Lent v. Yom Kippur
A priest and a rabbi are discussing the pros and cons of
their various religions, and inevitably the discussion turns
to repentance. The rabbi explains Yom Kippur, the solemn Day
of Atonement, a day of fasting and penitence, while the
priest
tells him all about Lent, and its 40 days of self-denial and
absolution from sins.

After the discussion ends, the rabbi goes home to tell his
wife about the conversation, and they discuss the merits of
Lent versus Yom Kippur. She turns her head and laughs.

The rabbi says, "What's so funny, dear?"

Her response, "40 days of Lent - one day of Yom Kippur . . .
so, even when it comes to sin, the goyyem pay retail!"
