The Pope in New York

The Pope had just finished a visit to New York City and was taking a limousine to the airport. Having never driven a limo, he asked the chauffeur if he could drive for awhile. The chauffeur, a good Catholic, couldn't refuse the Pope, so he climbed into the back seat and let the Pope take the wheel.

The Pope got on the expressway and immediately accelerated to see what the limo could do. When he got to about 90 mph the Pope heard sirens and saw the flashing blue lights of the New York State police in his mirror.

The Pope pulled over and a trooper came to his window. The trooper, seeing who it was, said "just a moment please. I need to call in." The trooper called the station and asked for the chief. He told the chief, "I've got a REALLY important person pulled over and I need to know what to do."

The chief replied "It's not the Mayor, is it?" The trooper said, "No, even more important." The chief replied, "It's the Governor, is it?", the trooper replied "No, even more important." "It can't be the President!" "No, more important", said the trooper.

"Well WHO the HECK is it !", screamed the chief.

"I don't know who he is," explained the trooper. "But he's got the Pope as a chauffeur."
