Pope Gives Props

I don't advise searching for the word "Pope" because 99% of the search results are scatological, e.g. a foul-mouthed takeoff of MTV's "Pimp My Ride" called "Pope My Ride." (It's not as funny as it sounds, believe me. The definitive "Pope My Ride" has yet to be done; I leave it to The Curt Jester.) However, buried within the morass are a few gems — like this clip of John Paul the Great watching breakdancers and "giving them their props," as the person who posted the clip puts it. If you're like me, you'll find yourself going from laughter to tears within the space of a second.

There is also a clip revealing that the trash cans at Washington's JP2 Cultural Center talk. Who knew?
