The Pope Goes to Heaven...
An enormously popular and beloved Pope, after a long reign, dies and, naturally, goes to heaven. He's met by the reception committee, and after a whirlwind tour he is told that he can enjoy any of the myriad of recreations available.
The pope, having always loved the bible, decides that he wants to read all of the original records of God's communications with humanity before they were received and written down by human beings. He spends the next eon or so learning languages.
After becoming a linguistic master, he sits down in the library and begins to pour over every version of the Bible, working back from the most recent "Easy Reading" to the original records of divine communication.
All of a sudden there is a scream in the library that echos throughout the gold-paved streets of the heavenly city. The angels come running in only to find the Pope huddled in his chair, crying to himself and muttering, "An 'R'! The scribes left out the 'R'."
A particularly concerned Angel takes him aside, offering comfort, asks him what the problem is and what does he mean. After collecting his wits, the Pope sobs again, "It's the letter 'R'. They left out the 'R'. The word was supposed to be CELEBRATE!"
