The Pope met with the Cardinals
to discuss a proposal from Shimon Peres, leader of the Jewish nation.
"Your holiness," said
one of the Cardinals, "Mr. Peres wants to determine whether Jews or Catholics
are superior by challenging you to a golf match."
The Pope was greatly disturbed
as he had never held a golf club in his life.
"Not to worry," said the
Cardinal, "We'll call America and talk to Jack Nicklaus.
We'll make him a Cardinal,
he can play Shimon Peres....we can't lose!"
Everyone agreed it was
a good idea. The call was made and, of course, Jack was honoured and agreed
to play. The day after the match, Nicklaus reported to the Vatican to inform
the Pope of his success in the match.
"I came in second, your
Holiness," said Nicklaus.
"Second!?" exclaimed the
surprised Pope. "You came in second to Shimon Peres!!??"
"No," said Nicklaus, "second
to Rabbi Palmer."
