New from BorgCo, made from plastic or papier-mache and ranging from life size down to about 100mm tall, these papal effigies are accurate depictions of the pontiff of your choice.

Just get a couple of the Cardinals lurking in the shadows to pull the strings, and the low-yield pyrotechnic gas generator (basically an airbag cartridge) fires, blowing off the mitre and discharging a welter of streamers, mottoes, and biretta-shaped paper hats.

       Of course, nowhere near as powerful as Britain's great pre-War Joke, used by Chamberlain at Munich …
