Rabbi Stern rides his bike down the road, when a truck careens around = the corner, out of control, and broadsides the Rabbi.
Father Flannery watches this event unfold, and as he runs toward the = Rabbi, he notices that Rabbi Stern first touches his forehead, then his = stomach, then each shoulder. As Father Flannery reaches the Rabbi, he = kneels and makes the sign of the cross himself.
“Rabbi, I notice that you crossed yourself after getting up from the = accident. It’s a miracle, must be! Have you seen the light? Do you = believe, man?”
“Aw, heck no!” replied Rabbi Stern, “I was just checking.”
“Checking? Checking for what?”
Rabbi Stern begins the ritual again, and follows each movement with: = “Spectacles… Testicles… Wallet… Watch!”
