    The top marketing director of Nescafe manages to arrange a meeting with the Pope at the Vatican.
    After receiving the papal blessing, the Nescafe official whispers, 'Your
    Eminence, I have some business to discuss. We at Nescafe have an offer foryou.
    Nescafe is prepared to donate $100 million to
    the church . if you changethe
    Lord's Prayer from 'Give us this day our daily bread' to 'Give us this day our daily coffee'."
    The Pope looks outraged and thunders, "That is impossible. The Prayer is the
    word of the Lord, It must not be changed." Well," says the Nescafe man somewhat
    chastened, "We anticipated your reluctance. For this reason, and the importance
    of the Lord's prayer to all catholics, we will increase our offer to $300
    million. All we require is that you change the Lord's Prayer from 'Give us this
    day our daily bread' to 'Give us this day our daily coffee'."
    Again, even more sternly, the Pope replies, "That, my son, is impossible.
    For the prayer is the word of the Lord and it must not be changed."
    Finally, the Nescafe director says, "Your Holiness, we at Nescafe respectyour
    adherence to your faith, we realise that tradition is essential to your beliefs,
    we fully understand the importance of the word of the Lord
    we do have one final offer. Please discuss it with your cardinals. We will
    donate $500 million to the great Catholic church if you would only change the
    Lord Prayer from 'Give us this day our daily bread' to 'Give us this day ourdaily coffee'.
    Please, please consider it." And he leaves.

    The next day the Pope convenes the College of Cardinals. "There is some
    Good news," he announces, "and some bad news .....
    good news is, he continues to a hushed assembly, ' that the Church will get $ 500 million."
    "And what is the bad news, your Holiness?" asks a Cardinal.
    "Sadly" says the Pope ,

    We would have to lose the Britannia Account ............................
