So I Take The Bus

When my sister's 2nd child was born, she was going to name it either Christopher Robin (if it was a boy), or Ariel. So she wrote a letter to our dad, asking for his advice.

He wrote back and said, Don't name it Christopher Robin, because there's a little boy in a famous cartoon series named that already. And don't name it Ariel either... because, in a hijacking, people with Jewish names are usually the first to be killed.

...

Which would explain why he named me Joseph David...





HE WANTED ME DEAD!!!

IN A HIJACKING!



Just messing around, Dad. I love you.

Ariel is a Jewish name? Since when?

It's a man's name in the Old Testament and it means "Lion of God". You know the Israeli politician Ariel Sharon?
