Every once in a while I misread "Palpatine" as "Papaltine" and wonder what an Emperor/Pope mashup would look like, and it turns out that look already existed. Marlon Brando in The Island of Dr. Moreau – waxily pale, playing God, obscured by white cloth, posed like he's about to drop a rap album called "The Tragedy of Darth Plagueis The Wise" all in Latin.

@maddiefuzz @erinbee I am sending these to all my priest friends. No lie.

@erinbee Found myself thinking back to this and mentally replacing every instance of “darth” with “pope.” Pope Maul, Pope Grievous…

@nfagerlund "I am your father" hits different coming from Pope Vader.
