A Gabbai approaches a guest in the Shul and says “I want to give you an Aliyah.”
“What is your name,” he asks the man?
The man answers, “Ester bas Moshe.”
The Gabbai says, “No, I need your name.”
The man says, “It is Ester bas Moshe.”
The Gabbai asks, “How can that be your name?”
The man answers “I’ve been having serious financial problems, so everything is in my wife’s name.”June 14, 2009 4:34 am at 4:34 am #1173204the.nurseMember

here you go mepal.
Two elderly ladies had been friends for many decades. Over the years they had shared all kinds of activities and adventures. Lately, their activities had been limited to meeting a few times a week to play cards.
One day they were playing cards when one looked at the other and said, “Now don’t get mad at me… I know we’ve been friends for a long time, but I just can’t remember your name. I’ve thought and thought, but I can’t recall it. Please tell me what your name is.”
Her friend glared at her. For at least three minutes she just looked at her. Finally she said, “How soon do you need to know?”June 14, 2009 6:14 pm at 6:14 pm #1173207AZOI.ISParticipant

Ever since I was a child, I’ve always had a fear of someone under my bed at night, so I went to a shrink and told him, “I’ve got problems. Every time I go to bed I think there’s somebody under it. I’m scared. I think I’m going crazy.”
“Just put yourself in my hands for one year,” said the shrink. “Come talk to me three times a week and we should be able to get rid of those fears.”
“How much do you charge?”
“Eighty dollars per visit,” replied the Doctor.
“I’ll sleep on it,” I said.
Six months later the doctor met me on the street. “Why didn’t you ever come to see me about those fears you were having?” he asked.
“Well, eighty bucks a visit three times a week for a year is an awful lot of money! A bartender cured me for $10. I was so happy to have saved all that money that I went and bought me a new pickup!”
“Is that so!” With a bit of an attitude he said, “and how, may I ask, did a bartender cure you?”
“He told me to cut the legs off the bed! Ain’t nobody under there now!”
FORGET THE SHRINKS. GO HAVE A DRINK & TALK TO YOUR BARTENDER!

The teacher tried a lot of things, but nothing helped.
The father agreed to the plan. Every morning the teacher prepared the

minutes the child would come in with the coffee, and everything went
out of class and there were no fights!

It seems we’ve run down most of the good jokes n this thread. We could shoot for third time around or this,
Sam and Edith were married for almost 50 years and still very happy. Edith, being a good wife, always fed Sam only the healthiest. At every meal he would be served lots of veggies along with a starch and a protein. For their 50th anniversary, Sam decided to give back to Edith a little of what he’d gotten throughout their 50 years of marriage. Tragically, on the plane to Italy, where they were headed to celebrate the big day, the pilot lost control and the plane crashed. All passengers died.
They get up to heaven, and an angel asks them how they lived their lives. Both of them said very honestly that they were always honest, helped people, and lived their lives like good, upstanding people. the angel took them around to show them their new home. For Edith, a beautiful rose garden in front of the mansion they shared, and a full wardrobe. Sam got a boat for fishing, and a golf course. The angel left them to take in their new surroundings.
Edith: So Sam, what do you think?
Sam: I think its wonderful, you and your farshtinkene diets, we could have been here ten years ago!
I know, I know, not my best… sorry :/June 18, 2009 7:31 pm at 7:31 pm #1173234
Three Southerners and three Yankees are traveling by train to a conference. At the station, the three Yankees each buy a train ticket and watch as the three Southerners buy only a single ticket. “How are three people going to travel on only one ticket?” asks a Yankee.
“Watch and you’ll see,” answers one of the Southerners.
They all board the train. The Yankees take their respective seats but all three Southerners cram into a restroom and close the door behind them. Shortly after the train has departed, the conductor comes around collecting tickets.
He knocks on the restroom door and says, “Ticket, please.” The door opens just a crack and a single arm emerges with a ticket in hand.
The conductor takes it and moves on.
The Yankees see this and agree it was quite a clever idea. So after the conference, the Yankees decide to copy the Southerners on the return trip and save some money (being tight with money, and all that).
When they get to the station, they buy a single ticket for the return trip. To their astonishment, the Southerners don’t buy a ticket at all. “How are you going to travel without a ticket?” asks one perplexed Yankee.
“Watch and you’ll see,” answers a Southerner.
When they board the train, the three Yankees cram into a restroom and the three Southerners cram into another one nearby. The train departs.
Shortly afterward, one of the Southerners leaves his restroom and walks over to the restroom where the Yankees are hiding. He knocks on the door and says, “Ticket, please…”June 18, 2009 8:07 pm at 8:07 pm #1173235
try this one…
There’s this guy in a bar, just looking at his drink. He stays like that for half-an-hour. Then, this big trouble-making truck driver steps next to him, takes the drink from the guy and just drinks it all down.
The poor man starts crying. The truck driver says: “Come on man, I was just joking. Here, I’ll buy you another drink. I just can’t see a man crying.”
“No, it’s not that. This day is the worst of my life. First, I fall asleep, and I go late to my office. My boss, outrageous, fires me. When I leave the building, to my car, I found out it was stolen. The police, they say they can do nothing. I get a cab to return home and when I leave it, I remember I left my wallet and credit cards there. The cab driver just drives away. I go home, and when I get there, I find I lost my key. I can’t get in because my wife isn’t home. I leave, and come here.
And just when I was thinking about putting an end to my life, you show up and drink my poison…”June 18, 2009 8:28 pm at 8:28 pm #1173236June 18, 2009 8:46 pm at 8:46 pm #1173237

