'Santa Pope' woos Vatican crowds Pope Benedict XVI appears to
be getting into a different kind of Christmas spirit, donning a Santa-style hat for his weekly appearance at the Vatican.
At a chilly St Peter's Square, the Pope draped a red cloak over his shoulders and covered his head with a red velvet hat lined with white fur.
Is it because...
A) He is an imposter?
B) He had too much to drink at the annual Vatican Christmas party?
C) He did not recieve a gift for the Vatican's "Secret Santa"?
D) Rudolf took a detour and abandoned him?
E) Because Santa is an anagram for Satan?
F) Because he really is a dark Sith Lord who presides over an evil empire?
G) He's a reptilian shape shifter?
H) He's just an old man horsing around, trying to have some good 'ol fashion fun
and enjoyment, to make up for a rather restricted childhood?
J) He is trying to resurrect the spirit of the last Pope?
What do you think?
And what do you suppose he might be thinking in this photo?
