President Obama met with Pope Francis for the first time this week, and the late-night comics focused on one particular aspect of their encounter: the seeds from the White House garden that the president gave the pope as a gift. It's tradition for leaders to exchange gifts with the pope when they meet, and usually it's something symbolic. However, according to one comedian, these seeds came with a warning -- ummmm, don't plant these where anyone can see them. Oh, and you may need a heat lamp. Another comedian focused on a different kind of gift for the pope. One that forces the pontiff to ask his assistant to start the popemobile every morning. Take a look at today's Punchlines to find out what that one is.
