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:

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!
