Little Known Biblical Fact No. 1


The bible says that when Abraham informed Sarah that she would have a child at her advanced age, Sarah laughed and that is why they named their son Issac because it means "to laugh." The fact is, Sarah did not laugh, but she and Abraham felt that "choking until you are blue in the face" would have been an inappropriate name for the future leader of the the Hebrews.

LKBF is back! Hooray! And "choking 'till you're blue in the face" is a FINE name when faced with a plate of room-temperature gefilte fish, thank you very much. Or gribnitz. I mean who willingly eats gribnitz?

Oh, you have GOT to check out the Brick Testament (http://www.thebricktestament.com/) And, indeed, it shows that Deuteronomy and Leviticus are the funniest chapters BY FAR.
