What's the meaning of this sentence:
"we ran out of tinfoil is up there with we're being audited."
You know, when I dated gentiles, they would be shocked that everything was like, you know, we ran out of tinfoil is up there with we're being audited. And I, I - you know, only another Jewish person could relate to that and, you know, that's very comforting and sexy, you know, for me at least.
(from documentary "When jews were funny")
It's being used as an example of a trivial event (we ran out of tinfoil) being given the same priority (is up there) as an important event (we're being audited).
