Frustrated by years of violent religious conflict, the leaders of the world’s three great religions decided to resolve their differences by holding a golf tournament. Each party would send one of their holy men to represent them in the tournament.
Hoping to gain an advantage, the Pope called Jack Nicklaus and asked him to play.
“But I’m not a priest,” Nicklaus said.
“Not a problem,” said the Pope. “I’ll make you a Cardinal.”
A few weeks later, Cardinal Nicklaus made a phone call to the Vatican. “Your holiness,” he said. “I have some good news and some bad news. The good news is that I beat Ayatollah Trevino. The bad news is that I lost to Rabbi Woods.”
