"The problem was that he looked a lot like Karol Wojtyla. He was detained for usurpation of title which is a misdemeanour," a police spokeswoman told AFP on Friday.

Man, I'd have tried to usurp the papacy if I'd known it was only a misdemeano(u)r.

Usurping the papacy is a fine. Usyurping the pancakery is delicious. Got it.

.......which means he would have slapped, publicly caned and fined for resembling the current pope.

In Rome. He was in Rome.

Anyone who doesn't know you can get a world of inconvenience heaped on you for impersonating a priest in Rome kind of deserves what they get. They take that shiat seriously.

Especially a dead one. Just imagine your shock when you round a corner and suddenly, holy mother! It's the holy father!

Lucky he didn't dress like Akenaten. They would have chiseled his face off.

He shoulda just told them he was a kiddie diddler and they would have transferred him to Spain.

He should have stuck to his guns and sad he WAS JP2 and he was sent back to Earth to save the human race. It's a miracle!

Article fails to mention whether or not he had a cross shaved into his pubic hair.

Dude was a dude and not a chick.  Cruciform pubic hair is a distinctly chick thing.

Is that some secret pope thing used to ward off vampiric altar boys?

The Catholic Secret Police and their network of informants. Be warned.

Well - certainly if he resembled the not-quite-dead retired one.

Am I the only one who misread as "Paypal" ???

Pounding the bishop is still perfectly legal, though, right?  God I hope so.  Sometimes those suckers need to learn their place.

Came for Papa Emeritus II, lesving satisfied and looking for my ipod.

He should have dressed as a Penn State administrator.

#1, The pope is a Bishop.

Impersonating a much beloved person in his home country might get you in trouble.  Poland doesnt get much respect in the west.  There is no comparison I know of to express the level of euphoria for an oppressed people under the Soviet regime finding out that one of their own has been selected to me the Leader of the Church -- A church in which most of its leaders were Italian --  So, a Polish guy from a communist puppet state was an unheard of change of pace.

If someone wants to go around looking like PJ2, I would advise him to do it anywhere except Poland.

What kind of bullshiat is this? I always thought Rome was at least a bit progressive. This sounds more like the meddlings of a theocracy. I guess old ways die hard.

Stick to dressing in drag like normal people.

FTFA: "He was taken away by two officers in civilian clothes who were pretending to be tourists."

So civilians can't dress all papal, but cops can dress all civiliany and touristy.
