The Pope is on a visit to the US


The Pope is on a visit to the US, riding in the back of a limo. The driver asks him if he needs anything.

“Well, to tell you the truth,” says the Pope, “they never let me drive at the Vatican, and I’d really like to drive today.”

“I’m sorry but I cannot let you do that. I’d lose my job! And what if something happens?” protests the driver.

“Who’s going to tell?” the Pope smiled. So the Pope sat at the wheel, while his driver got in the back.

They were speeding down the road, when a policeman pulled them over. He called headquarters reporting a speeding limo.

The chief instructs, “Well what are you doing, just pull him over!” The policeman responds, “I’m afraid I can’t do that, sir. There is someone very important in this car”

The chief asked: “Who is in the limo, the mayor?”

The policeman told him: “No, someone more important than the mayor”.

Then the chief asked: “Did you pull over a congressman again?”

The policeman answered: “No, someone more important than a congressman”.

The chief finally asked: “Is it the President?” The policeman answered: “No, someone even more important than the President”.

This made the chief very angry and he demanded: “Now who could be important than the President?!”

The policeman responded, “The hell if I know, but the Pope’s driving!”
