Pope With Horns Optical Illusion


This image of Pope Benedict XVI appeared all arround the world recently! Newspapers, TV, Internet all claimed it’s some kind of no-good sign. Here at Mighty Optical Illusions we all know it’s just an illusion, right? I mean, what could else could it be? Pope with horns, could it be a heavenly sign that pope is a devil? Naah…

From the newspaper:

  • Darth Chaos

    Optical illusion my foot, its a lack of depth perception in the kids these days!

  • Taro

    That’s not an illusion.

    • Ninja Figher

      It is not but yes he’s Evil never the less.

    • cassidy

      THI IS A DUMB PHOTO! the so called “horns” on the pope is the mans color in the back of pope benidect sure its a freak cowinsadence but come pn you can its not horns lets not make a big deal out of this now!

  • Leion

    anyone can be a devil if this is the case

    • U r a dumb head

      Cassidy we all knew that.

  • er

    HAHAHAHA! That’s funny! Hmm, I wonder if it holds meaning. HAHAHA!

  • Me

    Wow… people are so uptight… ‘the less than subtle insult has been noticed’… relax kids it’s a COLLAR. Next time that dude behind him should go out naked so there’s no chance of that happening… :)

    • but his face looks like the devil`s.Doesn’t that say anything???

  • Jilana

    It doesn’t really help that his face looks rather evil in the picture…

  • yulyxxx

    not fake i mean the other pope had a cute and friendly face but look at this one omg freaky

  • whats next the four horsemen

    whats next the four horsemen
    he is the devil
    in white clothing
    death is his affilaite

  • yomero

    his face alone looks evil, I didnt notice the horns till I read the whole thing.

  • weirdo

    that is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo weird but no1 had to go n say anything about it. thats not right

  • Hai

    geez he was like the closest man 2 god and he passed away and the media just has to make fun of him like that! thats cruel and not funny @ all!

  • Al B

    It IS an illusion. Every human being with AVERAGE knowledge knew that they weren’t horns, yet the fact that a religious leader was captured in such a picture is an illusion. I’m sure no one would’ve cared if Ashton Kutcher looked like he had horns. In fact, he does Punk’d, so he IS the devil!

  • biclops

    i think its the beady little eyes and his smile which make the horns look more realistic

  • flib

    that’s hillarious, he is quite evil looking

  • Steppenwolf

    yo Hai! The pope that passed away was John Paul II. This is Benedict XVI. Jeez I’m not even catholic and I know that much! How about reading up on some current affairs dude!? heheheh……

  • qwerty

    yeah, everybody know’s that this is the new pope

  • kayla

    the guy next to the guy behind th pope looks like george washington…..

  • i think nam should not be required

    i think that it looks realistik (kind of anyway) :(

  • wassup

    isn’t this the guy, who made anti islamic remarks?…the devil!

  • Rawr

    its the collar of the man behind silly!!!

  • Caglekahn

    Feel your hatred, it makes you stronger.

  • navilord

    ha! thats’s the funniest thing i hav ever seen! hai, this is the new pope! he is the devil, but for other reasons! and uh, everyone knows it’s the coller, Rawr!

  • A Nonny Mouse (aka Lee)

    Hehe this is cool. The fact that hes evil isnt helped by the fact that, yes, his face looks evil, and that today i learnt he was a member of the hitler youth!
    RAWR to you too


    Big deal, I’m Catholic and i think its pretty funny. Just to continue the chain, RAWR

    Great illusion. But as for the comments in the newspaper article go, I think that people need to calm down. this wasn’t done on pupose.

  • Anonymous

    it is kinda funny….. but it is kinda mean to the pope too cause he is a Christian and stuff… so putting that picture up with him having horns…. is well dunno it is just kinda a bit mean

  • Fabregas HOT !

  • dippiddydoo94

  • Anonymous

    idk if its an illusion…it might b one of da signs of the coming of da appocalyps…cuz one of da signs are that there is gonna b a fake messanger..as in a fake pope…that will tell us stuff dat are against god…

  • hurtz Butt

    the guy behind the pope looks kinda evil as well….hmmmm was he diverting attention away from him self…. i wonder….oh well

  • Whatzizname

    What’s more, it blends in with the white hair. How could the editors be so careless?! I’d tell them to apply for jobs at the police station instead!

  • Baba Booey

  • Anonymous

    does anybody else feel bad for the guy with the collar that caused this mess?

  • Jasmine

    Well thats pretty obvious T_T I mean, the white of the guy behind him on his shirt makes an illusion of devil horns. So what?
