    Please! Don’t tell Obama what goes after a trillion!!


    Which smartypants taught him ‘a trillion’ to begin with?!


    This morning, from a cave somewhere in Pakistan , Taliban Minister of Migration Mohammed Omar, warned the United States that if military actions against Iraq continues, Taliban authorities intend to cut off America ‘s supply of Convenience Store Managers and possibly Motel 6 Managers.

    And, if this action does not yield sufficient results, Cab drivers will be next, followed by DELL and AOL customer Service Reps. Finally, if all else fails, they have threatened to send us no more candidates for President of the United States !

    It’s gonna get ugly!!!


    A grandmother was telling her little granddaughter what her own childhood was like: “We used to skate outside on a pond. I had a swing made from a tire; it hung from a tree in our front yard. We rode our pony. We picked wild raspberries in the woods.”

    The little girl was wide-eyed, taking this in. At last she said, “I sure wish I’d gotten to know you sooner!”


    A little 4 yr. old girl was diligently pounding away on her grandfather’s word processor. She told him she was writing a story.

    “What’s it about?” he asked.

    “I don’t know,” she replied. “I can’t read.”


    I didn’t know if my granddaughter had learned her colors yet, so I decided to test her. I would point out something and ask what color it was. She would tell me, and always she was correct. But it was fun for me, so I continued.

    At last she headed for the door, saying sagely, “Grandma, I think you should try to figure out some of these yourself!”

    When my grandson, Billy, and I entered our vacation cabin, we kept the lights off until we were inside to keep from attracting pesky insects. Still, a few fire flies followed us in. Noticing them before I did, Billy whispered, “It’s no use, Grandpa. The mosquitoes are coming after us with flashlights.”

    A second grader came home from school and said to her grandmother, “Grandma, guess what? We learned how to make babies today.”

    The grandmother, more than a little surprised, tried to keep her cool.

    “That’s interesting,” she said, “How do you make babies?”

    “It’s simple,” replied the girl. “You just change “y” to “i” and add “es.”

    (What English Teacher wouldn’t love that one?)


    Mommy Test

    I was out walking with my 4 year old daughter. She picked up something off the ground and started to put it in her mouth. I took the item away from her and I asked her not to do that.

    “Why?” my daughter asked.

    “Because it’s been laying outside, you don’t know where it’s been, it’s dirty and probably has germs,” I replied.

    At this point, my daughter looked at me with total admiration and asked, “Wow! How do you know all this stuff?”

    “Uh,” I was thinking quickly, “All Moms know this stuff. It’s on the Mommy Test. You have to know it, or they don’t let you be a Mommy.”

    We walked along in silence for 2 or 3 minutes, but she was evidently pondering this new information.

    “Oh…I get it!” she beamed, “So if you don’t pass the Test you have to be the Daddy!”

    “Exactly!” I replied back



    OK time for another Carlebach:

    “Oy, holy brothers and holy sisters, I want you to know, I want you to know, what is it again I wanted you to know, oy mamash a gevald I want you to know that there is a holy brother, so special, so holy, he sits now in jail for 150 years the judge is sending him because, oy, so special, so holy, he take money from people such a gevald, he say from him they will have money in their old age, mamash even until more than 120, such a gevald.

    But oh, my holy brothers and my holy sisters, this holy Jew, this special holy Jew, his name is Bernard Madoff, he pays the people who give him money, mamash so holy, so special, only from other people who are giving him their money that for them is so holy, so special.

    And I want you to know, I want you to know, that if you do that, holy brothers and sisters, mamash a gevald what I want you to know, that if you do that and your name is such a holy Jewish name like Madoff so special like Shereshevsky, I want you to know, I want you to know, you go straight to jail for many, many years, such a gevald, so low a place, jail is the lowest place in the world…

    But I want you to know, such a gevald, you want to run this kind of a business, that is named for such a holy tzaddik called Ponzi, just you must always remember, you must always remember to change your name that is so holy and so special, no matter how special, how holy, mamash so holy your name is to you.

