That wasn't an overheating Fiat in Vatican City on Wednesday (thanks for that, Billy!)
Nope; the white smoke meant the cardinals had elected a new pope.
Reminded me of the mid-1980s when the then-pope (John Paul? Can't remember...) visited Canada.
A specialty vehicle manufacturer in Montreal modified a General Motors pickup truck to transport him around.
A CBC radio show (also can't remember which one...) ran a listener contest to come up with a more appropriate name for this vehicle than 'Popemobile'.
Even the Pope apparently thought that term wasn't 'dignified'.
The winning entry?
And no, it was not my entry.
Walt McCall, the-then PR manager for Chrysler Canada, suggested his company should have built that vehicle.
"We could have called it the 'Jesus Chrysler'."
Well, I thought it was funny...
