Same page, baby.
That is too funny. My friend has pictures taped on his yearbook like Yoda, Darth Vader, and the Pope (because he said he looked like the emperor).
Right he is. ;) You should print this out for him. The resemblance IS uncanny.
Of course he does. ;)
I'm almost okay with this.. because maybe now the Jedi and the New Republic will come down to Earth for the Intergalactic Battle, and I'll get to marry a Solo. Or if not a Solo, maybe a Calrissian. I'm not picky. If they're part of the Star Wars Universe and humanoid, we're golden.
This really cracks me up! I had seen the icon posted before. Since SW came out, I have heard the emperor compared to the Pope and Bush a lot.
*nod* Totally. I've seen the icon too, but this was the best full screen image I've found. I gottta admit, I REALLY enjoy it. ;)

Um, you mean Revenge of the Sith?
Bush is Darth Dader and Cheny is Darth Sidious

Re: Um, you mean Revenge of the Sith?
Yes, that's what I meant. ;)
And, no. I don't give Bush and Cheney that much credit. The villians in Star Wars are evil, but exciting, too. Seductive...
Bush and Cheney are just a big mistake.
It makes me happy to see I wasn't the only one who saw the resemblance...
But, I can't help but wonder... Am I the only one who stood up and shouted "The Dark Lord!" The first time they saw the new pope? >,<'' I'm such a geek...
And, yet, so many people don't get why I think he's evil... He's evil I tell ya! (O.O)
I guess the fact that he was in the HItler Youth wasn't enough?
*Works on finding a picture of Jesus, and putting it beside either Obi Wan or Lukey*
Haha I literally just got back from watchin that, literally laughing out loud!
LOL! Rock on. ;)
Uncanny, isn't it?
LOl oh good job that's just... oh dear we all live in fear now
I lived in fear before.
Now I live in fear with something to grin about to myself...
To who, exactly?
The Emperor? ;)
I haven't seen the new movie yet, now I'm going to be thinking about the new pope ever time I see the Emperor!!! Did they do it on purpose...I know he wasn't pope yet, but he was one of the top ones in line...or does the actor just look like him?
Was reading some of the comments above about current Pope...not Catholic so I've heard nada about the guy other than he's the knew guy in charge. I'm gonna have to start asking my Catholic friends about him now...very intrigued and somewhat concerned.
Actually the picture of the Emperor here is from Return of the Jedi which was in 82? And that was you know, a couple of decades before John Paul was showing any sign of croaking. I don't think there's any correlation between the casting of the guy who plays Palpatine back in the 80's and just happened to be reprising his role right around when Pope Ratzenazi became the leader of the Catholic church, I wonder what kinds of conversations Pope Ratzenazi has with God? I wish I could pipe into that line..
And yeah, I'm concerned too. :)
I still haven't seen this movie yet... Oh sigh. But that is what tomorrow is for! Hooray!
After all, tomorrow is another day. ;)

Stupid question when logic is applied, but good when abandoned.
So if the guy that plays Darth Sidious looked like the Pope with all the make up in 82, then if we had removed the make up, would we have a young Razenazi?

Re: Stupid question when logic is applied, but good when abandoned.
Ooooh. Following that train, I would say yes, it is very possible.
