The reality of Trump is overtaking his satire again:

(For what it's worth, "habemus papam" means "we have a pope", most literally, in Latin.)

Is this because the current pope is progressive?

Explaining jokes, huh. While the very current context is multi-layered and thick, I wouldn't think too deeply into this one. Most plausibly, a reminiscence about traditional announcement formula's literal meaning brought the above picture to artist's mind and there he had a weekly joke conceived.

Sorry if I ruined it for anyone else. I was really just curious because it seems like it's political humour localized to where you live. I obviously don't have the same access to daily news as you, so there will be something there I can't hope to "get." Or at least that was my assumption...

That it is a topical musing on papal ascension is good enough for me. Thanks for the explanation!

There is now an Arcade 1up sitdown machine with OutRun, Turbo OutRun, OutRunners and Power Drift.
That's my birthday next year sorted.

Stupid question, I'm assuming it's aimed at being single player so they're not going to go to the effort to implement this, but if you purchase two of these does it support linked/multiplayer games of Outrunners?

I think some of the fighting game ones have wi-fi option for online-play.
