After watching sales fall for three straight months at Kentucky Fried Chicken, the Colonel calls up the Pope and asks for a favor. The Pope says, “What can I do?” The Colonel says, “I need you to change the daily prayer from, ‘Give us this day our daily bread,’ to ‘Give us this day our daily chicken.’ If you do it, I’ll donate $10 million to the Vatican.” The Pope replies, “I am sorry. That is the Lord’s Prayer and I cannot change the words.” So the Colonel hangs up. After another month of dismal sales, the Colonel panics, and calls again. “Listen, your Holiness. I really need your help. I’ll give you $50 million if you change the words of the daily prayer from ‘Give us this day our daily bread’ to ‘Give us this day our daily chicken.’” And the Pope responds, “It is very tempting, Colonel Sanders. The church could do a lot of good with that much money. It would help us support many charities. But, again, I must decline. It is the Lord’s Prayer, and I can’t change the words.” So the Colonel hangs up again. But after two more months of terrible sales the Colonel is really desperate, so he calls the Pope again. “This is my final offer, your Holiness. If you change the words of the daily prayer from, ‘Give us this day our daily bread’ to ‘Give us this day our daily chicken,’ I will donate $100 million to the Vatican.” The Pope replies, “Let me get back to you.” The next day, the Pope calls together all of his cardinals and he says, “I have some good news and I have some bad news. The good news is that KFC is going to donate $100 million to the Vatican.” The cardinals rejoice at the news. Then one asks about the bad news. The Pope replies, “The bad news is that we lost the Wonder Bread account.”
