Black smoke billowing from the roof of the Sistine Chapel this morning indicates that the College of Cardinals have again failed to elect a new pope. But fear not folks of faith, the very reverend Pub on Passyunk East (aka the P.O.P.E.) has come up with its own candidate for the papacy. It’s none other than Motörhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister. Without all the pomp and secrecy of a Papel Conclave, the South Philly bar, in conjunction with Awesome Dudes Printing, has issued a new t-shirt, depicting a pontiff-ized Kilmister. It replaces the P.O.P.E.’s previous t-shirt, which was emblazoned with a sendup of Black Sabbath’s Vol. 4, with Ozzie Osbourne sporting a pope’s mitre. The shirts are in very short supply, and available at the bar. [pope1501/Twitter]
Update: As a toast to the new Pope, the P.O.P.E. is offering $2 Kenzingers all night, and free Pope Lemmy t-shirts for the first 10 people who come in and mention it.
