The Spider And The Pope

Sun Sep 27, 2009 7:14 pm

We all know of this now famous episode where US President Obama killed a fly that kept bothering him during an interview.

A similar episode happened yesterday in Prague while the Pope was delivering a speech to an assembly of most serious looking politicians and diplomats who had solemnly gathered to hear him.

You can see this small spider crawling up and down the Pope's white garment, disappearing and appearing again all the while the Pontiff was speaking.

Apparently the Pope did not seem to be the least disturbed by the spider. I wonder if he even noticed it. I also wonder if the spider got inside his neck collar in the end.

The video will come up after the short commercial.
There was a better way to fly it was called Concorde
