A man is preparing to board a plane when he hears that the pope is on the same flight.
"This is exciting,"he thinks.
"Perhaps I�ll get to see him in person."
Amazingly, the pope sits down next to him for the flight, but the man is too shy to speak to the pontiff.
Shortly after takeoff, the pope begins a crossword puzzle. "This is fantastic," the man thinks. "Maybe he�ll ask me for help."
Almost immediately, the pope turns to the man and says, "Do you know a four-letter word referring to a woman ending in �unt�?"
Only one word leaps to mind. "Oh, gosh," the man thinks. "I can�t tell the pope that. There must be another word."
The gentleman thinks for a while, then it hits him.
Turning to the pope, he says, "I think the word you�re looking for is �aunt.�"
"Of course," says the pope. "Do you have an eraser?"
