The Pope visits the UN

The Pope flies into JFK in order to speak at the UN in Manhatten.
Of course the UN sends a limo to pick him up.

The driver and the pope get to talking and the pope explains how much he enjoys driving but being the pope he doesn't get to do much of it any more because he's always being carted around in the pope-mobile.

The driver offers the pope a turn at the wheel and the pope jumps at the opportunity while the driver takes advantage by relaxing in the passenger compartment with a cigar and a cocktail, freed of the responsibility of driving the pope through NY traffic.

Well the pope gets to enjoying himself so much that he ends up speeding and getting pulled over by a motorcycle cop.

The cop approaches the limo to ask for the driver's license and registration and is dumbstruck when he sees who's driving.

Not knowing what to do he calls into the station to speak with his supervisor.

The cop tells his supervisor about pulling a speeder over but he's unsure if he should issue a ticket.

"Why not?", asks the supervisor.

"Well this guy is a pretty important person", answers the cop.

Not wanting to let the offender off, the supervisor asks, "How important?"

"Real important", responds the cop.

"How important is 'real important'?", asks the curious supervisor.

"Well let me put it to you this way", responds the cop. "You don't get any more important than this guy."

"Who the heck is it?!" , asks the incredulous supervisor.

"Well I'm not sure", replies the cop. "But whoever it is, he's got the pope driving him around in a limo."
