Give Us This Day Our Daily Chicken

Papal Negotiation

After watching sales falling off for three straight months at Kentucky Fried chicken,

the Colonel

calls up the Pope

and asks for a favour.

The Pope says, "What can I do? "The Colonel says, "I need you to change the daily prayer from, 'Give us this day our daily bread' to 'Give us this day our daily chicken'. If you do it, I'll donate $10 million to the Vatican."

The Pope replies, "I am sorry. That is the Lord's Prayer and I can't change the words."

So the Colonel hangs up. After another month of dismal sales, the Colonel panics, and calls again. "Listen your Excellency. I really need your help. I'll donate $20 million if you change the words of the daily prayer from 'Give us this day our daily bread' to 'Give us this day our daily chicken.'

And the Pope responds, "It is very tempting, Colonel Sanders. The church could do a lot of good with that much money. It would help us to support many charities. But, again, I must decline. It is the Lord's Prayer, and I can't change the words." So the Colonel gives up again.

After two more months of terrible sales, the Colonel gets desperate.

"This is my final offer, your Excellency. If you change the words of the daily prayer from, 'Give us this day our daily bread' to 'Give us this day our daily chicken' I will donate $50 million to The Vatican."

The Pope replies, "Let me get back to you." So the next day, the Pope calls together all of his bishops and he says, "I have some good news and I have some bad news. The good news is that KFC is going to donate $50 million to the Vatican ."

The bishops rejoice at the news. Then one asks about the bad news.

The Pope replies, "The bad news is that we're losing the Gardenia account."

To See Fei: Good sense of humor you have.

To Bored Dad: You have a good sense of humor too.

To Kurakat: Roger Rabbit said if we don't have a sense of humor, we're better off dead. I guess different people find different things funny.

To Lao Xing Zhou: You can't possibly expect the founder of KFC, Colonel Harland Sanders, to be a skinny monkey, can you? The images would be totally incongruent.

So, the man in the photo is the founder of KFC. He looks thinner when his KFC first started, now he is fatter. Perhaps he eat to much chickens over the years. Haha...
