Nescafe and the pope

  1. 1. The  top  marketing  director  of  Nescafe  manages  to  arrange  a  meeting  with  the  Pope  at  the  Vatican.  After  receiving  the  papal  blessing,  the  Nescafe  official  whispers,  Your  Eminence,  I  have  some  business  to  discuss.  We  at  Nescafe  have  an  offer  for  you.  Nescafe  is  prepared  to  donate  $100  million  to  the  church  if  you  change  the  Lords  Prayer  from  Give  us  this  day  our  daily  bread  to  Give  us  this  day  our  daily  coffee."  The  Pope  looks  outraged  and  thunders,  "That  is  impossible.  The  Prayer  is  the  word  of  the  Lord,  It  must  not  be  changed."  Well,"  says  the  Nescafe  man  somewhat  chastened,  "We  anticipated  your  reluctance.  For  this  reason,  and  the  importance  of  the  Lords  Prayer  to  all  Catholics,  we  will  increase  our  offer  to  $300  million.  All  we  require  is  that  you  change  the  Lords  Prayer  from  Give  us  this  day  our  daily  bread  to  Give  us  this  day  our  daily  coffee."  Again,  even  more  sternly,  the  Pope  replies,  "That,  my  son  is  impossible.  For  the  prayer  is  the  word  of  the  Lord  and  it  must  not  be  changed."  Finally,  the  Nescafe  director  says,  "Your  Holiness,  we  at  Nescafe  respect  your  adherence  to  your  faith,  we  realize  that  tradition  is  essential  to  your  beliefs,  we  fully  understand  the  importance  of  the  word  of  the  Lord........but  we  do  have  one  final  offer.  Please  discuss  it  with  your  cardinals.  We  will  donate  $500  million  to  the  great  Catholic  church  if  you  would  only  change  the  Lords  Prayer  from  Give  us  this  day  our  daily  bread  to  Give  us  this  day  our  daily  coffee.  Please,  please  consider  it."  And  he  leaves.  The  next  day  the  Pope  convenes  the  College  of  Cardinals.  "There  is  some  good  news,"  he  announces,  "and  some  bad  news  .......  The  good  news  is,  he  continues  to  a  hushed  assembly,    that  the  Church  will  get  $  500  million  to  further  its  good  works."  "And  what  is  the  bad  news,  your  Holiness?"  asks  a  Cardinal.  "Sadly"  says  the  Pope,  "It  looks  like  we  are  going  to  lose  the  Wonder  Bread  account."
