An absurd exaggeration:
I'm driving in Bangor, Maine, and I spots this driver wearing a life jacket. I wonders what this guy knows that I don’t. So’s I looks up into the tax ridden sky searching for storm clouds -- almosts hit a cab. But, naw, nothing up there but the quickest way to Finland if you has a blimp. So, I shrugs my wee shoulders and figures what-the-hell the pre-flood motorist is probably just a lucky bastard out for a large beer. But, then I spots four women speeding recklessly after this guy in a beat up Audi --
So, heck, maybe the guy’s a good Muslim and his wives are gonna head him off before he makes it to a bar. Or maybe he’s a good Irish Catholic and his ex-wives are in hot pursuit because its tea time. Or maybe it’s four good Rabbis chasing a moil. Huh? Well, sure enough I hears the religious ladies sing out: “Hold up fella, we have to have someone circumcised."
Whether Muslim, Christian, or Jewish, or whether the Irish fella in the lifejacket knows what a moil is, he answers up: "No problem darlins, pull over. I'm your man."
