An account representative from Tyson Foods arranged to visit the Pope. After receiving the papal blessing, he whispered, "Your Holiness, we have a deal for you. If you'll change The Lord's Prayer from 'give us this day our daily bread' to 'give us this day our daily chicken,' we'll donate a million dollars to the church."
"Impossible," replied the Pope. "That prayer is the word of God, it can never be changed."
"Okay," said the Tyson rep, "one billion dollars to the church if you'll change the Lord's Prayer from 'give us this day our daily bread' to 'give us this day our daily chicken.'"
"I told you," said the Pope, "The Lord's Prayer is inviolate, no one can alter it.
"Okay, final offer," said the rep. "Five billion dollars if you'll change the Lord's Prayer to 'give us this day our daily chicken.'"
The following day, the Pope met with the College of Cardinals. "Gentleman," he stated, "I have some goods news and some bad news. The good news is, the Church has come into five billion dollars. The bad news is, we're losing the Wonder Bread account."
