The CEO of Purdue Chicken met the Pope

The CEO of Purdue Chicken manages to arrange a meeting with the Pope at the Vatican. After receiving the Papal blessing, he whispers,"Your eminence, we have an offer for you. Purdue is prepared to donate $100 million dollars to the church if you change the Lord's Prayer from 'give us this day our daily bread' to, 'give us this day our daily chicken.'"The Pope responds, "That is impossible. The Prayer is the word of the Lord. It must not be changed.

"The Purdue guy says, "Your Holiness, we at Purdue respect your adherence to your faith, but we will donate $500 million dollars - that's half a billion dollars - to the great Catholic church if you would only change the Lord's Prayer from 'give us this day our daily bread' to 'give us this day our daily chicken. “Please consider it." And then he leaves.

The next day the Pope convenes the College of Cardinals. "There is some good news," he announces, "and some bad news.""The good news is that the Church will very soon come into a $500 million dollar donation.""And the bad news, your Eminence?" asks a Cardinal.

"We'll be losing the Pillsbury Account."

Thanks Ralph
