Through The Drinking Glass

“I hear Mr. T’s Jewish now.”
“Really? When did that happen?”
“Not sure. Still, rather him than me. It’s not just a matter of saying ‘I’m Jewish’, is it?”
“You reckon?”
“Well, there’s certain rituals to be performed. I understand there may be some snipping involved.”
“Ah, you’ve overlooked one thing there.”
“What’s that?”
“If you’re a rabbi and Mr. T comes up to you and says ‘I’m Jewish’, are you going to be the one to tell him that there’s some snipping involved? Are you going to be the one to break out the ceremonial scissors and tell Mr. T to get his kecks off?”
“Well… well no.”
“Exactly. No sensible rabbi would. If Mr. T says he’s Jewish, then that’s good enough for me, and it’s good enough for any rabbi.”
“Fair point. More beer?”
