An apology to our Jewish readers

As I was catching up on some reading Sunday, it came to my attention that Jiggs showed his ignorance regarding the meaning of Jewish holidays. As the Jewish member of the staff, it is normally my job to copy edit these things, but I've been busy lately.

As it turns out, I was at Jiggs's house on Friday during Yom Kippur, the actual Day of Atonement. In fact, I was so crazed with hunger because of my fast that I somehow ended up getting filmed in the shower for a future podcast.

Regardless, apologies to those who were offended at Jiggs's ignorance. I'm sure he'll do better next year. Besides, if you were were a good Jew this year, you have to forgive him for his sins against you anyway.

I apologize for confusing the time of repentence with the time of atonement.

But those two words are synonyms... oooh, I see what you did there.

i still think "Day of Abonement" is classic.

If I were John David Booty I would make everyone call me John David, David Booty or John Booty. Because when any annoucer refers to him as John David Booty it makes me think he's going to to try and kill someone to impress Jody Foster or suddenly grab a camera in the middle of a game and start shouting "Quid Pro Quo, Clarice!"

this is completely unrelated to this post, but Slappy mentioned Chuck Norris in the previous post.

My sister saw Chuck Norris eating breakfast at a Kettle Restaurant in College Station, TX this weekend.

It's where all the Texas Rangers eat.

I demand a response to my John David Booty musings.

We don't discuss Trojans here.

Okay, fine. The problem is that he's trying to compensate for a silly last name by going with three names to lend an air of sophistication. But that usually backfires: Jeffrey Michael Monkeybutt, for example, doesn't effectively cover for the last name.

I feel that Booty J Patrol should be glad he's not related to John David Booty or else he'd be Booty J Booty. Although I imagine he'd be able to score a lot of tail as John David Booty's wingman/remora.

Yeah, I hear Booty gets a lot of ass.

Thank you.

"Day of Abonement" is the only movie I have ever watched.
