Saturday morning joke

The Pope took a couple of days off to visit Alaska.

He was cruising along 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" / "Bush Lied" T-shirt and a tree hugger hat, was screaming while 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's grasp. Then using long clubs, the three loggers finished off the bear and two of them threw it onto the bed of their truck while the other tenderly placed the injured Democrat in the back seat.

As they prepared to leave, 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 Republican loggers and Democratic environmental activists, but now I've seen with my own eyes that this is not true."

As the Pope drove off, one of the loggers asked his buddies "Who was that guy?"

"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 or do we need to go back to town and grab another one?"

Daniel, just saw this in the editorial section of the Albany Democrat Herald and thought it was cute.

Which one is less safe?

I love the new bumper sticker floating around: “I’d rather go quail hunting with Dick Cheney than riding around the lake with Ted Kennedy.”

Right on!!! Maybe we could get John Kerry or Teddy Kennedy or Cindy Sheehan to Alaska for a short visit. But, then, any grizzly with any sense of pride and self-worth would probably throw them back.
