How do you make a cross joint? You're a disgrace to your people!

Lucy's quotes:
Seth Rogen, renowned marijuana smoker, marijuana advocate and actor who plays stoners was recently on Late Night With Conan O'Brien promoting his movie Pineapple Express which is about a stoner and his stoner dealer. Now, I don't know how it happened but from far left field Conan raised the subject of marijuana. It's beyond me how this subject came up but it did happen.

Featured in Pineapple Express is an astounding technique that can only be performed by a Shaolin master of marijuana...which I think exists. I'm pretty sure Caine from Kung Fu is one. Anyway, Rogen must be one too because he introduced the 'Cross joint' technique into his movie. The cross joint from what I gather is two joints assembled into one cross for maximum effect (Do not try this at home. Especially if you're out of chips.). So, when Conan asks how Rogen's family feels about him publicizing his recreational habit that he's had since childhood, the Jewish Canadian Rogen says this:

''My grandmother is who I was really, really worried about. And uh, she finally saw the movie and you know, the cross joint specifically 'cause you know, you got to know quite a bit about weed to do that. So, uh, uh, so, she-she came up to me after and she's like 'You know, I'm unhappy with you. Especially about that cross joint.' I was like 'Oh, man. Here it comes.' and she's like 'Why couldn't it have been a Star of David joint?' ''

Now, I ask you: If you've got to be a Shaolin marijuana master just to get the cross joint technique a Star of David joint really a fair goal to expect your grandson to attain? Talk about Jewish guilt. That's just unreasonable, Seth Rogen's Grandma! Shame on you!
