I would have taken his picture and joined his church.

11. It's Less Ridiculous Than Many Hats Mandated By Many Other Religions

You think it was any less ridiculous when someone first approached the Pope and said, "Holy Father, I think you should start wearing this pointed hat that makes you look like a giant upside-down post-hole digger,"? But do something ridiculous for 2,000 years and people will just accept it.

Religion in general has a lot of dogged adherence to silly and meaningless ritual. It was one of Martin Luther's main criticisms.

13. Who'll be laughing when a ceiling tile falls? Huh? HUH???

In all seriousness, this is why bureaucrats suck. If it didn't obscure his face or hair color, WHO THE FUCK CARES??? Jeezus, I'd laugh, take his photo, and send him on his way.

14. Not that it isn't cute...

But there are some places taking a stand just isn't terribly productive. These include international border crossings, airport boarding lounges and the DMV.
