Bill Clinton and the Pope die on the same day. In an administative foul-up, the pope gets sent to Hell and Clinton gets sent to heaven.
The pope explains to the administrative department in hell, and the error is acknowledged. The explain to the Pope that it will take 24 hours to make the switch.
The next day the Pope is called in, the administrative department at hell bids the Pope fairwell, and he heads toward heaven.
About half way up toward heaven the Pope and Clinton run into each other. The Pope apologizes that the mix up has such a bad result for Bill, and Bill responds with his usual charasmatic grace.
The conversation continues like this:
Pope: Well, I am really excited about going to heaven!
Clinton: Why is that?
Pope: All my life I have wanted to meet the Virgin Mary.
Clinton: You are a day late....
