Pope Benedict XVI and Hillary Rodham Clinton 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 senator 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 and 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. But did
you know that with just one little wave of MY hand I can make EVERY
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 senator seriously doubts this, and says so. "One little
wave of your hand and all people will rejoice forever? Show me."
So Pope Benedict slapped her.
