As an aside, the Pope Odds are up at PaddyPower. It is interesting to note that the tightest odds are for the Ghanaian Cardinal Peter Turkson quoted at 7/2. Having an African Pope would certainly be an unexpected alternate future, but definitely not as entertaining as Richard Dawkins taking papacy, the famous biologist and atheist, the Dawk is quoted inside Bono (1000/1) at 666/1!
