Who Are They Guarding - Monty Python?

We have to agree with Michael Stickings, over on The Reaction (disclosure, this writer is a Contributing Editor there), that this, indeed, is the Photo of the Day!

New recruits of the Vatican's elite Swiss Guard march during the swearing in ceremony at Saint Peter's Square at the Vatican. The Swiss Guard, founded in 1506 and consisting of 100 volunteers who must be Swiss, Catholic, single, at least 174 centimetres tall and beardless, celebrate their 502nd anniversary this year.
Half harlequin, a little Medieval chest plate, mixed in with an homage to the doorman at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel in San Francisco.

How would they stop some crime?

Run over, and like they could sprint in those outfits, and have the criminal fall down, pissing himself laughing?

They look like something out of a Monty Python skit!
One day, lad, all this will be yours

"What, the curtains?

And the requirements ...Catholic and single ...

For the Vatican, the world's largest warehouse of men who like younger men who are "Catholic and single" ...

And dress like toys ...
