Tuesday titter

After much forethought we decided a mistake has
been made with our Sunday Snickers. In this
politically correct society we live in we did not
want to appear anti-Irish or give the impression we
had anything against Catholics. Then a friend
shared a joke that involved neither so we decided
to share it to atone for our indiscretions.

Little Thelma comes home from first grade and tells
her father that they learned about the history of
Valentine’s Day. And, “Since Valentine’s Day is for
a Christian saint and we’re Jewish,” she asks,
“Will God get mad at me for giving someone a
valentine?

Thelma’s father thinks a bit then says “No, I
don’t think God would get mad. Who do you want
to give a valentine to?”

“The Isis group,” she says. “Why them,” her
father asks in shock?

“Well,” she says, “I thought that if a little
American Jewish girl could have enough love to give
them a valentine, they might start to think that
maybe we’re not all bad, and maybe start loving
people a little bit. And if other kids saw what I
did and then they sent valentines to them, they’d
love everyone a lot. And then they’d start going
all over the place telling everyone how much they
loved them and how they didn’t hate anyone anymore.”

Her father’s heart swells and he looks at his
daughter with newfound pride. “Thelma, that’s the
most wonderful thing I’ve ever heard.”

“I know,” Thelma says, “and once that gets them out
in the open, the Marines could blow the shit out of
them.”
