Big nose

For those of you fluent in ancient Hebrew this will be a boring blog.

For the rest of you, I thought you might find it interesting to know that when God describes himself in Exodus 34 one of the descriptions is that he is slow to anger. Literally in Hebrew this is that God has a long nose. The Hebrews thought that anger originated in the nose (probably because when one gets angry their nostrils will flare), so one who has a long nose requires more time for the anger go come forth.

Big noses are God like.

Just thought you might like to know.

Wow. Never have I been so tempted to rail out some jokes at the cost of Jewish people.

I'm tempted to make some jokes, but I want to be able to deny it later, so I won't post it.

I agree that there are so many funny things running through my head. I've always thought my nose to be on the larger size but I think I am jealous of Steve Martin in the movie "Roxanne."
