There is a story about the President of Anheiser-Busch who went over to the Vatican for a private audience with the Pope. The meeting went something like this:

“Holy Father, we are prepared to make a donation of $10 million to the church if you would simply replace ‘Give us this day our daily bread’ with

’Give us this day our daily beer.’”

“I’m afraid, that’s not possible, my son.”

“Could you do it for a bigger contribution, say $25 million dollars?”

“I’m afraid that’s not possible, my son.”

“Holy Father, here is my final offer. Change “bread” to “beer:” and I will write you a cheque right now for $100 million dollars.”

The Pope picks up the phone and says: “Cardinal Mancini, how firm is our contract with Pilsbury?”
