Happy Weekend!

I actually rewatched Pope Michael this week after mentioning it in a post — and you know what? It holds up. So if you didn't watch it when I linked to it then, here it is for you to enjoy or bookmark now. It is documentary about a (somewhat recently deceased) guy in Kansas who believed he was the Pope and was elected to that position by his parents. His mom is the best and probably one of the most supportive parents of all time. He wanted to be the pope and she was like "Yes, you're obviously the pope now."

It's like a sedevacantist Grey Gardens.

Point of order — I am starting to run low on pet pics for the Top Ten, so if you want your baby to be a STAH, send a 900 x 600 photo of them to robyn@wonkette.com with the subject line Pet Pics. That last bit is important because otherwise I'm not going to find it among the myriad press releases, letters from angry men and psychics of all genders and emails from people who are clearly not very good at writing who want to write "guest posts" for us about casinos, golf or investing in bitcoin.

And here are your top ten stories of the week!
