The Pope is doing a crossword puzzle at the Vatican. He turns to the Cardinal and asks, “What is a word for a woman that ends in ‘u-n-t’?”

The Cardinal says, “Aunt.”

The Pope says, “Got an eraser?”

This is a good joke to play on others. Pretend you're trying to solve a crossword puzzle- and say aloud "Postman -blank-. Any ideas?"

They'll likely say something like "Postman Pat" to which you reply- "no that doesn't fit.".

Then- if they're not completely thick- they should ask "How many letters?" and you tell 'em "A SACKFUL!"

Then they'll leave in disgust.
