I was bored during my political science class, so I drew St. Mark of Ephesus trampling on the Pope, it is meant to be funny, nothing serious. Oh, yes, I can't draw, I know.

That's what I thought too. It's a hard to draw a little omophorion.

I agree. It was just a little joke, nothing serious.

There are already two deacons in the icon or are those angels? They have the same clothes as you see in icons of St. Stephen the Protomartyr.

I believe a deacon (or even deaconess, at one time) could distribute Communion. However, even though the Theotokos gave birth to Our Lord, there's no evidence she was ordained a deacon. The person with the Communion spoon looks exactly like they make the Theotokos look in other icons, as far as the way she's dressed, so I assume it's her.

I thought the Nobel Prize was supposedly non-political.  Sort of like an Olympic medal for brains. Supposedly.
