In a faraway land two charming young people planned to get married. But when the day was set, disaster struck. The Church was destroyed in an earthquake.
Eight years and two children later, the young couple chanced to meet a kindly old gentleman on an aeroplane. When he learned that they still wanted to be married, the old gentleman snapped his fingers and said: ‘Pronto. I am the Pope, I can do anything I want. I will wed you here and now’.
The young couple were delighted, but not nearly as delighted as the paparazzi, who got pictures to die for. The kindly old gentleman was pleased as well. And his publicity manager was made a cardinal
Needless to say, they all lived happily ever after.
