Eastwood and the Pope Make My Day

Pope empty chair
Oh my gosh, this photo from Reuter’s social media gallery is hilarious. Being the first Pontiff to abdicate in forever, Reuters (surely with Eastwood in mind) hits the Pope with the empty chair.

Here’s the preceding shot.

(photo: Stefano Rellandini/Reuters caption: An empty papal throne lies in the Vatican’s Paul VI hall before Pope Benedict XVI’s Wednesday general audience February 13, 2013. Cardinals around the world began informal contacts to discuss who should next lead the Church through a period of major crisis and the Vatican said it planned a big send-off for Pope Benedict before he becomes the first pontiff in centuries to resign.)
