Bizarro for April 8, 2013. For those who are not Roman Catholic, an explanation of the joke follows.
This toon appeared not long after Pope Benedict XVI made the decision to step down. When a new Pope is to be elected, the College of Cardinals (the highest rank in priesthood) is summoned to the Vatican to deliberate and vote, and the new Pope must be one of their number. Dan turned this upside-down and sideways to show a cardinal (avian type) wearing the papal mitre (headgear).
