Kit - what good news does a postcard bring

Before FD jaunted off on his round-the-world-trip to Iceland via England, he sent out a call for postcards. I responded (as one does), and very soon a veritable flood of European postcards started turning up.

We had a new starter with us this year, and a few weeks into his new role he asked me:
"So, are you going to World Youth Day this year?"
Me: ?!?!?!?!!!*?!!**
NS: I ask because you've got a picture of Pope Benedict on your desk
Me: …….um? I thought it was John Paul the second

When I got back to work, I had to hide the postcard of the Pope, I couldn't stand him waving at me anymore.

29/5 edit: It didn't come through in the original post, but the reason I went and hid the postcard is because there was also a rather painful discussion on how difficult the Pope must find his job, what with taking into account previous edicits from the Church, and all that advice from his senior advisors. What are they, bishops?
