God went to the Arabs and said, "I have Commandments for you that
will make your lives better.
The Arabs asked, "What are Commandments?"
And the Lord said, "They are rules for living."
"Can you give us an example?"
"Thou shall not kill."
"Not kill? We're not interested."

So He went to the Blacks and said, "I have Commandments."
The Blacks wanted an example, and the Lord said, "Honour thy
Father and Mother."
Father? We don't know who our fathers are." We're not interested.

Then He went to the Mexicans and said, "I have Commandments."
The Mexicans also wanted an example, and the Lord said
"Thou shall not steal."
"Not steal? We're not interested."

Then He went to the French and said, "I have
The French too wanted an example and the Lord said, "Thou shall not commit adultery."
"Not commit adultery? We're not interested."

Finally, He went to the Jews and said, "I have Commandments."
"Commandments?" they said, "How much are they?"
"They're free."
"We'll take 10."

There, that ought to offend just about everybody!
And then there is our resident right-wing troll who tells us name calling is childish.
The hypocrisy is just pitiful and way off the charts and so very strong in this one.

I know you believe you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

I like being offended... Thanks.

It offends everyone but "the man". Isn't there something in there to offend the wasp population?

How did we end up with the commandments? Moses was high on a mountain, and very high. Anyone who speaks with a burning bush has to be high.
You heard about George Bush at some function he looked over and saw a man dressed realy strange and said to his aids thats moses aint it?
The aid went over and asked the guy and sure enough he said he was moses.
Bush hustled over and said hi, no response, and so George went back to his aid and said moses won't speak to me.
The aid went back and asked if he knew who the President was, and Moses said yes he did.
Is there any reason you won't speak to Mr Bush?
Moses replied the last time I talked to a Bush I had to spend 40 years in the desert.
