25 People Who Probably Aren't Being Considered As Serious Candidates To Be The Next Pope

So the papal conclave has begun. Not being a Roman Catholic myself, I don't know this firsthand, but I have heard recently that any baptized male Catholic can technically be considered a candidate for the papacy. Well, I doubt if you'll hear any of these names being bandied about as serious contenders in the coming days and weeks, but I'm just throwing them out there for the sake of argument since they technically qualify for the job. (And yes, my tongue is planted firmly in my cheek as I write this.)  ~  JH
