    Pope on crosswords

    Pope on crosswords

    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

    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 takeoff, 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 'u-n-t'?"

    Only one word leapt to mind... "My goodness," thought the gentleman, "I can't
    tell the Pope that. There must be another." The gentleman thought for quite a
    while, then it hit him. Turning to the pope, the gentleman said, "I think
    you're looking for the word 'Aunt'."

    "Oh of course," said the Pope. "Do you have an eraser?"

    Well Tex~ I am a Roman Catholic, and I shall be telling it to Fr. Grant on Sunday...............and the one about the Vicar, the IRS Agent and the lawyer

    He got a radio controlled Dalek (Dr. Who TV series?) for Christmas............... somebody had messed with it, so it has a bishop's mitre, and says "excommunicate" instead of "exterminate"

    The Mother Superior of one of our local convents made the mitre (hat)

    I do hope the Good Lord has a sense of humour, or I am in big trouble
