The real headline was something about the two leaders of their respective religions (Eastern Orthodoxy and Roman Catholicism) kissing. I'm sure this sort of thing gives ecumenicists the warm fuzzies.
One cannot fail to notice, however, the EP's enormous, highly ornate, crown. Especially in view of the pope's choice of going with much more low-key garb for the event (though one assumes that the mitre shown worn here by John 23rd is still kicking around the Vatican somewhere), the EP's regalia stands out.
So, since humor is so rarely expressed on this blog, I thought it might be nice to have a little fun with recaptioning the image shown above.
1) "This really was not a mitre-optional event, Ben."
2) "I'd have worn a zucchetto too, but it would not cover my enormous brain."
Any thoughts from my readers?
