Colonel Sanders called the Pope up one day and said, “You’ve got to help me out. Chicken sales are way down. I’ll pay you $10 million to change the Lord’s Prayer to give us this day our Daily Chicken.”
The Pope said,”I can’t do that. We can’t just change the Lord’s Prayer!”
The Colonel let it go but was back begging a few days later, “Your imminence, please help! I’ll donate $50 million to the church!”
“Absolutely not!” Answered the Pope. “The Lord’s Word is not for sale!”
A month or two later the Colonel was back.” Your imminence. Please help! All you have to do is change the Lord’s Prayer to give us our Daily Chicken. It’s not that big of a deal. Can’t you help me out for a $100 Million donation to the church?
“Well,” said the Pope.” That’s too great a donation for me to turn down without speaking to my advisors. Let me speak to them and get back to you.”
When he spoke to the Cardinals, he said, “We’ve been offered a huge donation, but it’s not all good news. It’s going to cost us the Wonder Bread Account.”
