J is for Jesus, Jew and Jam

I do rather like Jam.

Given it’s Christmas and all J is most definitely for Jesus.  I was going to write ‘J is for Jew’ but that sounded a bit accusatory and a kind of racist.  It’s not is it?  It’s only a word after all.  I tend not to think about what is and what is not appropriate when I write and simply go with it and watch my followers to see whether it effects the number.

Maybe it’s how you say it?  Or who says it?  If I am standing on top of a burning car outside of a bank it is most like decidedly racist, criminal and a load of other things that my mum would not be proud of.  If someone has a bomb vest on insisting J is for Jew and is shouting for his friend Alan Akbar then again – I am thinking it is probably a negative use.

Conversely, if I am wearing a little white hat thing on my head attending a colleagues son’s something-or-other where they cut parts of his dick off then I think it is simply a statement.  I sit and reflect: “Oh yes I see, J is for Jew.”  It’s almost a rather comforting and warming moment feeling that I am connected to a people that have spanned all of written memory.

Guess how it makes you feel is about you and not me really.

P.S.

You know, google is great.  I searched for ‘Jewish Cock Cutting Ceremony’ and it informed me it was called a bris.  I am assuming lots of other people have searched similar terms.  See, I’m not alone in my ignorance.

P.P.S

J is also for ‘Jam’.  I do like Jam.

  1. Well, at least you didn’t say, as Roy Moore’s wife said shortly before her husband lost the election for Senator from Alabama, “Our lawyer’s a Jew.” That was kinda anti-semitic.

  2. You forgot Joy! It’s both noun and proper noun. You know… had to add my two cents or pence or whatever you dudes say across the pond.
    Hey… is jam the same as jelly. I don’t get it! 😒

  3. Yeah saying J is for Jew is like saying C is for Christian…meh, not really a worry. What I really have a problem with is you saying that Jam and Jelly are the same. NO they are not! Picture me akimbo here stamping my foot! Jelly is made of juice so it’s translucent. Jam is made from whole fruit that’s been crushed so it has the seeds and whatnot still in there. I see that Jell-o is considered jelly over there and that’s a whole other kettle of fish. Jell-o is made from animal bones and skin so it’s only kosher if it’s from animals/fish killed in the kosher fashion. And that brings us back to J is for Jew and might even add a K is for Kosher for a bit of fun. 🙂
