Funny Friday

Did anyone else notice the weird ear on the  old time drawing of President Lincoln that accompanied yesterday's post?

It looks like Shrek's ear but without the tube. . .

Speaking of Presidents also enables me to segue into this week's Friday Funnies, this week some more Jewish humour  . .

I know that jokes often stereotype ethnic and religious groups and that some of that humour can be nasty. But I do love Jewish jokes.

The first Jewish President is elected.

He calls his Mother: "Mama, I've won the elections, you've got to come to the swearing-in ceremony."

"I don't know, what would I wear?"

"Don't worry, I'll send you a dressmaker"

"But I only eat kosher food"

"Mama, I am going to be the president, I can get you kosher food"

"But how will I get there?"

"I'll send a limo, just come Mama"

"Ok Ok, if it makes you happy.

The great day comes and Mama is seated between the Supreme Court Justices and the Future Cabinet members, she nudges the gentleman on her right. "You see that boy, the one with his hand on the Bible. His brother's a doctor!"

A man started to tell a joke at a party: "Two old jews were on their way..."

Suddenly he was interrupted by a sensitive guest.

"Why do so many jokes begin with Jews?"

"Oh, I'm sorry," apologised the story teller, "I'll start again.  Two old Chinese men were on their way to the Synagogue to see the Rabbi..."

Q: How many Jewish mothers does it take the change a light bulb?

A: (Sigh) Don't bother, I'll sit in the dark, I don't want to be a nuisance to anybody . .
