    "Young Pope" Jokes Are Already The Best Jokes On The Internet

    He's not like a regular pope, he's a cool pope.

    In case you haven't heard, there's a new HBO show premiering Jan. 15 starring Jude Law as a young pope. It is called The Young Pope.

    HBO

    Law plays Lenny Belardo, aka Pius XIII, who is not only a Very Young Pope but also the First American Pope. He SMOKES and does NOT play by the rules.

    And despite the fact that The Young Pope hasn't even premiered in the US yet, people have already got plenty of pope-centric jokes.
