I saw this on Reddit and had to see if there was any truth to it. It doesn't look like it is, but it'a funny story. I was so hopeful that something this ironic was more than a story. Hope that it gives you a good laugh.

In Jerusalem, a female journalist heard about an old Jew who had been going to the Western Wall to pray, twice a day, everyday, for a long, long time. So she went to check it out. She goes to the Western Wall and there he is! She watches him pray and after about 45 minutes, when he turns to leave, she approaches him for an interview. "I'm Rebecca Smith from CNN. Sir, how long have you been coming to the Western Wall and praying?""For about 50 years." "50 years! That's amazing! What do you pray for?""I pray for peace between the Jews and the Arabs. I pray for all the hatred to stop and I pray for our children to grow up in safety and friendship." "How do you feel after doing this for 50 years?""Like I'm talking to a fuckin' wall.

I haven't heard that joke. I'll have to tell it to my still-leaning Jewish spouse.

Reminds me of the (only funny) line in that Adam Sandler movie--they've been fighting for thousands of years, how much longer could it last?
