Twitter went nuts yesterday when a picture of the Pope gripping a microphone like an MC went viral.
The photo, which was taken during the Pope’s trip to Africa, triggered a social media phenomenon as everyone from Talib Kweli to Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda chimed in with their best Papal-inspired bars. Some of these were hilarious to say the least.
Below are some of my favorite #PopeBars I caught on the web.
"My psalms are sweaty, pages wet, arms are ready, the spirit in my body already, lord's spaghetti. #PopeBars"
"Battle skills got the Papal seal. You know the deal, I keeps it real no ceilings on the popemobile #PopeBars" - Talib Kweli
"Is that a World Tour or The Lord's tour? #PopeBars"
As of yesterday, the hashtag #PopeBars clocked in on over 60,000 tweets and with media coverage picking up, it could end up being one of the biggest trending topics of 2015.
Social Media has made the pope the coolest thing sliced bread.
