Pope Blesses Harleys and Von Zipper Rides Again


Today, the Pope blessed thousands of Harley Davidson motorcycles and their riders. It may seem amazing to some but the biker culture of HD swarmed the Vatican for the event which also was a celebration of Harley Davidson's 110th year.
The resemblance of this guy to von Zipper
seems miraculous considering the location.
Same source as top photo.
Has Von Zipper been brought back,
maybe as a guardian angel of a biker.
Most amazingly of all though was the fact that the event seems to have somehow, maybe by way of Divine Intervention (after all we are talking about the seat of Catholicism and the end all be all of Motorcycles that are probably even ridden in Heaven), lent itself to the resurrection of Eric Von Zipper (Actor: Harvey Lembeck). You, if you are around my age, may remember him as the evil but inept and somehow lovable leader of the motorcycle gang - the Rat Pack in several of the 1960's Beach Party films starring Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon. Those films were: Beach Party, Bikini Beach, Pajama Party, Beach Blanket BingoHow to Stuff a Wild Bikini, The Ghost in the Invisible Bikini. I think, but am not sure that he may have also had a part in the movie Ski Party where the beach goers have a change of venue to the ski slopes. 

With him riding through the crowd, I can almost imagine he was also there, right next to the Pope, giving the Pope the his take on whether or not to bless a biker and his ride by saying: "Him, I like", or "Him, I do not like".

The resemblance of the guy wearing the American flag helmet and Von Zipper, at least as I see it, is absolutely uncanny if it is not actually him reincarnate. Not only is there the resemblance of facial features and seemingly of height and build but you will note that just as was the preference of  Von Zipper, the guy in the current photo also is in the company of a babe who is taller than is he and who is a looker. Sometimes you just have to wonder if there truly are heaven sent angels flying or at least riding close to the ground. In this case, I would like to believe it. Von Zipper - I am my ideal but you are my idol.

All the best,
Glenn B
