Reminds me of one of my fave Jewish jokes.

Hymie gets hit by a bus and is clearly slipping away fast. A priest happens to be in the assembled crowd, and steps forward to administer the last rites, saying: "Tell me, my son, do you believe in the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost?". Hymie manages to open one eye, throws the priest a peevish look, and says: "Oy! Here I am dyin', and he asks me riddles already..."
