Scary Image of the Day

Does this remind you of anything?

It took me a while to figure out what this image of the Pope called to mind -- overdressed in white, more than slightly menacing despite being seated, wearing a gigantic ring made for kissing -- it's Don Ciccio from one of the flashbacks in The Godfather: Part II, the old fart that the young Vito returned to Italy to kill in order to avenge his father.

The parallels go only so far; enough said.
