Both of these stories cracked me up this week: a California inmate cited his religious belief in Seinfeld’s “Festivus” holiday in a bid to get salami-free prison meals, and a quartet of buff acrobats performed a bizarre barechested show for Pope Benedict during his general audience.

The Festivus story is more fun to read and interesting to dissect, but the Vatican acrobat performance is hilarious to watch:

Reminds me of this Saturday Night Live skit. (Perhaps SNL will spoof the Vatican version this week — Jeff Bridges, Eminem and Lil’ Wayne are the guests, which would certainly be interesting! But it’ll probably just be “Weekend Update” fodder.)
