Spider Pope!

Spider PopeIs it an omen?– – A large arachnid appeared on Pope Benedict XVI’s white robes as he addressed politicians and diplomats in Prague on Saturday afternoon (see speck on shoulder)!  The Pope didn’t seem to notice at first, but the not so itsy-bitsy spider made journalists flinch as the arachnid inched towards Benedict’s neck!

The spider disappeared from view for a moment, but then could be seen crawling up the right side of the pontiff’s face- –eww! When it reached his ear, Benedict gave it a swat…but the persistent arachnid reappeared on the Pope’s left shoulder and then scampered down his robe.  As the Pope left Prague Castle’s Spanish Hall, the spider could be seen hanging from a piece of web!

– -Well, that spider’s now darned to heck…but will the Pope  gain amazing arachnoid powers?- –That would be so cool!!!- -And what a recruitment tool for the church!- –I’d warm a pew for that!- -I can see a Marvel Comics cover now!

<sings> Spider-Pope!- -Spider-Pope!- -He does everything a Spider-Pope does!

    It’s nothing to joke about. Depatie-Freleng (creators of “The Pink Panther”) had a one-season wonder on Saturdays, during the 1960’s, called…SUPER-PRESIDENT!!!
