I am Nothing
Yiskor service, and the Rabbi looking heavenward, passionatly
proclaims "Dear G_d, I but a speck on the ocean of your
countenance, I am nothing!"
The Cantor, seeing the rabbi, and not to be undone chants
"Dearest, omnipitant G_d, among your unworthy flock, *I* am
least worthy. I am nothing."
Finally, the Shamos being devout looks skyward and utters,
"Dear G_d, I am your lowliest servent, unworthy of
consideration. I am nothing."
Whereby the Rabbi looks at the Cantor with a smirk and
whispers, "NOW look who thinks he's nothing!!"
