A Great Jew Joke


But it’s probably not as funny to a non-Jew.

A Jewish girl tells her Catholic college roommate that she’s going home for Rosh Hashanah.

“Oh,” the Catholic girl says. “That’s the holiday when you light the eight candles, right?”

“No,” the Jewish girl replies. “That’s Hanukah.”

“Oh, right,” the Catholic girl says. “Rosh Hashanah is the holiday when you eat the unleavened bread?”

“No,” the Jewish girl replies. “That’s Passover. Rosh Hashanah is the holiday when we blow the shofar.”

“See,” the Catholic Girl says. “That’s what I like about you Jews… you’re so good to the hired help.”

    One day Mrs. Gushman goes walking in to a travel agents.
    “I want to go to Tibet!” She tells the agent.
    “Are you sure, Mrs. Gushman? Tibet isn’t a very nice place for a vacation. Why not try Hawaii?”
    “No!” says Mrs. Gushman. “I want to go see the Lama.”
    So the agent books her flight.
    When she gets to Tibet she hires a guide. “Take me to see the Lama.”
    “But no one is allowed to see the Lama!” The guide tells her.
    “I will see him.” She insists. “Take me to see the Lama!”
    So the guide takes her up to the Lama’s palace. The monks at the door stop her and tell her no one is allowed to see the Lama.
    “I am! I am here to see the Lama! Let me in!”
    The monks protest.
    “I don’t care. I want to see the Lama!”
    Finally they decide she can go in, but she can only ask the Lama one question and then she must leave. Mrs. Gushman agrees and the monks lead her inside.
    When she walks through the door, the Lama looks down at her and smiles serenely. Mrs. Gushman looks back at him and says….

    “Irving, when are you coming home? Your father is worried!”

    I’m sorry, it’s a terrible joke and there’s really nothing to get. I’ll go back to my corner now.
