Very good. I grew up in a Jewish neighborhood, so all of my Jewish friends put me on their Jewish joke list. I spent some time in Salt Lick and several years in Pocatello, so I get the jokes. Can I be on your Mormon joke list? LewBob

PS And Mitt Romney was a few doors down in my freshman dorm. And it wasn't BYU. He had an old Rambler with a siren and also a cop uniform. He got chuckles out if pulling people over. They never noticed it was a Rambler!!!

I grew up in Northern Lower Michigan (Traverse City area) and you could substitute Dutch Calvinist for Mormon in those and most of it would fit.

Now as regards that green jello thing, please remember that in the upper middle west bovine byproducts are considered a vegetable. The three catagories in a church supper are always hot dish, bars and salads. And no pot luck is complete without the green jello with fruit cocktail and cool whip, which falls into the "salad" catagory.
