ALLAH!”(my child has Islamic fundamentalist tendencies…what can I say?) (uncomfortable glances from other restaurant patrons) Jenny (shifting tactics): “So are you nervous at all?” Joey: … (crickets chirping…stuffs more bagel in mouth) –End scene– Previous This is how the Titanic looked Newer Cheapest thrills 2 Comments Anonymous March 8, 2012 at 8:10 pm Reply Jenny… this is great!
