The Pope just finished a tour of the East Coast and was
taking a limousine to the airport. Since he’d never driven
a limo, he asked the chauffeur if he could drive for a while.
The reluctant chauffeur pulled over along the roadside,
climbed into the back of the limo, and the Pope took the
wheel. The Pope then merged onto the highway and
accelerated to over 90 mph to see what the limo could do.
Suddenly, the Pope noticed the blue light of the State
Patrol in his side mirror, so he pulled over.
The trooper approached the limo, peered in through the
windows, then said, “Just a moment please, I need to call in.”
The trooper called in and explained to the chief that he
had a very important person pulled over for speeding.
“How do I handle this, chief?” asked the trooper.
“Is it the Governor?” questioned the chief.
“No! This guy is even more important!”
“Is it the President?” asked the chief.
“No! Even more important!”
“Well, who the heck is it?” screamed the chief.
“I don’t know, sir,” replied the trooper, “but he’s got the
Pope as his chauffeur.”
