Rochester, Start Up The Maxwell…
After examining a tattered shred of parchment that mentioned that Jesus said he was married, the scientists were further shocked when they found that his exact words “My Wife” were preceded by the word “Take” and then followed by the word “Please!”.
Many years A.D., some of Christ’s direct descendants apparently inherited these same genetic traits and became what we now often refer to as Jewish comedians, including a few who are still telling that same joke two thousand years later.
There are far too many other Jewish comedians (some dead, some alive, some with a career that’s either dead or alive, depending on who you ask) to list on something as small as the internet, so please just consider this to be a sampler chosen at random from the past century or so. Feel free to recommend others in the comments section if you think I’ve missed someone who really needs to be added even if it means bumping off someone else (off the list, that is).
By the way, that rumor that’s going around that the true last temptation of Christ was to pee on the heads of the roman soldiers below him has never been either confirmed or denied, but if he actually could walk on or turn water into wine……
