John Paul II lookalike arrested for 'usurpation of title'

The pope performer was detained on Friday when police told him he will be hit with a fine of between 154 and 929 euros.

"The problem was that he looked a lot like Karol Wojtyla. He was detained for usurpation of title which is a misdemeanour," a police spokeswoman told AFP.

"The cassock he was wearing has been confiscated," she said, adding that the action had been taken after an anonymous complaint.

And as he left the station

He was arrested for impersonating Ghandi because the rags the revenue agents gave him to wear after confiscating his Cossack.

How does one impersonate the title of a dead man anyway? This is absolute insanity, but I did note that like the Vatican this guy had a collection plate for indulgences; perhaps they couldnt handle the competition?

God Bless
