    •  what is tip jar? (none)
      •  a tip jar... (4.00)
        a tip jar is a comment a person puts on their own diary to allow people to rate the diary by rating the comment. diaries can't be rated, only recommended. the ratings help one's mojo. don't ask what that is, please.
      •  Diarist is looking for ratings!!! n/t (none)
      •  it is a place (none)
        where people can rate me with 4's if they think the diary is worthy (or less if it stinks.) Basically, I'm insecure and like the encouragement. Getting a lot of 4's is a good way for me to tell my diary is appreciated.

      •  A tip jar is where they keep... (4.00)
        ...what's left after a bris.

        After it's full, the essence of the collected donations is distilled into a very powerful, smoky liquid - known as 'mojo.'

        Highly-placed members of the DNC have been known to offer over $400/gram for this liquid - said to greatly enhance the pleasure of ripping Republicans apart verbally - but it has so far only been offered to left wing bloggers, and others pure in heart.

        There is rumored to be a second distillation, of such immense power that even those administration officials with the courage to tell President Bush the truth tremble at its mention - Jerome a Paris wrote a Diary about it some time ago, as our resident expert in such distillates - but this is unconfirmed.

            •  God Forgive Me... (none)
              but I hear they take the foreskins after the bris, sew them into wallets - if you rub them, they become suitcases.

              OK...it's an old one.

              •  A guy went fishing... (none)
                and saw a man with many fish.

                He said "what's your secret?"

                The fisherman replied, 'I'm a doctor, and when I perform a tonsilectomy, I keep the tonsils and use them for bait"

                The guy moved along the pier and saw another fisherman with even more fish, so he asked "what's your secret?"

                The fisherman replied, 'I'm a doctor, and when I perform a appendectomy, I keep the appendix and use it for bait"

                The guy moved along and saw a third fisherman with yet even more fish. The guy says, "Don't tell me. You're a doctor?"

                The fisherman says "No, I'm a Mohel. Why do you ask?"

        •  bris is the son of hubris? (none)
          •  hmmm.... could be! (4.00)
            In classical Greek morality, the inevitable downfall associated with "hubris" was known as "nemesis".

            For an eight-day-old penis (or newer, if you're just doing the goyishe hospital thing -- "he should look like his father!!"), a mohel (the snipper) might be very much a nemesis!

    •  What the heck...? (none)
      I'll rate you a '4', UpToDate.  This really is a good story to illustrate just how restless the Press are getting.  They are beginning to smell blood and are beginning to do what they should have had the courage to do back on September 12, 2001 (instead of cravenly promising GWB a free ride a la Dan Rather).

      Thanks for posting this.  It should give us all heart for the struggle ahead.  These bastards will NOT go quietly into that good night.
