ZenTiger Very Important Person

I heard a story a while ago that Pope John Paul II had made a trip back to Poland a few years before his death...and bad weather forced the plane to divert to an alternative airport. The local parish quickly organised a limousine to pick him up and get him across country to the airport where his Pope Mobile waited.

Since he was miles from the usual crowds, he asked the chauffeur if he could drive for a while. The reluctant chauffeur pulled over along the roadside, climbed into the back of the limo, and the Pope took the wheel. The Pope then merged onto the highway and accelerated to over 90 mph to see what the limo could do.

Suddenly, the Pope noticed the distinctive dark blue / white striped FSO Polonez driven by the local policja speeding up behind him and signalling him to pull over.

The Policeman approached the limo, peered in through the drivers window and noticed the Pope. He said "Just a moment please, I need to call in."

The officer called in and explained to the chief of police he had a very important person pulled over for speeding. “How do I handle this, chief?” asked the policeman

“Well, how important is he?” asked the chief.

“I don’t know, sir,” replied the policeman, “but the Pope is his chauffeur.”
