Okay.. the preacher who presided over my grandmother's internment yesterday had a good one to share while we were all returning to our cars. I thought you all might enjoy this one - I know I appreciated the mental break at the time!
Pope dies and goes to heaven.
Saint Peter greets him at the Pearly Gates and asks, "Welcome home, Pope. What would you like to do first?"
Pope says, "I'd like to see the original scriptures."
Saint Peter nods and leads him to Heaven's library. He leaves the Pope and walks outside.
A moment later there is a blood curdling scream coming from the library. Saint Peter races back, finds the Pope holding an ancient text with a shocked look on his face.
"What is the matter, Pope?!"
"CELEBRATE! It says CELEBRATE... not celibate!"
