John Paul II, outrageous standup comedian and homophobic pope, died in a Vatican hotel room April 2, 2005. He was 84. Like his hero, John Belushi, John Paul II died of a drug-induced heart attack. His crowd-pleasing, funny-guy antics won him wide appeal.
He was born somewhere in Poland a long time ago and grew up in the hood. He was the great-grandson of slaves, grandson of a sharecropper and son of an insurance salesman. His close family was always joking around and John Paul II was always making the kids at school laugh.
John Paul II made many TV appearances: HBO's "Larry Sanders," "Dennis Miller Live," MTV's "Road Rules," "The Late Show with David Letterman," "The Tonight Show," and "Late Night with Conan O'Brien." He will be missed by millions but not by me. He never answered my calls.
I suggest that the cardinals elect David Letterman to be the next pontiff. They did listen to me yesterday (about pulling the tube) So, who knows...