Here are 2 Little Johnny Jokes I just found:
Little Johnny is always being teased by the other neighborhood boys for being stupid. Their favorite joke is to offer Johnny his choice between a nickel and a dime — Little Johnny always takes the nickel.
One day, after Johnny takes the nickel, a neighbor man takes him aside and says, “Johnny, those boys are making fun of you. Don’t you know that a dime is worth more than a nickel, even though the nickel’s bigger?”
Johnny grins and says, “Well, if I took the dime, they’d stop doing it, and so far I’ve made $20!”
Teacher: “Little Johnny, give me a sentence using the word, ‘geometry.'”
Little Johnny: “A little acorn grew and grew until it finally awoke one day and said, ‘Gee, I’m a tree.'”
Little Johnny’s teacher asks him to make a sentence using the following words: defeat, deduct, defense and detail.
Little Johnny says, “De feet of de duck went over de fence before de tail.”June 21, 2009 4:11 pm at 4:11 pm #1173242

A woman went to a Florida lemon grove to apply for a job, but the foreman thought she seemed way too qualified for the position. “Do you even have any actual experience picking lemons?” he asked.
“Well, I think I do.” she replied. “I’ve been divorced three times.”June 21, 2009 11:19 pm at 11:19 pm #1173244A600KiloBearParticipant
How do we reconcile our rejection of evolution with the known fact that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is a direct descendant of Piltdown Man?June 22, 2009 1:07 am at 1:07 am #1173247
A really huge muscular guy with a bad stutter goes to a counter in a dept. store and asks –
s the m-m-m-mens dep-p-p-partment?”
The clerk behind the counter just looks at him and says nothing.
The man repeats himself: “W-w-w-where
s the m-m-m-mens dep-p-p-partment?”
Again, the clerk doesn`t answer him.
The guy asks several more times: “W-w-w-where
s the m-m-m-mens dep-p-p-partment?” And the clerk just seems to ignore him.
Finally, the guy is angry and storms off.
The customer who was waiting in line behind the guy asks the clerk, “why wouldn`t you answer that guy’s question?”
The clerk answers, “D-d-d-do you th-th-th-think I w-w-w-want to get b-b-b-beat up?!!”June 22, 2009 2:43 am at 2:43 am #1173248yossi z.Member
