Black-and-white proof that fools seldom differ. ‘Holy smoke’ is regularly trotted out on any story about the Pope, and it doesn’t improve with repetition.  The i story is worse, with the silly line about the Pope saying ‘Just Say No’, which was the slogan of a US anti-drugs campaign several decades ago. Both faithfully repeat the Vatican comment that cigarettes damage the health of people – not giraffes or parrots, then. I can guarantee that the Vatican would not complain if the quote were cut to ‘clearly damages health’.
