Papa Francisco

I had a very funny realisation the other day. And that is that the Spanish word for potato, la papa, happens to be the same as the word for Pope.


Everywhere we go (and I mean everywhere), we see images of Papa Francisco (Pope Francis) on billboards, churches, signs, and paintings.

imageAnd now all I can think about is the fact that they’re all calling him a potato.
