One day, the Pope, Billy Graham, and President Benson (current president of
the Mormon Church) were out fishing on a lake.  The Pope says, "Oh dear!
I forgot the can of worms."  So he climbs out of the boat and walks on the
water to the pier, gets the can of worms, walks on the water back to the
boat and gets in the boat.  President Benson says, "I forgot the fishing
tackle."  So he gets out of the boat, walks on the water to the pier, gets
the tackle, and walks back.  Billy Graham, not to be outdone, says, "I
forgot the pop."  So he gets out of the boat and promply sinks into the
water.  The Pope turns to President Benson and says, "Should we show him
where the rocks are?"  And President Benson says, "What rocks?"


     One day at the Vatican, a papal aide rushes in to the Pope's office and
says, "Your Holiness!  Good news and bad news!"  The Pope replies, "What's
the good news?"  "Jesus Christ is on the phone."  "That's great news, what
can be so bad?"  "He's calling from Utah."


     A mormon bishop is out fishing when he comes across a big mean grizzly
bear.  He starts to run.  After several hundred feet it's clear the bear is
closing fast.  So the bishop falls to his knees and prays.  Atleast thirty
seconds passed so he opens his eyes to find the bear also on his knees right
behind the bishop.  The bishop asks the bear "Are you mormon?"  The bear
looked surprised, "No, I'm just saying grace."


President Benson (president of the Mormon Church) was visiting the Pope at
the Vatican.  While there, he asked the Pope if he could use his telephone
to make a call to Heaven.  The Pope said that he could.  After President
Benson was through, he went to the Pope and said, "I talked for six minutes.
How much do I owe you for the long distance call?"  The Pope named a price
and President Benson paid.  A few months later, the Pope was visiting
President Benson in Salt Lake City.  And while there, needed to make a call
to Heaven.  So he got permission from President Benson to use his phone.
After the call, the Pope said to President Benson, "I talked for eight
minutes.  How much do I owe you for the call?"  President Benson said,
"Nothing.  It's a local call."
