Film at 11: The itsy-bitsy spider crawled up the pontiff stout...  
Boy, if I were a Revelations-Apocalypse-Anti-Catholic Fundy Conspiracy Prophecy Nut (or at the very least, Alan Moore and Steve Bissette), I'd milk this for all it's worth:

I mean, creepy, crawly spider scuttling all over the man many have dubbed Pope Palpatine? If I didn't like spiders, I'd be having a field day!

As it is, however, it just makes me go "awwwww, how cute!"

I feel: amusedamused

Given the starched state of that outfit, I doubt that His Holiness even knew the spider was there. Although, I bet one of his aides off-camera was just twitching to brush it off. He probably had a good laugh about it when he was told by the Vatican's press corps.

I always preferred the nomenclature "Pope Sidious," myself.

I like how at the end, the spider is all like, "This is boring. I'm outta here."
