*** Unless you interpret it as a statement that [[AGodAmI the majority of the religious oligarchy trumps God Himself]]. Then it becomes sheer FridgeHorror.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: Though most of the Talmud is rated G, some areas are incredibly explicit, such as Kesubos, which has sections dealing with minute details of sex acts.
** And Niddah has all you ever wanted to know about menstruation.
** The holy books are where you learn [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar all the cool things your parents would never let you read otherwise]]. Dina and Tamar and all those concubines, oh my!

* HoYay: Rabbi Yohanan and Resh Lakish in Bava Metzia 84a. Resh Lakish sees Rabbi Yohanan bathing in the Jordan, thinks he's a woman, and pole vaults the river on his lance. When he discovers his gender mistake, he says to Rabbi Yohanan, "Your beauty for women!". They become at the very least HeterosexualLifePartners, and brothers-in-law to boot, as Resh Lakish marries Rabbi Yohanan's sister.



* ValuesDissonance: Oh boy. Letís just say thereís a lot of xenophobia and misogyny going on, to the point that experts think that translating the Talmud to Arabic is anti-Semitic. [[http://www.jpost.com/JewishWorld/JewishNews/Article.aspx?ID=263861&R=R1 Seriously.]]
