A Jewish Rabbi and a Catholic Priest…

A Jewish Rabbi and a Catholic Priest met at the town’s annual 4th of July picnic. Old friends, they began their usual banter.

“This baked ham is really delicious,” the priest teased the rabbi. “You really ought to try it. I know it’s against your religion, but I can’t understand why such a wonderful food should be forbidden! You don’t know what you’re missing. You just haven’t lived until you’ve tried Mrs. Hall’s prized Virginia Baked Ham. Tell me, Rabbi, when are you going to break down and try it?”

The rabbi looked at the priest with a big grin, and said, “At your wedding.”

  1. I’ve known a variation on this for years.

    The priest so insists on the rabbi eating ham, that the rabbi finally decides that it might be a blessing, an act of charity, to try the ham.

    He takes a bite, and the priest seems to loose interest.

    “By the way, Father,” the rabbi says, “how is your wife?”

    “My wife? Now, you know that my religion does not permit me to marry.”

    “Oh, Father,” the rabbi replies, “you really should try it. It beats the heck out of eating ham.”

  2. Great humor. A good lesson in sharing this life with those who do not see things as we do, while showing that we still should like each other.
    GOD made this life for ALL HIS children; regardless what our small minds conjure up.
