A legal representative of KFC manages to arrange a meeting with the Pope.

After receiving the papal blessing, he whispers, “Your eminence, we have an offer for you. KFC is prepared to donate $100 million dollars to the church if you change the Lord’s Prayer from *give us this day our daily bread* to *give us this day our daily* **chicken**”. The Pope responds, “That is impossible. The Prayer is the word of the Lord – it must not be changed.” “Well,” says the KFC man, “we anticipated your reluctance. For this reason, we will increase our offer to $300 million dollars. All we require is that you change the Lord’s Prayer from *give us this day our daily bread* to *give us this day our daily* **chicken**”. Again, the Pope replies, “That, my son, is impossible. For the prayer is the word of the Lord and it must not be changed.” Finally, the KFC guy says, “Your Holiness, we at KFC respect your adherence to your faith, but we do have one final offer. We will donate $500 million dollars – that’s half a billion dollars – to the great Catholic Church if you would only change the Lord’s Prayer from *give us this day our daily bread* to *give us this day our daily* **chicken**. Please consider it.” And he leaves. The next day the Pope convenes the College of Cardinals. “There is some good news,” he announces, “and some bad news.” “The good news is that the Church has come into $500 million dollars.” “And the bad news, your eminence?” asks a Cardinal. “We’re losing the Wonderbread account.”

The transfer needs to be done through Papal

You’d think a cardinal would know that you call a cardinal “Your Eminence” and the Pope “Your Holiness.”

Probably would have been better: “Someone has to tell Wonderbread.” Still, really enjoyed the joke.

Btw in China it’s “give us this day our daily rice”. And here is a similar Russian joke: ​ Coca-Cola call Putin and they say: “We have an offer for you. We will give you 100 million dollars to change the Russian flag back to red color as it was in the Soviet days, but instead of the sickle and hammer put a Coca Cola logo”. “Impossible”, says Putin. “OK, how about 300 million”? “No”. “500 million”? “I’ll consider it”, says Putin. He then calls Medvedev: “Hey, listen, how much is Aquafresh paying us”?
