The barber says, "Ha! Alitalia is a terrible airline, the Rome Hilton is a dump, and when you see the Pope, you'll probably be standing in back of about ten thousand people."
So the guy goes to Rome. When he comes back and the barber says, "How was it?"
"Great," he says. "Alitalia was wonderful airline. The hotel was great. And I got to meet the Pope!"
"You met the Pope?" asked the barber.
"I bent down to kiss the Pope's ring."
"And what did he say?"
"He said, 'Where did you get that crummy haircut?'"
