Funny Joke: The CEO of Tyson Foods manages to arrange a meeting with the Pope at the Vatican.

The CEO of Tyson Foods manages to arrange a meeting with the Pope at the Vatican.

Upon receiving the blessing from the Pope, a hushed conversation takes place, “Your Holiness, we bring before you a proposition. Poultry giant Tyson Foods has pledged to contribute $100 million to the church if you consider modifying the Lord’s Prayer from ‘give us this day our daily bread’ to ‘give us this day our daily chicken.'”

The Pope firmly replies, “That’s unthinkable. The Prayer is sacred – it is the divine word and shall remain unchanged.”

The representative from Tyson Foods, undeterred, suggests, “We foresaw some hesitation; hence, we’re prepared to escalate our offer to $300 million. We ask just for this small adjustment in the Lord’s Prayer, advocating ‘daily chicken’ instead of ‘daily bread.'”

Yet again, the Pope asserts, “My child, that is not feasible. The prayer reflects the word of the Lord, and altering it is not an option.” The Tyson envoy, making one final push, declares,

“Most Revered, we hold the utmost respect for your devotion, but our last proposition stands at $500 million – a monumental half a billion donation to the esteemed Catholic Church. Just entertain the idea of changing ‘daily bread’ to ‘daily chicken’ in the Lord’s Prayer.”

With that, he departs.

The following day, the Pope assembles his Cardinals, “Brothers, I bring both exhilarating and challenging news.” “The exhilarating news is our Church is now $500 million richer.”

A Cardinal inquires with concern, “And what may be the challenging news, Your Holiness?”

Sighing, the Pope announces, “It appears we’ve just lost our sponsorship from Wonderbread.”
