    They vote, burn the ballots, add a chemical for black smoke-no Pope elected, or white-We have a Pope. But they’d have to be on another bunch of chemicals to elect an American as Pope. That isn’t going to happen.

    I can remember one papal election when there was confusion because the smoke was the wrong colour. I think it was the election of John XXIII.

    I would NOT call that smell ‘potpourri.’ I’d call it BOVINE EXCREMENT ………….

    “Popery” and smoke! A double zinger today. Well done.

    Potpourri is pronounced popery. Sounds like electing a new Pope.

    If only the next one would take the name George Ringo I, I’d be happy.

    Actually, I think the confusion reigned at the election of John Paul II. That was when they even threw smoke grenades into the furnace to try to get white smoke to come out. Historically they’ve used the damp straw trick; but these days I think they’re planning on enhancing the burn a bit.

    Similar things may have happened more than once. The incident I have in mind predated John Paul II by quite a few years. It was either John XXIII or Paul VI.

    Well, they certainly seem to have fixed the smoke problem . . . .
