His Way Down
President Clinton and the Pope died on the same day, and due to an administration foul up, Clinton was sent to heaven and the Pope to hell.
The Pope explained the situation to the Devil. He checked out all of the paperwork, called the Pearly Gates admitting office, and the error was acknowledged. The Pope was told, however, that it would take about 24 hours to fix the problem.
The next day the Pope was called in, the Devil said his good-bye, and he began his journey to heaven. Along the way, he met Clinton, who was on his way down. They stopped to chat.
The Pope said, "Sorry about the mixup. By the time you get to hell, it's really too late to save any souls."
Clinton replied, "No problem. I'm sure I'll be with more familiar company down below, anyway."
The Pope continued, "Well, I'm really excited about going to heaven."
"Why's that?" Clinton asked.
"All my life I've wanted to meet the Virgin Mary," the Pope replied.
"Oh," said Clinton. "I'm afraid you're a day late."
