Lions and tigers and popes! Oh my!
I’m back with another episode of Stuff Maybe We Should Have Explained in the Caption, but Didn’t.
I mean, we know there has been bad blood between Christians and lions. Is this some kind of a rapprochement?
Or did the pope mention to an inept aide that he is a “Cubs fan,” and this was the result?
I am happy to report the caption makes clear that the pope is the guy on the right, so as not to confuse readers who might mistake him for the young dude with sideburns and a circus costume.
