It’s hard to believe I know, but there was a time when the Seven Dwarves got to meet The Pope. Amazing isn’t it, Disney legends meeting a Catholic legend!
Our story begins with six of the seven dwarfs sitting around the house one day, when Sleepy came rushing in and said, “Guess what guys, I’ve won a trip to see the Pope in Rome!”
Everyone got all excited and chanted, “We finally get to ask him, we finally get to ask him”.
So they booked flights to Rome, made their way from the airport to a hotel where they stayed the night and prepared for their visit the following day with the Pope.
The next day, the seven dwarves got up early, grabbed a bite of breakfast and took a cab ride to Vatican City, where a short time after they found themselves standing in front of the Pope.
Dopey was standing out in front of the other six dwarves, who all started pushing him forward and saying, “Go on, Dopey, ask him, ask him!”
The Pope looked at Dopey and asked him, “Do you have a question to ask me, young man?”
Dopey looked up at the Pope shyly and said, “Well, yes Your Holiness, there is something I would like to ask”.
The Pope told him to go ahead and ask his question.
Dopey gave a little cough, took a deep breath and asked, “Well er, do er, do they have Nuns in Alaska?”
The Pope gave a little laugh and replied, “Well, yes, I’m sure we have Nuns in Alaska”.
The other dwarves all kept nudging Dopey and chanting, “Ask him the rest, Dopey, ask him the rest!”
The Pope asked Dopey if there was more to his question, and Dopey continued.
“Well, uh, do they have, uh, black Nuns in Alaska?”
The Pope replied, “Well, my son, I believe there may be a few black Nnuns in Alaska, yes”.
The other dwarves were still not satisfied and kept saying, “Ask him the last part, Dopey, ask him the last part!”
The Pope asked Dopey, “Is there still more to your question?”
Dopey replied with a blush, “Well, er, yeah er, are there, er, are there any midget black Nuns in Alaska?”
The Pope, who was truly startled by this new question, replied, “Well, no, my son, I really don’t think there are any midget black Nuns in Alaska”.
On hearing this, Dopey turned all kinds of colors and the other dwarves all started laughing and yelling, “Dopey screwed a penguin, Dopey screwed a penguin!”
