    A young monk arrives at the monastery. He is assigned to helping the other
    monks in copying the old canons and laws of the church by hand.

    He notices, however, that all of the monks are copying from copies, not
    from the original manuscript. So, the new monk goes to the head abbot to
    question this, pointing out that if someone made even a small error in the
    first copy, it would never be picked up! In fact, that error would be
    continued in all of the subsequent copies.

    The head monk, says, 'We have been copying from the copies for centuries,
    but you make a good point, my son.'

    He goes down into the dark caves underneath the monastery where the
    original manuscripts are held as archives in a locked vault that hasn't
    been opened for hundreds of years. Hours go by and nobody sees the old

    So, the young monk gets worried and goes down to look for him. He sees him
    banging his head against the wall and wailing.

    "We missed the *R*

    "We missed the *R*

    "We missed the *R*

    His forehead is all bruised and he is crying uncontrollably.

    The young monk asks the old abbot, 'What's wrong, father?'

    With a choking voice, the old abbot replies,

    'The word was... CELEB** **R** **ATE** **!!!
