Two hunters from New Jersey
are out in the woods when one of them falls to the ground.
He doesn't seem to be breathing.
The other quickly takes out cell phone and calls the
emergency services. He gasps out to the operator: "I think
my friend is dead! What can I do?"
The operator, in a calm soothing voice, says: "Just take it

and catch up."
The boss is very surprised, but still not totally convinced.
Colin challenges him to name anyone else.
"The Pope," his boss replies.
"Sure!" says Colin. "My Parents are from Poland, and I've

His boss looks up and says, "I was fine until you and the
Pope came out on the balcony and the man next to me said:
"Who the hell's that on the balcony with Colin?".
