No More Arguments About Jesus

From a friend:

My Cajun friend had 3 good arguments that Jesus was a Cajun:

1. He liked to serve fish to his friends.
2. He could make his own wine.
3. And he wasn't afraid of water.

My Black friend had 3 good arguments that Jesus was Black:

1. He called everyone "brother".
2. He liked Gospel.
3. He couldn't get a fair trial.

My Jewish friend had 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Jewish:

1. He went into His Father's business.
2. He lived at home until he was 33.
3. He was sure his Mother was a virgin and his mother was sure he was God.

My Italian friend gave his 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Italian:

1. He talked with his hands.
2. He had wine with every meal.
3. He used olive oil.

My California friend also had 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was a Californian:

1. He never cut his hair.
2. He walked around barefoot all the time.
3. He started a new religion.

My Irish friend then gave his 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Irish:

1. He never got married.
2. He was always telling stories.
3. He loved green pastures.

But my women friends have the most compelling evidence of all that Jesus was a woman:

1. He fed a crowd at a moment's notice when there was no food.
2. He kept trying to get a message across to a bunch of men who just didn't get it.
3. And even when he was dead, he had to get up because there was more work to do.

You give

1. He never got married.
2. He was always telling stories.
3. He loved green pastures.

as the three reasons Jesus was Irish. In MY very Irish family (I SPEAK Irish!) , reasons #1 and #3 were given as:

1. He always hung around with a bunch of guys.
3. He lived with his mother until he was 30. (Which is a lot like reason #2 that he was Jewish, lending furtther credence to the notion that, because of such similarities, the Irish are indeed the Lost Tribe of Israel!)

Slainté to all, and Happy St Paddy's Day!!
