The Popes Driver
After getting all of the Pope’s luggage loaded into the limo (and he doesn’t travel light), the driver notices that the Pope is still standing on the curb.
“Excuse me, Your Holiness,” says the driver, “Would you please take your seat so we can leave?”
“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 should happen?” protests the driver, wishing he’d never gone to work that morning.
“There might be something extra in it for you,” says the Pope.
Reluctantly, the driver gets in the back as the Pope climbs in behind the wheel. The driver quickly regrets his decision when, after exiting the airport, the Supreme Pontiff floors it, accelerating the limo to 105 mph.
“Please slow down, Your Holiness!!!” pleads the worried driver, but the Pope keeps the pedal to the metal until they hear police sirens.
“Oh, dear God, I’m gonna lose my license,” moans the driver.
The Pope pulls over and rolls down the window as the policeman approaches, but the policeman takes one look at him, goes back to his motorcycle, and gets on the radio.
“I need to talk to the Sarge,” he says to the dispatcher.
The Sarge gets on the radio and the policeman tells him that he’s stopped a limo going a hundred and five.
“So bust him,” said the Sarge.
“I don’t think we want to do that, he’s really important,” said the policeman.
Sarge exclaimed,”All the more reason!”
“No, I mean really important,” said the policeman.
The Sarge then asked, “Who ya got there, the Mayor?”
“Well,” said the Sarge,”Who is it?”
policeman: “I think it’s God!”
Sarge:”What makes you think it’s God?”
policeman:”He’s got the Pope as his limo driver!”
