The Pope Deserved a Better Leaving Gift Than This Comic Sans Photo Album

By Jamie Condliffe on at

Officials at the Vatican were faced with a tough question when the Pope announced his retirement: what do you get God's Rottweiler as a leaving present?

Fortunately that question didn't trouble them for long, because the answer was so very, very clear to them: his very own virtual photograph album! And, ladies and gentlemen, here it is, in all its glory.

Sadly, all the pictures in the world of the ex-Pope leading mass, kissing babies and wearing hats can't hide the fact that it seems like someone actually made it in the early 90s. This thing is a mess of textured backgrounds, comic sans, awful page turns, and a page jump feature that looks like it was coded by a child. Poor Pope; he deserved better than this.
