In a tiny village lived an old maid. In spite of her old
age, she was still a virgin. She was very proud of it. She
knew her last days were getting closer, so she told the
local undertaker that she wanted the following inscription on
"Born as a virgin, lived as a virgin, died as a virgin."
Not long after, the old maid died peacefully, and the
undertaker told his men what the lady had said. The men went
to carve it in, but being the lazy no- goods they were, they
thought the inscription to be unnecessarily long.
They simply wrote: "Returned unopened."
