Oh yeah, just in case the Brazilian women's beach volleyball team happen to be reading - that's my secondary phone pictured in the OP  :Cool also unfortunately the gif of Hagrid doesn't seem to be working.

I saw an air ambulance crew say that last week. She looked amused. Is there an origin?

Teh Intornetz Wrote:: The shaggy dog story that sets it up involves Catholic after Catholic parachuting out of the doomed plane, making the sign of the cross. Finally a rabbi signs in, and is questioned. He's making sure he's got the essentials, he replies, "Spectacles, testicles, watch and wallet." Joke, circa 1965 when I heard it.
: It became a running joke in our house, representing that mental check list one does before going out the door: touching pockets for keys, etc.


It is used in the hillarious movie titled 'Nuns on the Run' where two men on the run from the law impersonates ladies of the habit as it were. I think it may have been produced by the Monty Python crew, not sure of that, but I am sure the the late George Harrison was one of the producers.
Above is the first thing I found on the internet. For me it was a joke that a priest and a rabbi get in a car accident and both emerge from the car fine and the priest crosses himself followed by the rabbi. The priest askes the rabbi why did you just cross yourself? He replies, "What? Oh, spectacles, testicles, wallet, watch."

RE: The Holy Trinity

teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"
