'The Young Pope' has awakened something beautiful in the internet
The Young Pope, an HBO show starring Jude Law as a pope who is not old, has — a week before its premiere date — reached the internet's affectionate embrace.
While no one is quite sure what The Young Pope is, like, about yet, the mere concept of a pope who has been alive for fewer years than other popes has ignited the meme-loving spirits of every single person on Twitter.
Somewhere along the line, those memes transformed into song lyrics, because the Young Pope is — in all his pool-playing, shit-talking, not-old splendor — song incarnate. Glory, glory, hallelujah.

Anyway, here are a bunch of tweets about 2017's best television show. Again, we have not seen it yet, but we already know it's the best. At the very least, it should answer the question on all our minds: is that pope young?

TEEN 1: Church is so boring.
TEEN 2: It's so out of touch.
THE YOUNG POPE approaches pulpit: "Some...BODY once told me—"
TEENS: HOLY SHIT

Stop appropriating young pope culture. We are erasing many of the young popes who have existed in the pre-modern era. (1/234)
