Tis football season…and since my dad is a Packers fan and my mom is a Vikings fan…I’m entitled to tell this joke
On a tour of the US, the Pope went sightseeing in Florida. He was cruising along the beach when there was a frantic commotion just off shore. A helpless man wearing a Green Bay Packers jersey was struggling frantically to free himself from the jaws of a 25-foot shark.
As the Pope watched, a speedboat raced up with three men wearing Minnesota Vikings jerseys. One quickly fired a harpoon into the shark’s side. The other two reached out and pulled the bleeding, semi-conscious Packers Backer from the water, Then, using long clubs, the three beat the shark to death and hauled it into the boat.
Immediately the Pope summoned them to the beach. “I give you my blessing for your brave actions,” he told them. “I heard that there was bitter hatred between Packers & Vikings fans, but now I have seen with my own eyes that this is not true.”
As the Pope drove off, the harpooner asked his buddies, “Who was that”?
“It was the Pope,” one replied. “He is in direct contact with God and has access to all of God’s wisdom.”
“Well,” the harpooner said, “he may have access to God’s wisdom, but he doesn’t know anything about shark fishing. Is the bait holding up okay, or do we need to get another one?”
