Jineteras in the Popemobile?

Pope John Paul II hadn't even reached in Havana for his historic 1998 visit and already Cubans were cracking jokes about jineteras (prostitutes) climbing into the Popemobile along the Malecon.
Cubans' sense of humor is legendary. I'm sure it helps people cope.
Cuba has a lot of top-notch comedians, from ordinary people on the streets to the professionals performing in nightclubs.
My favorite comedy group is Punto y Coma, shown above, and in this YouTube video called Me Pica Aqui (I Have an Itch Here).
