Light Entertainment...

I just received the following little joke from my friend Dave, and it made me chuckle. Not a lot, but it's a quiet day for me news-wise...

The Holy Father and Queen Elizabeth II were standing on a balcony beaming at thousands of people in the forecourt below. The Queen says to the Pope out of the corner of her mouth "I bet you a tenner that I can make every English person in the crowd go wild with just a wave of my hand."

The Holy Father says "No way. You can't do that."

The Queen says, "Watch this".

So the Queen waves her hand, and every English person in the crowd goes crazy, waving their little plastic Union Jacks on sticks and cheering, basically going ballistic.

So the Holy Father is standing there thinking, "Uh oh, what am I going to do? I never thought she'd be able to do it."

So he thinks to himself for a minute and then he turns to her and says, "I bet you I can make every IRISH person in the crowd go wild, not just now, but for the rest of the week, with just one nod of my head."

The Queen goes "No way, it can't be done."

So the Holy Father headbutts her.

Reminds me of the story of the Queen, the Pope and Ian Paisley flying in the same aircraft.

As the plane approached Rome the Pope asked the pilot to fly low over Rome so that he could salute his people. The pilot did so and the Pope threw a handfull of holy pictures out of the door of the plane. Returning to the pilot he said "Thank you, my people will appreciate that."

Approaching London, the Queen made a similar request. As the plane flew low over London she threw out a handful of Union Jack and, returning to the pilot said "Thank you, my people will appreciate that."

As the plane approached Belfast, Ian Paisley again asked the pilot to fly low so he could salute his people. The pilot again obliged and, going to the door Ian Paisley threw the Pope out. When he returned to the pilot he too said "Thank you, my people will appreciate that!"

I know sectarianism isn't much of a problem where you are, Mac but in many places it still is, so PLEASE don't write anything to perpetuate it. I know you meant nothing by it but for those of us still trying to throw off the mud, that kind of thing doesn't do us any favours. Thanks.
