Taste Is Subjective, Ain't It? 

Pope Dope

The gap-toothed, 46-year-old mom of two went as a nun, while her wide-eyed, 36-year-old husband, Guy Ritchie, strutted through the doors as the pope.

Both of them were dripping in crucifixes on Holy Thursday, just three days before Christianity's most sacred holiday, Easter.

But it was Ritchie's gold-trimmed white garb and matching skullcap that drew the most ire of Catholic leaders, who were incensed over his timing, considering that Pope John Paul II's worldwide flock is in grief over his poor health.

"Her husband suggests that he's just as depraved as his wife," said Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League.
Actually, if you ask me, he's not dressed as THE pope; he's dressed as A pope. To tell the truth, he looks more like Pious XII to me. Saying he's dressed as John Paul II is like saying that Madonna is dressed as Mother Teresa. And as anyone can see, she looks more like Mary Tyler-Moore from "Change of Habit."

In fact, if you want to talk bad taste, what the fuck is up with that headline? Pope Dope? I mean, come on NYP - WTF?
