The Golf Match

    	The Pope met with the Cardinals to discuss a proposal from Shimon
 	Peres, leader of the Jewish nation.

    	"Your holiness," said one of the Cardinals, "Mr. Peres wants to
 	determine whether Jews or Catholics are superior by challenging 
	you to a golf match."  The Pope was greatly disturbed, as he had 
	never held a golf club in his life. "Not to worry," said the 
	Cardinal, "We'll call America and talk to Jack Nicklaus.  We'll 
	make him a Cardinal, he can play Shimon Peres....we can't lose!"  
	Everyone agreed it was a good idea.  The call was made and, of 
	course, Jack was honored and agreed to play.

    	The day after the match, "Cardinal Nicklaus" reported to the
 	Vatican to inform the Pope of the results of the match.  "I came in
	second, your holiness," said Nicklaus.

    	"Second!?" exclaimed the surprised Pope. "You came in second to
 	Shimon Peres!!??"

    	"No," Nicklaus said, "second to Rabbi Tiger Woods."
