Elyse nominated this week’s winner, posted in a Quickies thread concerning the Catholic Church’s decision to OK belief in aliens. I debated this (internally) for weeks days multiple minutes before deciding to agree with her and hand over the award with one exception. Read on!

Way to get with the times Catholicâ€™s, the Space Pope said it was okay to believe in humans decades ago.
Congrats, TeamBanzai. You were going to receive a prize of $500 and a trip to the Vatican, but your prize has been rescinded due to improper use of an apostrophe. Sorry, but that’s just the way we roll here, and if I allowed such poor grammar to make it through unscathed, my friend Jeff would travel to the Internets to forcibly correct the typo.
So, instead of the trip to the Vatican, enjoy this related space/pope item courtesy of one of my fave webcomics, Overcompensating!
PS, Bostonians: I’m heading across the river to see Carl Zimmer speak at the Harvard Book Store tonight at 7pm. His new book is Microcosm: E. coli and the New Science of Life. If I’m in a good mood afterward, we can all get drinksies! Chicagoans, don’t forget that you guys are getting together tomorrow. I am not jealous. Fer realz. Those of you in the rest of the world, keep your eye on the Skepchick events calendar!
