In a tiny village on the Irish coast lived an old lady, a virgin and very proud of it.
Sensing that her final days were rapidly approaching, and desiring to make
sure everything was in proper order when she dies, she went to the town's
undertaker (who also happened to be the local postal clerk) to make 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'*
Not long after, the old maid died peacefully. A few days after the
funeral, as the undertaker-- postal clerk went to prepare the tombstone that

the lady had requested, it became quite apparent that the
tombstone that she had selected was much too small for the wording that she

had chosen He thought long and hard about how he could fulfill the old

maid's final request, considering the very limited space available on the

small piece of stone.
For days, he agonized over the dilemma. But 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 finally completed and duly engraved, and it
read as follows:


'RETURNED UNOPENED'
