Someone gave Beernut a Christmas gift and he said "um...wouldn't have it been safer for him to just get me a holiday gift?"

I used to work for a Doctor who was Jewish and originally from Manhattan. He would just shake his head and sigh deeply when we would get ham and cheese Bagel sandwiches from a local (D.C.) shop.
