Habemus papam. 

Why didn't he just call himself Pope Joe?

It's not as if his first name were Mercury:

'The first pope known to have changed his name was John II in 533. He was previously called Mercury but thought the Christian pontiff should not have the name of a pagan Roman god.'

Quite frankly, I like the sound of Pope Mercury. Or Pope Pluto for that matter. Pope Uranus, probably not.

is it time for a nap yet? i think so
