Why I Hate "Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader?"

Jeff Foxworthy: What is the highest 2-digit even number?
Rabbi: (looks serious.) Well, 99 is the highest 2-digit number, but it's odd, so if you go one step down, that's 98. So I'm going to lock in 98.
Jeff Foxworthy: The answer is 98! You make this look so easy!

Do you need another reason?

Jeff Foxworthy: What would you do with $25,000?
Rabbi: Well, I would buy a hybrid car, and take my family on a trip to Israel, and then maybe give a little back to the synagogue.

Taxes: $6,250.
Hybrid car: $20,000
Trip for 4 to Israel: $12,000
Total: $38,250

Amount left to to give back to the synagogue: -$13,250.

Thanks, rabbi.

If you hate is so much, why are you watching it?

Maybe the rabbi will get a used hybrid. So maybe he will give about $100 to the synagogue.

Why is the highest two-digit number 98????

I always think, MAYBE it will be better than watching commercials during The Office this time. but it's not.

The question was "highest two digit EVEN number".

I am not a regular of the show, though I did stop there once when I was channel surfing and Gene Simmons was on, 'cause everything Gene Simmons does is mesmerizing.

I was watching cause the Rabbi is a friend of mine. He's a good guy. We should all lighten up.

And why, grinch Dani, would a trip to Israel have to cost $12k? The family could fly for $4k--or less with the baby on their laps--and maybe they've got friends and family to stay with. He is a rabbi, after all.

Dani Grigg said...

Haha, who are these people and why are they reading my blog?

Dani, I think you're totally hilarious. I love it. Thank you. Laughing. A lot.

The thing that makes me laugh the most about these comments is Jason addressing "The Boob Nazi" as "Boob" (I know neither Jason nor "Boob," by the way). The post itself was also funny.

I could be referred to as boob. I don't mind.
