meets the Pope
A slap on the butt for British royalty.
The Pope and the Queen of England are on the same stage
in front of a huge crowd. Her Majesty and His Holiness,
however, have seen it all before, so to make it a little
more interesting, the Queen says to the Pope, Did
you know that with just one little wave of my hand I can
make every English person in the crowd go wild?
He doubts it, so she shows him. Sure enough, the royal-gloved
wave elicits rapture and cheering from every Englishman
in the crowd. Gradually, the cheering subsides. The Pope,
not wanting to be out done by someone wearing a worse frock
and hat than he, considers what he could do. Your
Majesty, that was impressive. But did you known that with
just one little wave of MY hand I can make every Irish person
in the crowd go crazy with joy? This joy will not be a momentary
display like that of your subjects, but will go deep into
their hearts, and they will forever speak of this day and
rejoice. The Queen seriously doubts this, and says
so - One little wave of your hand and all Irish people
will rejoice forever? Show me.
So the Pope slapped Good Queen Betty on the butt.
