It’s impossible to not see it the second you look at one of the pictures. The Pope holds his mic like a rapper.

It’s so obvious that anyone who has ever seen a rap video (e.g. probably not the Pope) can recognize it immediately.
This, of course, has led to Twitter having a field day, imagining the fire and brimstone that the Most Holy Father might be spitting. On Saturday, flying home from Cairo, he spoke to reporters about the increasingly tense relationship between the United States and North Korea.
It’s a serious situation, and one Pope Francis said could lead to the destruction of “a good part of humanity.”
Buuuuuuut, that picture is too perfect to be left alone. It literally looks like his boys are holding him back in the middle of a fierce rap battle.

Garrett Green of New York City was feeling particularly inspired and dropped ten whole verses that are legitimately pretty tight.

Okay technically the Pope is elected, but we’ll let it slide.

Pope Francis has shown himself to be a man with a good sense of humor, so he probably wouldn’t be offended by any of this but, if you have the time, he’d probably appreciate you actually taking a few minutes out of your day to meditate about ways to prevent World War III for rizzle.
