Thanks to everyone who contributed to our last caption contest! This one was really difficult to judge (stop being so talented, dammit — just stop it), but in the end, we had to pick a winner...
Congratulations to Matthew Pecorino, representin' our loyal Trads:
Pope Francis: "Now sing after me, 'And He will raise you up on Eagles' Wings...'"
Little Pope: "NOOOOO! Introibo ad altare Dei!"
Pope Francis: "Oh, you young people and your fashions."
Honourable mention to Tommy (a.k.a. Tsunami), for this brilliant bit of Papist nomenclature nerdery:
"It's okay, little one, it's okay - sure, only one of us can be me, but I can make you a Cardinal in pectore, no problem."
Excellent submissions, all! This contest should be a good one — I mean, if you can't think of any material for both the Pope and the President, just get out now — so please, leave your captions in the comments below!
