Want to be the next Pope? Apply on LinkedIn

It's obviously a competitive position, but please don't submit a Vine resume. That's a sin not even God would forbid.

Unhappy at your current job? Looking for something with more influence, a company car, and swanky on-campus housing? Craving some security in this increasingly unstable economy?

If you answered yes to any of the answers, then it sounds like you’re ready to be the next Pope.

A listing for the supreme leader of the Catholic Church’s position briefly appeared on LinkedIn searching for a candidate that’s heralded as a “great opportunity for an executive professional seeking that next big challenge in their life.” It has since been deleted.

The requirements sorta rival that of what it takes to be the Dillon High School football head coach: a born leader, strong public speaker, proactive in solving problems. But then there’s the downsides that Eric Taylor wouldn’t tolerate, like being celibate, and he would definitely wouldn’t turn the other cheek against the whole sex abuse issue.

Those interested can apply to its Gmail address ([email protected] because sure) and it’s an equal opportunity position—unless you’re a woman, the page notes.

It’s obviously a competitive position, but please don’t submit a Vine resume. That’s a sin not even God would forbid.
