... to bring you, my readers, full bore joy:
The Pope & Nancy Pelosi are on the same stage in front of a huge crowd.
The Madame Speaker & The Pope, however, have seen it all before.
To make it a little more interesting, Madame Speaker says to the Pope, "Did You know that with just one little wave of my hand I can make every Democrat in the crowd go wild?"
He doubts it, so she shows him. Sure enough, the wave elicits rapture & cheering from every democrat in the crowd. Gradually, the cheering subsides.
The Pope, not wanting to be outdone by such a level of arrogance, considers what he could do...
"That was impressive, the Pope says, "But did you know that with just one little wave of MY hand I can make many people in the crowd, & many around the world, go crazy with joy? This joy will not be a momentary display like that of your subjects, but will go deep into their hearts, & they will forever speak of this day & rejoice."
The speaker seriously doubts this, & says so. "One little wave of your hand & so many people will rejoice forever? Show me."
So the Pope slapped her.
Thank The Anchoress for that who sent it via e-mail.
