| The Tailor
Jesus is wandering around Jerusalem when he decides he really needs a new robe. After looking around, he sees a sign for "Finkelstein, the Tailor."
He goes in and Finkelstein prepares a new robe for him, which is a perfect fit. When he asks how much he owes, Finkelstein brushes him off: "No, no, no,for the Son of God?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 agrees and, as promised, plugs Finkelstein's robes every time he preaches.
Some months later, Jesus is walking through Jerusalem and happens by Finkelstein's shop. There is a huge line of people waiting for Finkelstein's robes. He pushes 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 & Finkelstein it is."
"Oh, no, no," says Finkelstein. "Finkelstein & 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 come up with a mutually acceptable compromise.
A few days later, the new sign went up over Finkelstein's shop...
Are you sure you want to know?
This could be painful....
Okay, you asked for it!
Here it comes...
Don't say you weren't warned...
