Just a few short years after the last of the John Paul II T-shirts was incinerated, Camden market traders are facing another change of Pope that will again leave their huge stock of "I like the Pope. The Pope smokes dope" T-shirts obsolete.
The T-shirts, which feature a picture of the pontiff smoking a spliff, have been a mainstay of every T-shirt stall in this mecca for provincial day-tripping teens, and no trip to the capital was complete without a Pope/dope T-shirt...
"I've just had another 5,000 printed up. Who's going to buy them now?" fumed one irate trader. "They'll all be waiting till the next one gets chosen. That plume of white smoke might as well be my stock going up in flames. Cunts."
