Subject: "The Wall" very funny but sadly bittersweet joke

Dear Fellow Cryoneters:
Rudi Hoffman from Port Orange, Florida here, where we just finished taking  

the gazing balls in from the garden preparatory to tropical storm (hurricane?)
Ernesto visit later this afternoon.  
Perhaps we could take a break from knowing everything about everything, as  
evidenced by some recent postings, to enjoy a short joke I found to be "laugh  
out loud" funny. 
Although it does have some theological content that may resonate with some  
of us.  If I was politically correct, I would apologize in advance for  
offending anyone.  Since I am not, I do SO hope I offend at least  SOMEONE.
Here it is:
A female CNN journalist heard about a very old  Jewish man who had been going 
to the Western Wall to pray, twice a day, every  day, for a long, long time. 
So she went to check it out. 

She went to the  Western Wall and there he was walking slowly up to the holy 
site. She watched  him pray and after about 45 minutes, when he turned to 

leave, using a cane in a  very slow fashion, she approached him for an 

"I'm Rebecca  Smith from CNN. Sir, how long have you been coming to the 
Western Wall and  praying?" 

"For about 60 years." 

"60 years! That's amazing! What  do you pray for?" 

"I pray for peace between the Christians, Jews and the  Muslims. I pray for 
all the hatred to stop and I pray for all our children to  grow up in safety 
and friendship." 

"How do you feel after doing this for  60 years?" 

"Like I'm talking to a fuckin' wall."
We now return you to your regularly scheduled  high signal to noise, 
extremely relevant cryonet content.   LOL!
