Happy Yom Kippur?

Although my father’s side of the family is Jewish, I was brought up Christian (Presbyterian actually.) So my understanding of Yom Kippur isn’t from first hand experience.
I hope I got it right. More than that, I hope this comic is funny!

Art by John Tartaglione from the story “My Confidence Man” in FIRST KISS #5, 1958.

 

Transcript:

SCENE: Man and woman, almost cheek to cheek. The man looks sad. The woman looks on with an expression that shows concern, but seems to say that she knows something that the man doesn’t.

MAN: I can’t think of a Yom Kippur idea for today’s comic! I feel so guilty! I-I can’t even eat!

WOMAN: Guilt? Hunger? Congrats! That’s the essence of every Yom Kippur joke ever told! So…

MAN: Success!
