Pseudo-affectionate name of new Pope Benedict XVI, whose given surname, Ratzinger, was cleverly clipped and added to "papa," Italian for "pope," perhaps to suggest the celebrity-seeking, camera-clutching "paparazzi" of the last fifty years.
Can you believe that the conclave of cardinals at the Vatican elected Joseph Ratzinger to be the next pope? I wonder if Papa Ratzi knows that his new nickname means "annoying flies" in Italian.
