The New Pope DOES look like the Emperor from Star Wars

From looking at our statistics the last couple of days, it appears that there are many people out there who are wondering if the new Pope does indeed look like the Emperor from Star Wars. Someone mentioned in our comments that he does, and since then we've had hits on:
pope benedict looks like emperor, pope looks like the emperor, new pope looks like star wars, benedict xvi emperor star wars, pope benedict xvi looks like the devil, benedict look like emperor star wars, star wars emperor looks like new pope


Wow, there is a general curiosity out there that I intend to satisfy.

Let's conduct a little survey here.

I will post a picture of each of them. In the comments, you the reader try your best to tell which is which. (No cheating by doing research, go off the top of your head here).

Picture A:


Picture B:


Once you're finished trying to tell these all powerful Doppelgangers apart, feast your thoughts on this little tidbit. The Emperor's name is Palpatine. An adjective meant to describe all things Pope is Papal. Papaltine and Palpatine! And I bet you they both use Paypal when they buy things off of eBay, too. (Incidentally, if you search for Palpatine on eBay, you get 712 items for sale. If you search for Pope, you get to bid on 7841 items.)

I'd just like to point out that I was the one who said he looked like the emperor.

I am so cool.

That is all.
