image for Yogi Berra and the Pope Chat on Twitter Yogi had the Pope in the palm of his hand.

Breaking News Two of the world's most famous men have just engaged in a Twitter chat. The Spoof is pleased to bring you the text.

Pope: Yo, Yogi. Bless you, my son.

Yogi: Grazie, Holy Father, but I didn't sneeze. Finally, we can chat. Hard 2 get a conversation going around here. Everybody's talking 2 much.

Pope: Si, si, I know what you mean. What are you doing today, Yogi?

Yogi: Packing my shopping bags for a trip. I'm going away for a few days tomorrow.

Pope: Um, shopping bags. Why shopping bags?

Yogi: Shopping bags are good enough. Why buy good luggage? You only use it when you travel!

Pope: Just don't get lost. Make sure you get good directions before you leave.

Yogi: Righto, I will. You got to be very careful if you don't know where you're going, because you might not get there.

Pope: Good point. Hope you have a good trip, Yogi. Go with God.

Yogi: No can do. You see, I'm going with Carmen. Grazie anyway. Oops, Carmen is calling me 4 dinner. What are you having 4 dinner, Holy Father?

Pope: Not sure. The nun who used to cook for me quit. She said the Vatican was being mean to her. I guess I'll order myself a pizza.

Yogi: If you're really hungry, Holy Father, tell them to cut it into 8 slices, not 6. My last words 4 today? The future ain't what it used to be.

Pope: Whatever. Ciao, Yogi.

The Pope's post-chat comment to an assistant: "Mamma mia! What a birdbrain. if he tweets again, tweet him back and tell him I'm saying my prayers."
