"Oy veyizmir!"

	-= Man and Wife =-

An Israeli mayor in a small town is walking past a construction site with
his wife. One of the construction workers stops and calls out to the woman.

"What's new, Sara?"

"Why, it's nice to see you again Avi," the woman replies.  She introduces
her husband to the construction worker, and they speak for several minutes.

After the mayor and his wife continue on, he turns to his wife to ask how
she knows him.

"Oh," she said. "We went together in high school. I even thought about
marrying him."

The mayor begins to laugh. "You don't realize how lucky you are. If I hadn't
come along, today you would be the wife of a construction worker!"

The wife replies without hesitation, "Not really. If I had married him, he'd
now be a mayor!"

about her, the old man just wants to know her family name.  When the young

is not a good Jewish name, and he must forget her, and go and find a nice
Jewish girl. So time passes, and the young guy finds another girl, but her
name is Austin, so his Father tells him the same thing, to find a nice
Jewish girl with a nice Jewish name. So more time passes, and the young guy
finds another girl, but this time he is sure that he has solved the problem
because the girl's name is Goldberg. "Goldberg !" exclaims his Father, "This
makes me very happy because it is a real good Jewish name, and from a good
established family." He asks what her first name is. "Is it one of my
favourites, like Rachael, or Rebecca ?" "No Father" replies the young guy.

by Jews in the Jewish section of town. They are talking among themselves in
Yiddish. A Chinese waiter comes up and in fluent and impeccable Yiddish asks
them if everything is okay, can he get them anything, and so forth. The
Jewish men are dumbfounded. "My God, where did he learn such perfect
Yiddish?" they both think. After they pay the bill they ask the manager of
the store, an old friend also fluent in Yiddish, "Where did your waiter
learn such fabulous Yiddish?" The owner looks around and leans in so no one
will hear and says, "Shhhh. He thinks we're teaching him English."

"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.
