In the Spirit ?

Both Al Gore and Dan Quayle were in New Hampshire campaigning. In the spirit of bipartisanship they shared an airplane between campaign stops. On the plane with them (for who knows what reason) were the Archbishop of New Hampshire and a Lubavitcher Rabbi. As they crossed the White Mountains the plane lost power and the pilot notified them that the plane would soon crash. He bailed out.

The remaining four quickly counted parachutes but found only three parachutes still on the plane. Gore shouted, "I'm the Vice President. I have to survive!", grabbed a 'chute and jumped.

Quayle shouted, "I'm the only hope for the Republican party and I have to survive!", grabbed a 'chute and jumped.

The Archbishop turned to the rabbi and said, "Rabbi, I am an old man. I am not married and have fathered no children. Take the last parachute and save yourself".

The Lubavicher replied, "Don't worry, Father, there are still two 'chutes left. Quayle jumped with my tallis and tefillin.

Always Be Careful with Your Speech

A Rabbi and a Priest died at the same time and met the chief Angel at the Pearly Gates. The Angel said, "I'd like to get you guys in now, but our computer's down. You'll have to go back to Earth for about a week, but you can't go back as humans. What'll it be?"

The Rabbi says, "I've always wanted to be an eagle, soaring above the Rocky mountains."

"So be it," says the Angel, and off flies the Rabbi.

The priest mulls this over for a moment and asks, "Will any of this week 'count'?"

"No, I told you the computer's down. There's no way we can keep track of what you're doing. The week's a freebie."

"In that case," says the priest, "I've always wanted to be a stud."

"So be it," says the Angel, and the priest disappears.

A week goes by, the computer is fixed, and the Lord tells the Angel to recall the two clergymen. "Will you have any trouble locating them?" He asks.

"The first one should be easy," says the Angel. "He's somewhere over the Rockies, flying with the eagles. But the second one could prove to be more difficult."

"Why?" asketh the Lord.

The Angel answers, "He's on a snow tire, somewhere in North Dakota."

Prize Pig
No, it ain't Jewish, but it's funny!

A farmer was in the bar bragging about his pig.

"That animal saved my life twice," he said. "Once I fell into the river and he jumped in and dragged me to the bank. Another time my house caught on fire and he ran in and saved me, the wife and kids."

The farmer passes around a picture of the miraculous animal. One of the guys notices the pig is missing a leg.

"Which accident did the pig lose its leg in?" he asks.

"Neither. An animal like that you don't eat all at once!"

Our Friends, the Lawyers

Two lawyers are in a bank, when, suddenly, armed robbers burst in. While several of the robbers take the money from the tellers, others line the customers, including the lawyers, up against a wall, and proceed to take their wallets, watches, etc. While this is going on lawyer number one jams something in lawyer number two's hand.

Without looking down, lawyer number two whispers, "Sam, what is this?" to which lawyer number one replies, "Moshe, it's that $50 I owe you."

Clinton in Chassidic Disguise

Bill Clinton was dismayed by the errors being made by the CIA and the FBI.

He called in the directors and asked, "How come Israel knows things we don't know? How come the Jews here in the US know things we don't know?"

Louis Freeh, the FBI director, called in Moe Katz, an undercover agent, and he told Clinton, "We have a code. We ask 'Vos tutzach?'- which means - What's happening? and we share information"

Clinton orders a Chassidic disguise. He puts on a caftan and shtreimel, a beard with payess and scuffed black shoes.

They secretly fly him into McGuire AFB in New Jersey on a Stealth Fighter. They then smuggle him in an old dented station wagon with an elderly Hassidic driver to Boro Park in Brooklyn, where he is dropped off on a corner.

Clinton approaches a man dressed similarly and asks, "Vos tutzach?"

"Shhhh", the man replies. "Bill Clinton is in Brooklyn."
