download.jpgMr. Harris, who recently retired, was at the golf course one day, when his ball got lost in the bushes… When he went to retrieve his ball, he noticed a little frog sitting on the ground… The frog looked up at Mr. Harris and said, “If you kiss me on my right side, I’ll turn into Governor Romney… If you kiss me on my left side, I’ll turn into President Obama!”… Without hesitation, Mr. Harris picked up the frog and put it in his shirt pocket… As he continued walking, the frog said: “Hey, why haven’t you kissed me?”

To which Mr. Harris replied, “Eh… I’d rather have a talking frog!”…

Like this reporter came to see me the other day and said: “Rabbi, we asked the local priest the question ‘when does life begin?’... His answer was: ‘at the moment of conception’… We asked the same question of the Presbyterian minister, and his answer was: ‘Life begins when the child is born.’… So Rabbi, what say you?... ‘When does life begin?’… I stroked my beard in thoughtful rabbinic fashion and said, “As I see it, life begins — when the kids are married and out of the house!”…
