JOKERS flooded the net with Pope gags last night — here are a few:

The Pope is resigning. He will soon be known as Ex-Benedict.

The Pope’s pension is to be paid via PayPal.

To be fair I bet his boss is proper demanding. (Bob J Williams)

BBCSport: Peter Odemwingie spotted sitting in The Vatican car park demanding to be let in. More to follow.

The Pope is hardly the first person to lose interest in their real job so soon after joining Twitter. (Sixthformpoet)

That’s me in the corner, that’s me in the spotlight losing my religion... Pope at karaoke. (D Litchfield)

ST PETER'S was struck by lightning in a freak display of nature that could have been seen as a sign from God.

The Vatican's holiest church was hit with the high-powered bolt just hours after the Pope resigned.

Rome was lit up as a powerful electric storm passed through the city and cameras caught the moment a ferocious bolt zig-zagged through the night sky before striking the roof of the famous basilica.

The 500-year-old church is one of the most important holy buildings in the Vatican and hosts many Papal ceremonies.

ROOF of holiest Catholic church St. Peter's Basilica was hit by fierce bolt during an electric storm in Rome last night

Pope Benedict XVI stunned the world yesterday by standing down after eight years as head of the Catholic Church at the age of 85.

Benedict - real name Joseph Ratzinger - claimed he was too frail to carry on in the role.

His successor will be elected next month by 120 Catholic cardinals.
