If you like Pope Benedict… you’ll love Charlie Sheen

A Contrarian reader recently added Pope Benedict XVI’s new Twitter account to his Twitter feed. Whenever a user follows someone new, Twitter responds by suggesting a similar person they might also like to follow.

Who is similar to His Holiness? Why Charlie Sheen, of course.



Ah the wonders of social technology. Twitter doesn’t say exactly which qualities the pontiff and the thespian share. Surely not substance abuse or cohabitation with porn stars. Problems with anger management could be a possibility, but our money is on having children removed from your care for their own protection.
