A man is preparing to board a train

A man is preparing to board a train. when he hears that the Pope is also going to be using that mode of transportation because he apparently wanted to try something different.

“This is exciting,” the man thinks. “I’ve always been a big fan of the Pope. Perhaps I’ll be able to see him in person.”

Imagine his surprise when the Pope sits down in the seat next to him. But the gentleman was too shy to speak to the Pontiff.

Shortly after taking his seat, the Pope began a crossword puzzle.

Only one word leaps to mind. The man feels uncomfortable. “My goodness,” he thinks, “I can’t tell the Pope that. There must be another word.” He thinks for a while, then it hits him and he

says, “I think the word you’re looking for is ‘talk’.”

“Of course,” replies the Pope. “Do you have an eraser?”
