Obsessed with the Papal Smoke Cam

Pope Smoke Cam

As the conclave continues, I can’t help but watch the Pope Smoke Cam.  I may be obsessed with it.

Vatican TV has a Pope Smoke Cam, doesn’t have a video, but it will tell you a definitive YES or NO if there is white smoke… But the best way to find out whether or not a new Pope has been elected is to watch NBC News live Pope Smoke Cam.  It’s all smoke pipe, all the time.

If you have no idea what I’m talking about, here’s what’s going on…. The Washington Post does a great job of explaining it…

“The symbol of the Catholic Church is the pope. The symbol of the papal conclave is a chimney. Six feet tall, made of copper, affixed to the top of the Sistine Chapel. The function of the chimney is to provide, at meaningful times after each vote for a new pope, smoke. White smoke means pope. Black smoke means nope. The cardinals took an oath on Tuesday, then sequestered themselves in the chapel and disappeared from the public eye. Then there was nothing to watch but cameras watching for smoke.”

And now, I’m thoroughly obsessed with watching the smoke cam.  Experts are saying that we might see white smoke by today!  Possibly between 1pm and 2pm this afternoon….

I’ll be watching.
