       Attacks by throwing Deadly Spinning Driedls (sp?) in his enemies general direction

       . . . Last time, you remember, our hero, Kaptain Kosher, in his secret identity as mild-mannered reporter David Mogen, was being menaced by the National Aryan White-Peoples Party, who were trying to tempt him with free ham. Ducking into a nearby synagogue, he reappears as KAPTAIN KOSHER: faster than a speeding rumor, more powerful than a swastika, able to leap over a mosque in a single bound. Together with his sidekick, Aleph-Null, he fights for justice, intelligence, tolerance, fairness, equality, and a piece of whitefish from the middle, a NICE piece of whitefish, you know what I mean, Sid?

       so, about superman - how was the bris performed? using a kryptonite scalpel or something?
yamahito, Jul 24 2002
  

       Ah, you forget that the bris is performed eight days after the childs birth. When superman arived on earth he was already a toddler. The people of krypton would already have the tools to complete the bris of a super-human being.

       wait a minute, the Kryptonians were jews, too? I thought we were talking about the Kents...   

       (oh, and don't forget - the Kryptonians aren't super-powered on Krypton - It is the earth's yellow sun which lent Kalel his powers.. or something..)

timo, Jul 24 2002
