Man Bites Pope? Pope Bites Dog?

Not sure which cliche-twist I prefer.

Saw a headline yesterday -- the top headline in fact -- to the effect that "Pope Celebrates Christmas." The story went on to say that the Pope celebrated Midnight Mass at the Vatican.

Now, this doesn't entirely strike me as a newsworthy turn of events. A headline like "Pope Ignores Christmas," or maybe "Pope Snubs Midnight Mass." That would pique my interest.
