World Cup schism?

Cartoonist Jason Bach imagines native Argentinian Pope Francis and Pope Benedict VI, a German, discussing the upcoming World Cup Final.  Some of Bach's humor is purely Catholic -- such as trying to play hide and seek with St. Anthony of Padua, the patron saint of those seeking lost objects.  The ones along these lines -- with "Frank" and "Ben" finding their personal styles at odds -- touch on how, styles apart, the message remains the same.  I find the thought of the two Popes sharing a delivery pizza (hold the anchovies) totally charming.  (Cartoonist Bach regularly posts at, specializing in cartoons of interest to Catholics)
