The Pope and the Spider

Pope Benedict XVIIt’s a slow news day…

While addressing politicians and diplomats in Prague Saturday afternoon, the Pope had a little tag-along visitor. The pope didn’t seem to notice at first — but journalists following the speech on a large screen flinched as the spider inched toward Benedict’s neck.

It disappeared from view for a moment, but then could be seen crawling up the right side of the 82-year-old pontiff‘s face.

When it reached his ear, Benedict gave it a swat. But it didn’t go away — it reappeared on the pope’s left shoulder and scampered down his robe.

As the pope left the medieval Prague Castle’s ornate Spanish Hall, the spider could be seen hanging from a piece of web. [via]
