Humor Top

Hermeneutics in Everyday Life describes a stop sign and its demands upon the human person, using a varietry of exegetical techniques (e.g. postmodernism, marxism, orthodox Catholic, fundamentalist, Orthodox Jew, etc.). My fave: A Breslover Hasidic Jew sees the sign and makes his boddidus (a form of spontaneous personal prayer) saying: "Robono Shel Olam (Master of the Universe) -- here I am, travelling on the road in Your service, and I'm about to face who knows what danger at this intersection in my life. So please watch over me and help me to get through this stop sign safely." Then, "looking neither to left nor right!" as Rebbe Nachman advises, he joyfully accepts the challenge, remains focused on his goal -- even if the car rolls backward for a moment -- then he hits the gas pedal and forges bravely forward, overcoming all obstacles which the yetzer hara (evil inclination) might put in his path." Then there is the New Testament scholar who notices that there is no stop sign on Mark Street but there is one on Matthew and Luke streets and concludes that the ones on Luke and Matthew streets are both copied from a sign on a hypothetical street called "Q". There is an excellent 300 page discussion of speculations on the origin of these stop signs and the differences between the stop signs on Matthew and Luke street in the scholar's commentary on the passage.
