A Priest and a Rabbi


Recommended Posts

:FlagAm: 

A priest and a rabbi were sitting next to each other on an
airplane. After a while, the priest turned to the rabbi and asked, "Is it
still a requirement of your faith that you not eat pork?"

The rabbi responded, "Yes, that is still one of our beliefs."

The priest then asked, "Have you ever eaten pork?"

The rabbi replied, "Yes, on one occasion I did succumb to temptation and
tasted a ham sandwich."

The priest nodded in understanding and went on with his reading. A while
later, the rabbi spoke up and asked the priest, "Is it still a requirement
of your church that you remain celibate?"

The priest replied, " Yes, that is still very much a part of our faith."

The rabbi then asked him, "Have you ever fallen to the temptations of the
flesh?"

The priest replied, "Yes, rabbi, on one occasion I was weak and broke with my faith."

The rabbi nodded understandingly and remained silent, thinking about five
minutes.

Finally, the rabbi said, "Beats a ham sandwich, doesn't it?"

That depends on factors we probably shouldn't discuss here. nudge, nudge, wink, wink... ;)

What factors are you thinking about, Pat?

 

The bacon might be served with two eggs and wheat toast. 
 

It might be thick sliced and pepper cured. 
 

It might be uncured and cooked into a dish as pork belly. 
 

Or, if it’s really lucky, it might be Benton’s Bacon from Madisonville, TN. http://bentonscountryham.com/about.html
 

It’s been said that Benton’s Bacon would make a rabbi give up his vows, probably faster than the priest would renounce his.

One o my favorite jokes.  I heard it from Monsignor Rafferty, one of our fraternity advisors in college.  :o

It might beat the ham sandwich, but what about bacon?


Oh, heck, I’ll say it.
If bacon beats sex, you’re doing it wrong!

Father Ryan and Rabbi Goldfarb had been friends for 30 years.  One day they were attending an ecumenical conference and it was time for lunch.  As they were going through the buffet line, Rabbi Goldfarb made himself a pastrami on rye, and Father Ryan made himself a ham and swiss. cheese sandwich.

 

They sat down together and Father Ryan said, "Rabbi Goldfarb, when are you going to try some of this wonderful ham?"

 

Rabbi Goldfarb replied, "At your wedding, Father."
