Bernard. Sure there are. re-read the first one. it closes with, "Jody Gibson, formerly Joseph Paul Katzberg. No, I'm not jewish. My father was and my kid brother and Mom (step mother) are. My biological mother was Josephine Puzelli." (long deceased)
Hey, Ebbie, I can't think of anything more rude than someone insulting another in a language they think will not be understood. (it's also the stupidest) It can happen in any language, and deserves nothing better than to be answere in the language that the other thought you wouldn 't understand. Case in point. During the 1976 "Tall Ships" thing in Newport, my tall,strikingly beautiful wife, Donna, who's family (she says) has been in Newport, "since the earth cooled", was walking past some Mexican sailors. One of them made some comments,.in Spanish, that were extremely insulting. Donna turned, and with a "Northern Mexican Peon" accent said, "Tus Nalgas" a very "North Mexican" phrase which means, "the cheeks of your ass", flipped the hem of her skirt at him, elevated her nose about 25 degrees and walked on. The other Mexican sailors laughed uproriously at their "insulting friend". One, rose to his feet, aspplauded Donna and shouted, "Bueno, Bueno".
BACK TO THE FUNNY STUFF
Here's some support for "Little Hawk's point of view"
A Jewish Tailor (My grandfather) due to a clerical error, was sent down to Hell. He decided to accept his fate and proceeded to make himself usefull. He made a beautiful new suit for the devil, mended a lot of burned up clothing, and very soon became quite popular among the inmates.
God, like any good leader, was reviewing some of the paperwork and other records, of his subordinatess,. when He chanced to come upon My Grandfather's file. Of course, He knew that a terrible injustice had been committed, and, telephoned the devil.
"You got a guy named Isaac Katzberg down there?" He asked.
"Yeah, so what?" asked the devil.
s"Well, there's been a terrible mistake, he doesn't belong down there, send him up immediately".
"No", said the devil, "I've grown quite fond of the guy, I've seen to it that he isn't suffering or enduring any hardships, but I'm going to keep him. It's refreshing to have someone around who's led a good life".
"I insist" said God.
"Tough", said the devil
"I'll sue" said The Lord.
"Oh yeah?", came the reply, "Where you gonna find a lawyer?"
