On a tour of Alaska, the Pope took a couple of days off to visit the
mountains for some sight seeing. He was cruising along the campground in
the Pope-mobile when there was a frantic commotion just at the edge of the
woods. A helpless Democrat, wearing sandals, shorts, a "Save the Whales"
T-shirt, and a tree hugger Hat, was struggling frantically, thrashing
around trying to free himself from the jaws of a 10 foot grizzly.
As the pope watched horrified, a group of Republican loggers came
racing up. One quickly fired a .44 magnum into the bear's chest.
The other two reached up and pulled the bleeding semiconscious Democrat
from the bear. Then using long clubs, the three loggers beat the bear
to death and hauled it to their truck.
Immediately the Pope summoned them to come over. "I give you my blessing
for your brave actions!" he told them. "I heard there was a bitter hatred
between loggers and environmental activists, but now I've seen with my
own eyes that that is not true."
As the Pope drove off, one of the loggers asked his buddies "Who was
"It was the Pope," another replied, "he's in direct contact with God
and has access to all God's wisdom."
"Well," the logger said, "he may have access to all God's wisdom, but he
sure doesn't know anything about bear hunting..... By the way, is the bait
holding up okay or do we need to go back to town and grab another one?"
