How Could I Get Him To Switch Chairs With Me?


This member of the Russian Patriarchate looks like he's thinking...."So close, and yet...."  However, both he and B16 are listening to a concert dedicated to B16 by Patriarch Kyrill I of Moscow.
This photo likewise made me laugh, but only because of the caption, "Pope Benedict XVI and Italian actress Sophia Loren (R) listen to a concert...." From the caption you'd think they were sitting together. She simply happened to be present as well -- her son directed the Italian orchestra.
