So one day an alien spaceship landed on earth one day. Just as happens in many stories about space aliens, they not only declare that they come in peace but naturally they also speak English.
All of the presidents, prime ministers and other heads of government, plus all of the world religious leaders, wanted to speak to the aliens to learn more about them and why they had come to Earth, so a meeting was arranged with the visitors.
Various heads of state and world leaders took turns to meet with the aliens and then finally it was the Pope’s turn to meet with them.
His first question to the aliens was, “Do you know about our lord and savior, Jesus Christ?”
“Do you mean J.C?”, the alien leader responded. “Oh sure, we know him, he’s the greatest isn’t he? J.C. swings by our planet every year to say hello and to make sure that we are doing ok”.
Well as you might imagine, the Pope was flabbergasted by this, learning that Jesus Christ was not only still alive, but also travelling around the galaxies.
The Pope followed up with his next question. “So Jesus visits your planet every year? It’s been over two millenia since he visited Earth and we are still waiting for his SECOND coming!”
The alien saw that the pope has become rather angry and frustrated to hear this and started trying to try and help to calm the Pope down as well as to try and understand why Jesus might want to visit their planet more than Earth.
“Maybe he likes our chocolate better than yours?”, the alien leader replied.
Well, you probably won’t be surprised to learn that the Pope didn’t respond well to this answer from the alien leader either and by now he was practically fuming.
“Chocolates? What are you talking about? What does chocolate have to do with anything?” the Pope said angrily.
The alien replied, “Well yeah, actually it does. You see, when he FIRST visited our planet we gave him this huge box of chocolates. Why? What did you guys do?”
And the rest as they say is history…
