Nun
A female prostitute.

Etymology: Since the Elizabethan era, the word "nun" has been slang for a prostitute, likely due to anti-Catholic sentiment engendered by Protestant reformers outraged by the corruption of the Medieval church. (Modern reference: William Faulkner, "Requiem for a Nun"). A nunnery referred to a brothel.

"When Hamlet impugns Ophelia 'Get thee to a nunnery,' the salaciousness of the remark can only be undertood if one knows that a 'nun' was Elizabethan slang for whore and a nunnery was a whorehouse."

A virgin and/or celibate woman.
I used to be a Catholic Priest. When I was ordained, I asked the Cardinal, "Now, what kind of woman did you say I could have sex with?". I was certain he said, "Nun". But, one day, when he walked in on me fucking a nun, he kicked me out of the Church -- permanently!

nun
A female catholic clergy, named after her form of sex life.
When the priest was ordained, he asked the bishop, "What kind of woman can I have sex with?"

The Bishop said, "None".

But, when the priest actually had sex with a nun, the bishop excommunicated him!

Woman shaped like a plate of jelly, shes sweeps across the ground without a sound. Many believe they have no legs, and are simply moving my electromagnetic forces. Also great targets for mooning.
