It is interesting how you had all the jokes to choose from and you ended this on a joke that is offensive to Catholics when you are Jewish judging by your last name. I have a ton of Jewish friends and we definitely go back and forth with jokes of all kinds. I just thought it was a little bothersome that you got such a kick out of a joke that is equivalent to a holocaust type joke when you had so many to choose from.

That was very nice.
That's also how life should be everywhere - anytime someone utters a completely sacrilegious punchline a Breakmaster Cylinder song mysteriously starts playing.
I'm so honored.

Alright, this is REALLY weird - the same thing happened to me in 1994, with two large differences: (1) the list of punch lines was written very small on a card I found in his wallet and (2) the jokes were cleaner.

The only one I can recall right now (and I know the joke):
"Don't eat them eggs"

What's the title if the stand up at the start of the show, which talks about not knowing where Tom Is From?
