A Bit of Jewish Humor

December 10th, 2013

Living in South Florida you can’t help but hear a lot of Jewish humor. And it’s funny!! Remember Red Buttons, Milton Berle, Henny Youngman,Buddy Hackett, Don Rickles? You may be too young, but I miss their style. There’s not a single swear word in their comic routines:

* A car hit an elderly Jewish man. The paramedic says, “Are you comfortable?” The man says, “I make a good living.”

* I just got back from a pleasure trip. I took my in-laws to the airport.

* Someone stole all my credit cards, but I won’t be reporting it. The thief spends less than my wife did.

* The Doctor called Mrs. Cohen saying, “Mrs. Cohen, your check came back.” Mrs. Cohen replied, “So did my arthritis!”

Q: Why do Jewish mothers make great parole officers?
A: They never let anyone finish a sentence.

A Jewish mother gives her son a blue shirt and a brown shirt for his birthday. On the next visit, he wears the brown one. The mother says, “What’s the matter already? Didn’t you like the blue one?”
