Did you hear the joke about us?


Just about every major religious leader in Jerusalem got together yesterday for a press conference in which they overcame their theological differences to try to stop an upcoming gay pride festival in Jerusalem in August.

Maybe bigotry is the answer to the world's problems.

UPDATE: Thanks to Slate for the link, but, as usual, T-Muffle does the joke better.

"This is very ugly and very nasty to have these people come to Jerusalem."

I'll tell ya what's ugly and nasty - their outfits!!! Maybe some of the gays can give those old farts with their bibles stuck so far up their asses some fashion tips. Maybe a complete makeover, even.

Michelle, you are completely wrong- I want a hat like the Rev. Aris Shirvanian -the Armenian patriarch- in the middle there. Stylin'

Yeah, and the Sephardic dudes are always pimpin' the gold trim robes.

Well, I guess since you're the best looking guy at Memefirst, you could pull it off though I'm think Sterling would look pretty damn hot in the Sheik's digs and Eurof would bring down the house in the Sephardic dude's bowler hat.

Jame, I'm afraid, will have to keep his delicate skin under the brown KKK outfit. Stefan, the quiet type, would seem to fit in Chief Rabbi Yonna's getup and of course, Felix can just show up in his blue, fluffy jacket and fit right in.

Mike, are you sure this isn't a clip from a recent D&D convention?

Posted by: Jame on March 31, 2005 11:27 PM

Of course not- these guys bathe more often.

(Jame, while I appreciate being set up for a jab at Sterling, I -for once- took the high road)

How like gays to turn a question of morality into a discussion of fashion.

Posted by: Jerry on April 1, 2005 01:08 AM

Stick morality up your arse, Jerry. There's nothing immoral about being gay. Bigotry aside, it should be criminal, however, to be dressed like D&D characters in public.

Michelle, don't feed the trolls. And don't be dissin' on some fine threads.

Posted by: mike on April 1, 2005 02:08 AM

Oh my god, don't tell me you've been to one of these D&D conventions?!

Posted by: michelle on April 1, 2005 02:14 AM

I haven't cracked an (A)D&D book since high school- I just want you to tell me that when Rabbi Shlomo Amar rolls deep through the Armenian Quarter, he doesn't have guys following him humming the "Shaft" theme at all times.

Posted by: mike on April 1, 2005 02:28 AM

You mean: Who's the black private dick that's a sex machine to all the chicks? (Shaft!)???

No, I highly doubt this guy's gettin any sumpin sumpin.

Posted by: michelle on April 1, 2005 02:43 AM

Unlike the Catholic Father he can get sumpin sumpin... from the chicks, that is (hey-yo!).

Maybe Jerry has a sense of humor.
