The Internet is a funny place, where conglomerations of jokesters can have their collective funny bone tickled by something absurd and immediately spawn endless gags on the same theme.
The latest, greatest example is Jude Law's new series, The Young Pope. For whatever reason, the straightforward, does-what-it-says-on-the-tin title of the show has inspired some incredible comedy.
Check out these 12 examples of baby-faced papal humour – one for each disciple.
There are so, so many song lyrics about this thing. Here’s one:
And oh alright, here’s another:
Some punters imagined the pitch meeting
Here’s another inside look at that meeting
A few angles are based on the rebelliousness of youth
While others focus on incongruous fashion...
Some went for a pun-based attack
Naturally there had to be a callback to Superbad’s McLovin
And a list of potential sequels
When the show started, it lived up to expectations
Even if viewing is... transformative
Hmm, this pope looks well beyond his kitten days
Binge the complete season of The Young Pope available now at SBS On Demand. The series will also broadcast Wednesdays at 10:25pm on SBS.
