The Pope had a meeting in Manhattan Beach and is supposed to land at LAX but he landed in Burbank. He had an important sermon/mass to deliver in 30 minutes at American Martyrs church. He got in the taxi and said to the driver "we have to be in Manhattan Beach in thirty minutes." The driver said, "Thirty minutes are you nuts? It will be an hour and a half in Los Angeles traffic."
The Pope said, "Forget that!" and he took the wheel of the taxi. He left the Burbank airport and was driving down Hollywood Way on the wrong side of the street.
Less than a mile into the drive, a police officer pulled the Pope over and said, "Roll down your window." He saw the Pope and didn't know what to do. He called his captain and said, "I have a real problem and don't know what to do. I pulled over someone big."
"Who is it?" asked the captain.
"I don't know?" replied the officer.
"Is it the mayor?" the Captain questioned.
"No, bigger than him." said the officer.
"Is it the governor?" the captain asked.
"No, bigger than him," responded the Officer
"Is it the Bushes?" the captain asked
"No, bigger than them?"
Frustrated the captain asked "Well who is it?"
"I don't know," said the cop, "but the Pope is driving the taxi."
