just wanna get your feelers on something guys.
We all recall "the yadda yadda" in which jerry shows disdain toward Tim Whatley for seemingly turning to judeaism simply for the jokes, suggesting to me that jerry is at one with his faith, yet every time a jewish reference is made in the show, it is HE who is making cracks at the religion, whad ya think?

Jerry said Tim Whatley didn't offend him as a Jew, but as a comedian - Jerry was always a Jew so he can make jokes about them, Tim converted to Judeaism just to make jokes, and that is what Jerry didn't like.

If Jerry was more offended as a comedian than a Jewish person, this would leave me to believe he's NOT very close to his faith (whatever that means), or at least not "devout".

Hey, have you guys heard the one about the Pope and Raquel Welch in a lifeboat? They're out on the ocean, and yada, yada, yada... she says, "Those aren't buoys!"

Hahaha -- I always loved that the priest started laughing at that joke. Do you know what the full joke is, though? That always irked me...

There is no full joke... you're just supposed to imagine that the Pope had somehow mistaken her "boobys" for "bouys."

I guarantee you Moses was a picker. You wander through the desert for 40 years with that dry air. You telling me you're not going to have occasion to clean house a little bit?
