    Mary Dooley, a spinster in the village, was dying, so she called Patrick O'Fagan, the local post-master, who also doubled as the undertaker.

    "Patrick," she said,"Oi've lived a long virtuous life, and I want it to be noted on my tombstone."

    "That you have, Mary, that you have. How can I help."

    "I want my tombstone engraved: `Born a virgin, Lived a virgin, Died a virgin.'"

    Mary duly died, but her estate wasn't very large, and tombstones and engraving are very expensive.

    Patrick gave it much thought, and finally had her tombstone engraved:

    "Returned Unopened."
