I suspect, hopefully not rashly, that it's an implied joke about sedevacantism.  Personally, I don't think now is the right time for that.

Yes, bad timing bro. Lets pray!

No joke. February 28 we are all sedes!
My Mum just called me to tell me this. There were rumors he was sick, but that is always the case. I must say, this is quite shocking.
Yes, I am pretty stunned.  The thing that worries me about this as well is the ramifications for non-believers; isn't there a potential that people will look at the papacy like a job now? Just something that you can give up the helm of when you've had enough? 

I always thought about the Papcy a bit like Baptism - you can't unmake yourself Pope any more than you can unmake yourself Baptised; it's something that happened and imprinted an indelible supernatural mark upon you.  Is that wrong?  Perhaps a lack of understanding of Canon law here or something?

We should be more concerned about non-believers denying Christ than their views about the papacy as a job or not.

And nope, the papacy is not a sacrament.
