Four Catholic men and a Catholic woman were having coffee.
The first Catholic man tells his friends, "My son
is a priest. When he walks into a room, everyone calls him Father."
The second Catholic man chirps, "My son is a bishop. When he walks into a room people call him Your Grace."
The third Catholic gent says, "My son is a cardinal. When he enters a room everyone says Your Eminence."
The fourth Catholic man chirps, "My son is the Pope. When he walks into a room people call him Your Holiness."
Since the lone Catholic woman was sipping her coffee in silence, the four men give her a subtle, "Well ...?"
She replies, "I have a gorgeous daughter
. When she walks into a room, people say, ... Oh God
walks into the Post Office to buy stamps

The Pope: "I am the pope."
St. Peter: "Who? There's no such name in my book."
The Pope: "I'm the representative of God
St.Peter: "Does God have a representative? He didn't tell me ..."
The Pope: "But I am the leader of the Catholic Church ..."
St. Peter: "The Catholic church ... Never heard of it ... Wait, I'll check with the boss."
St. Peter walks away through Heaven's Gate to talk with God.
St. Peter: "There's a dude standing outside who claims he's your representative on earth."
God: "I don't have a representative on earth, not that I know of ... Wait, I'll ask Jesus
." (yells for Jesus)
Jesus: "Yes father, what's up?"
God and St. Peter explain the situation.
Jesus: "Wait, I'll go outside and have a little chat with that fellow."
Ten minutes pass and Jesus reenters the room laughing out loud. After a few minutes St. Peter asks Jesus why he's laughing.
Jesus: "Remember that fishing club I've started 2000 years ago? It still exists!"
