Israeli Percision

From Israel comes the story of a guide who was showing some visitors around a small local museum. "That fossil in the glass case over there is two million and nine years old" he told them.

"How can you date it so precisely?" someone asked admiringly.

"That's easy," said the guide. "I've been working here nine years and it was two million years old when I came."

Who is a Jew?

When Paul Newman died, they said how great he was, but they failed to mention he considered himself Jewish (born half-Jewish).

When the woman (Helen Suzman) who helped Nelson Mandela died, they said how great she was but they failed to mention she was Jewish.

When Ken Lay, Jeff Skilling, Martha Stewart, Randy Cunningham, Gov. Edwards, Conrad Black, Senator Keating, Gov. Ryan, and Gov. Blagojevich messed up, no one told me what religion or denomination they were -- they were not Jewish.

When Ivan Boesky or Andrew Fastow or Bernie Madoff committed fraud, every article mentioned they were Jewish.

This reminds me of a famous Einstein quote:

In 1921, Albert Einstein presented a paper on his then-infant Theory of Relativity at the Sorbonne, the prestigious French university. "If I am proved correct," he said, "the Germans will call me a German, the Swiss will call me a Swiss citizen, and the French will call me a great scientist. If relativity is proved wrong, the French will call me a Swiss, the Swiss will call me a German, and the Germans will call me a Jew."

The patient enters his psychiatrist office with a banana in one ear, a cucumber in the other and a carrot in each nostril. He says, "Doc, what's wrong with me?"

The psychiatrist looks him over and then he says, "I think I know what's wrong with you. You're not eating properly."
