Breakin' 3: Ecclesiastic Boogaloo
January 26, 2004 10:44 AM   Subscribe

Breakdancers receive blessing from the Pope. A story about the papacy that isn't frustrating, just for a change. It doesn't say it in the article, but I like to think that His Holiness learned to do the Worm.

Please don't make the Pope seem cute or likable.

So can we expect some "grunge" rockers to visit the pope in about another 10 years?

Well, last time I saw His Holiness, he definately had the whole "shakin' like a Polaroid" thing down cold.

I saw this earlier today and thought it was hilarious. Talk about your juxtaposed visual images.

I don't know about you, but whenever I think of the Pope, I think "breakdancing"

From the pic, that marble floor must have been a smooth surface to "break" on. Who needs cardboard?

I just hope that Turbo and Ozone can raise enough money to save the community center.

Wonder how long it'll be before he sees the lambada.

I am surprised he didn't arrange an exorcism when they did the headspin.
