Pope in New YorkThe Pope was driving around New York City in a limo on one of his papal visits. He was fascinated by the amount of hustle and bustle in the city. He got it in his mind that he wanted to drive the limo...
Pope: Driver, could you please pull over? I want to drive.
Driver: O.K. your holiness...whatever you say.
So the driver pulls over and the Pope starts to drive. He got the hang of it before long, and decided to put the pedal to the metal. A few minutes later, a police officer signals the limo to pull over...
Officer: Licence and reg...(sees that it's the Pope). Oh, well.... um.... let me radio headquarters...um...I'll be right back.
The officer radios headquarters....
Officer: Chief, I just pulled over a very important man. What should I do?
Chief: Well, how important is he? Is he a Governor?
Officer: No, he's more important than that.
Chief: Is he a Congressman?
Officer: Nope...more important than a Congressman.
Chief: Surely he can't be more important than the president!
Chief: Good God!! Who did you pull over???
Officer: I dunno who he is, but he's got the Pope for a chauffeur!!!
