Old Irish Lady Joke

     Mondays suck and we here at L@L2 want to help do our part to make the start of your workweek more tolerable. The way we do this is by offering your our Joke Of The Week. Today's joke is below for you to enjoy and remember, you may have to work but don't let the man get you down. He feeds off of your suffering.

In a tiny village in Ireland lived an old lady, a virgin and very proud of it. Sensing that her final days were approaching she went to the village’s only undertaker who also just happened to be the local postal clerk to make the proper “final” arrangements. As a last wish, she informed the undertaker that she wanted the following inscription engraved on her tombstone: "Born a Virgin, Lived as a Virgin, Died a Virgin" and of course it had to be in Gaelic. Not long after her meeting with the undertaker the old maid died peacefully. A few days after the funeral, as the undertaker went to engrave the tombstone she had bought he discovered it was far too small for the wording she had chosen. He thought long and hard about how he could fulfill the old maid’s final request in the very limited space available on the small piece of stone. Finally his experience as a postal worker allowed him to come up with what he thought was the appropriate solution to the problem. The virgin's tombstone was completed and it read as follows: "Ar ais gan oscailt"….which in Gaelic translates to…. "Returned Unopened"
