    On a tour of Texas, the Pope took a couple of days off to visit the coast
    for some sightseeing. He was cruising along the beach in the pope-mobile
    when there was a frantic commotion just off shore. A helpless man wearing
    a Green Bay Packer jersey was struggling frantically to free himself from
    the jaws of a 25-foot shark.

    As the Pope watched, horrified, a speedboat came racing up with three
    men wearing Minnesota Viking jerseys. One quickly fired a harpoon into
    the shark's side. The other two reached out and pulled the bleeding,
    semi-conscious Packer Backer from the water, Then, using long clubs,
    the three beat the shark to death and hauled it into the boat.

    Immediately the Pope shouted and summoned them to the beach. "I give you my
    blessing for your brave actions," he told them. "I heard that there was
    bitter hatred between Green Bay Packers & Vikings fans, but now I have
    seen with my own eyes that this is not true". As the Pope drove off, the
    harpooner asked his buddies "who was that"? "It was the Pope," one replied.
    "He is in direct contact with God and has access to all of God's wisdom".

    "Well," the harpooner said, "he may have access to God's wisdom, but he
    doesn't know anything about shark fishing. Is the bait holding up O.K.,
    or do we need to get another one"?
