Separated at Birth?

This one may upset some people, but I´m just sayin´. Paddy posted a papal photo on his blog the other day, and I was struck by the resemblance between His Holiness and the cheerfully macabre Uncle Fester.

Seriously: Both these fellows are celebrities, known and beloved by the masses. Both are known to wear strange clothing. You never see both of them together at the same place. Tell me these two were not separated at birth? They are at least closely related.

(Paddy agrees with me, and even attempted to blog this himself, except he had a better idea going on.)

Interesting. Benedict's smile reminds me always of the Cheshire Cat's who disappears and only leaves his smile behind...

Dearie Me Rebekah!, you do love to stir things up even if only a teeny weeny bit!

I can't imagine the result if you had posted this on a certain camino yahoo group?

Only one way to really tell Luvie,

stick a lightbulb in his mouth and see if it lights up!

Let us know when you get the chance.

Uncle Fester seemed more in touch with reality.

You might notice that; I couldn't possibly comment. Actually, looking around me here in Rome we have the whole Munster family: take your pick.
