      After getting all his luggage loaded in the limo, and His Holiness doesn't travel light, the the limo driver notices that the Pope is still standing on the curb.  "Hey, Mr. Pope.." says the driver, "Why have you not seated yourself in this excellent limo?"
     "Well, to tell you the truth," says the Pope, "They never let me drive at the Vatican, and I'd really like to drive."
     "That is very much against the rules!" protests the driver, wishing he'd never left Calcutta.
     "There might be something extra in it for you," says the Pope, looking skyward.
     Reluctantly, the driver gets in the back as the Pope gets in behind the wheel. He quickly regrets his decision when, after clearing the airport, the Pope accelerates the limo to 105 mph.  "Please be driving not so rapidly, Mr. Pope," pleads the worried driver, but the Pope keeps the pedal to the metal.  Then they hear the siren.
     "Oh, my God, now I am surely losing my license," moans the driver.
     The Pope pulls over and rolls down the window as the patrolman approaches, but the cop takes one look at him, goes back to his motorcycle, and gets on the radio.
     "I need to talk to the Chief," he says to the dispatch. 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 think the guy's a big shot," said the cop.
     "All the more reason."
     "No, I mean really a big shot," said the cop.
     "What'd ya got there, the Mayor?"
     "Bigger," replied the cop.

     "Well," said the Chief, "Who is it?"
     "I don't know", said the cop, "but he's got the Pope driving for him."

     George went on a vacation with his family and his mother-in-law to Jerusalem.  Sadly, during their vacation, George's Mother-in-law died.

     "No, it's not that," says George. "You see, I know of a man that was buried here in Jerusalem .  On the third day he arose from the dead.  I just can't take that chance.

Mitch, a Methodist, would sneak off to the race track. One day he was betting on the ponies, when he noticed a priest who stepped onto the track and blessed the forehead of a horse lining up for the 4th race. Lo and behold, this horse, a long shot, won the race.
Mitch watched the next race. Sure enough, the priest stepped onto the track as the 5th race horses lined up and placed his blessing on the forehead of a horse.
Mitch made a beeline for the window and placed a bet on the horse. Again, the horse the priest had blessed won the race. Mitch collected his winnings and anxiously waited to see which horse the priest bestowed his blessing on for the 6th race. The priest
showed, blessed a horse, Mitch bet on it, and it won! As the day went on, the priest continued blessing horses and they always came in first.
At the last race, the priest stepped onto the track and touched the forehead, eyes, ears and hooves of one of the horses. Mitch bet every cent he had, and watched the horse come in dead last.
Dumbfounded, Mitch made his way to the track and when he found the priest, he demanded, "What happened, Father? All day you blessed horses and they won. The last race, you blessed a horse and he lost. Now I've lost my savings!"
The priest shook his head and said, "That's the problem with you Protestants. You can't tell the difference between a simple blessing and the Last Rites.

      God is sitting in heaven when a scientist prays to Him.
     "God, we don't need you anymore. Science has finally figured out a way to create life out of nothing - in other words, we can now do what you did in the beginning."
    "Oh, is that so? Tell Me..." replies God.
     "Well," says the scientist, "we can take dirt and form it into the likeness of you and breath life into it, thus creating man."
     "Well, that's very interesting, show Me."
     So the scientist bends down to the earth and starts to mold the soil
into the shape of a man.
     "No, no, no
," interrupts God, "Get your own dirt."
