Subject: RE: NON IRRITATING JEWISH JOKES
The Minister , the Priest and the Rabbi were comparing notes about how they dealt with the Sunday morning "offertory" [for absolute atheists---the cash collection]. The Minister says,"I draw a six inch circle on the ground, throw the coins and notes in the air, and keep what lands in the circle for myself, giving all the remainder to the Lord". The Priest had a variation on the same idea, only when the cash fell back to the ground , he claimed all the cash OUTSIDE the circle, leaving the Lord with what stayed inside. " I do it differently" said the Rabbi, " I throw all the cash up, and what the Lord wants, he catches---the rest is mine!"
