The younguns won't get it, I'm sure.

Seriously. They elected a new pope. And I don't think it was the Biff guy. Or Hendrix.


Pope Jimi! Courtesy Keiran, of course.

Today's bit of irony: I find out a new Pope is elected from an atheist.

And this youngun gets it.

Nice 'shop. The lyrics to All Along the Watchtower are probably also appropriate in some way, but I'll need to get stoned to figure it out.

Thanks. I had a dickens of a time selecting just the smoke area for the colorization layer.

It looks like Ratzinger has chosen Halo 3 as his papal name, perhaps he's not as conservative as was previously thought.

I was hoping he would go for Pope OMGWTFLOL!

That's a better idea. Hell, I'd have voted for him if that was part of his candidacy proposal.

Wrestlemania XVI would also be cool, but it was taken back in 2000.

It's about time the leadership of the Catholic Church recognized the threat of The Flood.

Purple Haze or not, Jimi wouldn't be right considering the recent sex scandals in the Catholic church. I mean look the last stanza in the first verse:

"'scuse me while I kiss this guy"

We can't have that kind of person as Pope, even if he is dead.

that was the best laugh I've had in a while. Loved the smoke!

I kind of like Pontificus in Da Hizouse

"'scuse me while I kiss this guy"

huh? okay, it's a joke, right? This tune is known for being one of the most misheard (mispronounced) songs. Can you blame the listener?! Jimi was heavily dosing.

{cough? }
Purple haze all in my brain
Lately things just donít seem the same
Actiní funny, but I donít know why
íscuse me while I kiss the sky
Purple haze all around
Donít know if Iím cominí up or down
Am I happy or in misery?
What ever it is, that girl put a spell on me
Help me
Help me
Oh, no, no
[faint, spoken lyrics...all questionable]
Talkiní íbout heart íní...s-soul
Iím talkiní about hard stuff
If everbodys still around, fluff and ease, if
So far out my mind
Somethings happening, somethings happening
Ooo, ahhh
Ooo, {click} ahhh,
Ooo, ahhh
Ooo, ahhh, yeah!
Purple haze all in my eyes, uhh
Donít know if itís day or night
You got me blowiní, blowiní my mind
Is it tomorrow, or just the end of time?
Help me
Ahh, yea-yeah, purple haze, yeah
Oh, no, oh
Oh, help me
Purple haze, tell me, baby, tell me
I canít go on like this
Purple haze
Youíre makiní me blow my mind...mama
Purple haze, n-no, nooo
Purple haze, no, itís painful, baby

Uh, yeah. It's a joke. You know. Misheard lyrics. Gay stuff (a guy kissing a guy?). Get it?

JFH: hilarious. Squirted diet coke right outta my face.


Hey Joe, where you goin with that staff in yore hand?


shove an "r" whrever you can fit it.

You just want this fistfight?

'Scuse me while I bless this guy!

Jimi was aware of how the line "'Scuse Me, While I Kiss the Sky" could be misheard, and in concert would often sing "'Scuse Me, while I kiss this guy" while pointing at Noel Redding.
