The Pope and Queen Elizabeth II were standing on a balcony beaming at
thousands of people in the forecourt below. The Queen says to the
Pope out of the corner of her mouth, I bet you a tenner that I can
make every English person in the crowd go wild with just a wave of
The Pope says, No way. You can't do that.
The Queen says, Watch this.
So the Queen waves her hand and every English person in the crowd
goes crazy, waving their little plastic Union Jacks on sticks and
cheering, basically going ballistic.
So the Pope is standing there going, Uh oh, what am I going to do?
I never thought she'd be able to do it.
So he thinks to himself for a minute and then he turns to her and
says, Double or nothing I can make every IRISH person in the
crowd go wild, not just now, but for the rest of the week, with just
one nod of my head.
The Queen replies, No way; it can't be done.
So the Pope headbutts her.
