Stopping Gossip with Gossip

Malka, the shul gossip, and self-appointed monitor of the shul's morals, kept sticking her nose into other people's business. Several members did not approve of her extra-curricular activities, but feared her enough to maintain their silence.

She made a mistake, however, when she accused Moshe, a new member, of being an alcoholic after she saw his old pickup parked in front of the town's only drinking establishment one afternoon.

She emphatically told Moshe and several others that everyone seeing it there would know what he was doing. Moshe, a man of few words, stared at her for a moment and just turned and walked away. He didn't explain, defend, or deny. He said nothing.

Later that evening, Moshe quietly parked his pickup in front of Malka's house.......

...... and left it there all night.

The Classic Jewish Dog Joke

Morty visits Dr. Saul, the veterinarian, and says, "My dog, has a problem."

Dr. Saul says, "So tell me about the dogand the problem."

"It's a Jewish dog. His name is Irving and he can talk," says Morty.

"He can talk?" the doubting doctor asks.

"Watch this!" Morty points to the dog and commands: "Irving, Fetch!"

Irving, the dog, begins to walk toward the door, then turns around and says, "So why are you talking to me like that? You always order me around like I'm nothing. And you only call me when you want something. And then you make me sleep on the floor, with my arthritis. You give me this fahkahkta food with all the salt and fat, and you tell me it's a special diet. It tastes like dreck! YOU should eat it yourself! And do you ever take me for a decent walk? NO, it's out of the house, a short pish, and right back home. Maybe if I could stretch out a little, the sciatica wouldn't kill me so much! I should roll over and play dead for real for all you care!"

Dr. Saul is amazed, "This is remarkable! What could be the problem?"

Morty says, "He has a hearing problem! I said 'Fetch', not 'Kvetch'".

The Origin of "Kiss My ---"?

It was in the great market in ancient Rome that Marcus Brutus Goldstein, a poor tailor, made Togas and sold them at his stall in the marketplace.

As was his wont, he shouted out his wares for sale, "Togas! - Finest Togas in all Rome!" he would shout, but alas, business was not good.

Finally, a friend suggested that since the weather was getting rather cold, he could increase business by lining the garments with a fine quality wool lining.

Marcus agreed and proceeded to line his Togas using the finest quality Kashmir lining.

And so, from that day forward, he could be heard

loudly and proudly proclaiming throughout the market place, "Kashmir in togas!"
