That’s the pope in a suit and tie?
Well, THIS is a FINE mess!
We’re right on deadline for the Time cover story about Pope Benedict meeting Israeli President Shimon Peres in Jerusalem, and we don’t know which is which!
We’re losing money with every minute that goes by! Does anybody have the slightest idea who’s who?
That humongous cross dangling from the one guy’s white outfit COULD be a clue, but I’m not certain. And yeah, those Vatican and Israeli flags may mean something, but… I guess we’ll just have to flip a coin!
Wait! We’re SAVED! Here come some more specific photo captions! Look! The pope is on the left and Peres is on the right! Huzzah!
I can’t believe we came THIS close to getting it wrong!
