A man goes to see the pope.
“Your Holiness. I work for KFC, and we’ll offer you ten million dollars to change the reading of the Lord’s Prayer from ‘Give us this day our daily bread’ to ‘Give us this day our daily chicken.'”
The pope is aghast! “I can’t just go changing God’s word for money!”
The man comes back the next day: “Fifty million! Now, think of all the good the church could do with all that money, Your Holiness!” The pope in unimpressed: “Look, I told you. I just can’t do it. I’m sorry.”
The guy is back a week later: “Final offer- $500 million. Take it or leave it.”
The next day, the pope calls all the leaders of the church together: “Boys, I have good news, and I have bad news. The good news is we’ve raised $500 million dollars for Catholic Charities.”
The room erupts! Everybody is so happy!
The pope waits for the room to settle down. Then- “And now for the bad news: We lost the Wonder Bread account.”
