After wondering for centuries if mankind was alone in the universe, a race of aliens came to Earth. Surprisingly, they came in peace and spoke English fluently.
All of the heads of government and religious leaders wanted to speak to the aliens, so they set up a meeting with the new visitors.
When it was the pope’s turn, he asked, “Do you know about our lord and savior, Jesus Christ?”
“You mean J.C?”, responded one of the aliens. “Yeah we know Him. He’s the greatest isn’t he? He swings by every year to make sure that we are doing ok.”
Surprised, the pope followed up with “He visits every year?! It’s been over 2 millennia and we’re still waiting for His second coming!”
The alien saw that the pope had become irritated at this fact tried to offer a rational explanation, “Maybe he likes our chocolate better than yours?”
The pope scoffed, “Chocolate? What are you talking about? What does that have to do with anything?”
The alien said, “Yeah, when He first visited our planet, we gave Him a huge box of chocolates. Why? What did you guys do?”
