A shy gentleman was preparing to board a plane when he heard that the
Pope was on the same flight. "This is exciting," thought the
gentleman. "I've always been a big fan of the Pope. Perhaps I'll be
able to see him in person." Imagine his surprise when the Pope sat
down in the seat next to him for the flight. Still, the gentleman was
too shy to speak to the Pontiff. Shortly after take-off, the Pope
began a crossword puzzle. "This is fantastic," thought the gentleman.
"I'm really good at crosswords. Perhaps, if the Pope gets stuck,
he'll ask me for assistance." Almost immediately, the Pope turned to
the gentleman and said, "Excuse me, but do you know a four letter
word referring to a woman that ends in 'unt'?" Only one word leapt
to mind ... "My goodness," thought the gentleman, "I can't tell the
Pope that. There must be another word." The gentleman thought for
quite a while, then it hit him. Turning to the pope, the gentleman
said, "I think the word you're looking for is 'aunt'." "Of course,"
said the Pope. "Do you have an eraser?"
