The Pope is in the driver’s seat…seriously.
After getting all of Pope Benedict’s luggage loaded into the limousine, the limo driver notices that the Pope is still standing on the curb.
“Excuse me, Your Eminence,” says the driver, “but would you please take your seat so we may leave?” “Well, to tell you the truth,” says the Pope, “they never let me drive at the Vatican, so I’d like to do the driving 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 come in 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 sirens. “Oh, dear God, I’m going to lose my license,” moans the limo driver.
The Pope pulls over and rolls down the window as the policeman approaches. The cop takes one look at him, goes back to his motorcycle, and gets on his radio.
“I need to talk to the Chief,” he says to the dispatcher. The Chief gets on the radio and the cop tells him that he’s stopped a limo going a hundred and five. “So bust him!” said the Chief.
“I don’t think we want to do that; he’s really important,” said the cop. The Chief exclaimed, “All the more reason!”
“No, I mean REALLY important!” said the cop.
The Chief then asked, “Who do you have there, the Mayor?”
Chief: ” Is it the Governor?”
Cop: “Oh, Bigger.”
“Well,” says the Chief, “Then, tell me who is it?”
Cop: “I think it’s God!”
Chief: “Now what makes you think it’s God Himself?”
Cop: “He’s got the Pope for a limo driver.”
