There’s nothing like a dank (and vaguely sacrilegious) meme to get your week started on the right foot. 

The hashtag #PopeBars was resurrected this weekend after Pope Francis was photographed talking to reporters aboard a plane flying from Cairo to Rome.

Francis’ manner of holding a mic appears strikingly similar to a rapper’s, making it look like the religious leader is, uh, dropping bars.

The subsequent memes looked like this:

This time around, Francis was photographed talking about the very serious topic of mediating the current dispute between North Korea and Washington.
