POPOPOLY: THE NEW MEDIA SATURATION GAME
Each time you hear "Pontiff" take a drink
Dive under the covers and take a shot whenever you hear "Conclave"
Sing a Beatles song (from start to finish) for every "John Paul II"
Light up whenever they talk about the white smoke.
Torch something when it's black.
Don something red for every mention of "Cardinal" (two items if it's plural). When you run out of clothes, switch to slathering yourself with red-tinged food and drink. No bathing til the smoke turns white.
Remove a piece of clothing for each "Fresco."
Read the back of a different cereal box for every mention of The Da Vinci Code.
Fall on your face every time NPR's Sylvia Poggioli files a report.
Fall on your sword if it's a rerun.
Hook up sans birth control each time Vatican II is invoked.
Stop in the middle if you hear "Wooden Balls."
Slap someone silly 16 times for each "Sistene." (If no one's around, pop in the "Sixteen Candles" DVD).
Defecate each time you hear a pundit pontificate.
Wander the streets like an Alzheimer's patient when they say "Rome."
Return home when the bells start to ring.
