The Holy Trinity -- New! Improved!

This photo topped an article in today's Philadelphia Inquirer -- the story was about Paula Brown, the soon-to-be ex-mayor of Darby, PA.

Brown has been a highly entertaining mayor -- especially 2004's standoff where she barricaded herself in her office for several days because the city council was planning on evicting her from her office by changing the locks. (Long story...)

But what got my attention was the picture hanging over her head:

A holy trio: Jesus...what appears to be a pope...and J.F.K.


I just don't get it. Twelve years of Catholic school, and I just don't get it.

What do the unidentified Pope & J.F.K. have in common? That Jesus thinks they're both groovy?

Now, if it was Sinatra, J.F.K. and Jesus, that I'd understand.

Maybe that pope was the son of a bootlegger and had "relations" with Marilyn Monroe, too?

Just guessing. Awesome that you caught that image. I'd like a copy of that to go along with the "12 Apostles" wristwatch I bought in Armenia.

"Hey, friend! What time is it?"

"Why, it's Peter past Paul!"

I bet that watch is a real piece of art -- why would you ever wear any other?

Wait - Jesus is white?

Actually, all three of them look a little grey and pixelated to me...

There's so much weird here. Like Jesus seems to really be staring at a spot on JFK's scalp. And why is JFK feeling Pope Paul's tummy?

Call Oliver Stone.
