Nietzsche Walks into the Vatican
Nietzsche: If Saint Peter holds up the Vatican, what holds up St. Peter?
The Pope: St. Peter stands on Jesus' shoulders.
Nietzsche: What what does Jesus stand on?
The Pope: God's testimony.
Nietzsche: On what is God's testimony based?
The Pope: My dear Nietzsche, it's God all the way down!
Come for the wine,
Stay for the punchline...
Nietzsche walks into a Vatican promising to delight the hierarchy of truths with a stand-up comedy routine when he's stopped by a Swiss Guard.
"What's your business with the Papa?" Asks the Guard.
"I was invited here to perform a stand-up comedy routine...
About man's relationship to God...
The Last Act
"Name kinda sticks with you, huh?"
Says Nietzsche, high-fiving the guard.
The guard checks the register, and sure enough, Nietzsche's on the list.
A couple hours later...
If you're looking for the creator of man, of time and space, and of the world, look no further.
We've finally found ourselves.
What's this? asks a Cardinal.
You're not suggesting that we are God?
Nietzsche pauses for a moment, then without skipping a beat, shouts:
"Hey, who's that guy standing behind the Creator over there?"
And everybody looked.
"Where?" they asked. "We don't see anything."
Nietzsche, continues and says:
If God is the Creator of the Universe,
How come you looked to see who was standing behind him?
I'll be here all night,
don't forget to tip your waitress...
