[Ads-l] A proverb

Is anyone else familiar with this one?

"Science is two Jews arguing."

It appears to be unknown to Google. I heard it once from a friend, ca.
1972-73, and I haven't heard it or seen it since.

I'm not particularly interested in discovering the origin of this. My
friend may very well have made it up on the spot, himself.


But it's always struck me as a cool saying and I'm interested in extending
the knowledge of it beyond my memory.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
