Today's groaner has a theme that is both New York and religion (but not sacrilegious, I hope), should help you start the week with a good healthy grooooaaannnn!!!!!!!! Enjoy!!!!!
Jesus was wandering about Jerusalem when he decided that he really needed a new robe. After looking around, he saw a sign for "Finkelstein, the Tailor".
He went in and Finkelstein prepared a new robe for him, which was a perfect fit. When he asked how much he owed, Finkelstein brushed him off and said,
"For the Son of God? No, no, no!!!!! There's no charge. However, may I ask a small favor? Maybe whenever you give a sermon you could just mention a little something about how your nice new robe was made by Finkelstein the Tailor".
Jesus readily agreed and, as promised, plugged Finkelstein's robes every time he preached. Some months later, Jesus was walking through Jerusalem and happened by Finkelstein's shop. There was a huge line of people waiting for Finkelstein's robes. He pushed his way through the crowd to speak to Finkelstein.
"Jesus! Jesus!! Look what a marvel you've been for business!" gushed Finkelstein. "Would you consider a partnership?"
"Sure, sure," replies Jesus. "Jesus and Finkelstein it is."
"Oh, no, no," says Finkelstein. "Finkelstein and Jesus. After all, I am the craftsman."
The two of them debated this for some time. Their discussion was long and spirited, but ultimately fruitful. Finally, they came up with a mutually acceptable compromise. A few days later, the new sign went up over Finkelstein's shop . . .
"LORD & TAYLOR"
