatican Communication asked Twitter to post questions for @Pontifex using the hashtag #AskPontifex. According to WIRED, Pope Benedict XVI will post his first tweet on December 12, answering some of these questions. Until then, people can submit questions, and boy is the Vatican going to have a job trying to find the serious questions of faith among everything tagged #AskPontifex from yesterday till the 12th. The hashtag’s contents are truly a thing to behold.
We’ve collected over 30 of the funniest #AskPontifex questions for the Pope we’ve spotted so far. I don’t know if I can wait till the 12th to find out whether His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI would prefer to fight 1000 duck-sized horses or one horse-sized duck. Important matters, these.

Uh, you’re probably asking the wrong guy, @bsfullerton.








That would be an ecumenical matter, @Pornjers
