A Catholic priest and a rabbi were chatting one day when the conversation turned to a discussion of job descriptions and promotions.
“What do you have to look forward to in terms of being promoted?” asked the rabbi.
“Well, I’m next in line for the Monsignor’s job,” replied the priest.
“Yes, and then what?” asked the rabbi.
“Well, next I can become a bishop.”
“Yes, and then?”
“If I work real hard and do a good job as bishop, it’s possible for me to become an archbishop.””OK, then what?”
Exasperated, the priest replied, “With some luck and real hard work, maybe I can become a cardinal.”
Growing angry, the priest responded, “Well, with lots and lots of luck and some real difficult work, if I’m in the right places at the right times and play my political games just right, maybe, just maybe, I can get elected Pope.”
“Yes, and then what?”
“Good grief!” shouted the priest. “What do you expect me to become, GOD?”
“Well,” responded the rabbi, “One of our boys made it!”
