The Pope on a Flight
For those of you Convent educated creatures… ..
A businessman is getting on a flight when he hears from another passenger that the Pope is going to be on the flight.
“WOW, great!” he thinks, being a devout Christian, “What a good place to be today.”
Just before the aircraft doors are closed the Pope enters the plane and sits next to him.
I am surely blessed the man thinks. Here I am, a good Catholic on a flight with the Pope sitting next to me.
The man looks sideways and sees the Pope reaching into his bag to take out a crossword book. Marvelous, he thinks, not only am I blessed with the Pope next to me but he does crosswords and so do I. He notices that the Pope is working his way through the puzzle, and that the Pope is tapping his pencil, thinking.
The Pope turns to him and says, “I usually don’t talk to anyone on flights, but I wonder if you can help me?”
“Anything your Eminence.. What is it?”
“Do you know a four letter word that ends in ‘u-n-t’ that means something associated with women?”
The man feels uncomfortable. He thinks and thinks. Finally he says, “The only word I can think of is aunt.”
The Pope looks at him and asks, “Do you have an eraser?”