    Because I want you to know that the only way you can get away with making a business like the tzaddik Reb Ponzi who was so holy and so special, is if you change your name….you must change your name to a name that is so holy you can never go to jail with such a name….

    That name, so holy, so special, it is mamash a gevald, it is the holiest of holies, the sweetest of the sweet, it is the name Social Security…the hoooolllyy name of Sooooocial Security, Social Security, Social Security….

    Tune: Mizmor Shir Leyoim HaShabbos…

    Your holy zayde is getting

    Sociallll Security

    Because your holy tatty is paying

    Social Security

    And when your tatty is needing

    Sociallll Security

    You will be the one paying

    Social Security

    But when you are the one needing

    Socialllll Security

    Who will be paying

    Social Security?

    Your children’s children

    Will keep paying

    Soooocial Security

    No one will soon see one cent

    And no more security

    All of America is wanting

    Social Security

    But soon there is no more money

    For Social Security

    Obama prints more money

    For Sociallll Security

    Just like Madoff took money

    And promised security

    I am not waiting

    For Socialll Security

    I print my own moneeeyyy

    For the only real security….

    Attending a wedding for the first time, a little girl whispered to her mother, ‘Why is the bride dressed in white?”

    The mother replied, ‘Because white is the color of happiness, and today is the happiest day of her life.’

    The child thought about this for a moment then said, ‘So why is the groom wearing black?’

    A police recruit was asked during the exam, ‘What would you do if you had to arrest your own mother?’ He answered, ‘Call for backup.’



    A kid got sick of his tzioini grandfather telling him stories of how he cleared the swamps, paved roads and built buildings when he was a young man.

    mepal, last one was EXCELLENT!

    ambush reminded me of this old old one on the tough choice thread.

    A newly married wife, having time off from work, made elaborate four course dinners for her new husband. Every night, after dinner, she would ask him how it was. Every night he would reply, “Wonderful, but nothing like my mothers.” One day, the poor wife got caught up in something and unfortunately forgot about supper. That night, forgetting that her supper burned, she asked her daily, “How was supper?” He answers: “Ahh, finally you got it right! just like my mothers!”



    Ha ha kapusta! cute!


    I want to die while asleep like my grandfather,

    not screaming in terror like the passengers in his car.


    In memory

    With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week. Larry LaPrise, the man who wrote “The Hokey Pokey”, died peacefully at age 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.


    lol mepal!!!


    Speaking about chutzpat, kilobear, that last one reminds me of a text I got before Pesach regarding birchas hachame.

    A kid was acting up and his father threatened him saying if you don’t behave, I won’t take you tomorrow morning to birchas hachama. The kid answered, “If you’re not nice to me, I won’t take you next time!”



    ha ha, anonymisss! good one!


    There was a student that made a lot of problems in class; he fought with classmates, made a lot of noise

    The teacher tried a lot of things, but nothing helped.

    Father: What do you want me to do?

    Teacher: Maybe take him for a check-up.

    Father: How is that going to help?

    Teacher: Maybe the child should take Ritalin (a calming drug).

    Father: How am I going to get this Ritalin?

    Father: Who is going to remember to give it to the child every day in a house full of children?

    The father agreed to the plan. Every morning the teacher prepared the pill next to the coffee machine and went into class. After a few minutes the child would come in with the coffee, and everything went fine.

    Child: Great!


    A Polish man moved to the USA and married an American girl. Although his English was far from perfect, they got along very well until one day he rushed into a lawyer’s office and asked him if he could arrange a divorce for him.

    An interesting item:

    Today on July 8 comes the moment that can be called 12:34:56 7/8/9

    It happens only once over the course of history

    1. squeak mentioned this hours ago in the “This date in history” thread

    2. Why do you say once in the course of history? What about 1909, 1809, 1709?


    mod, they probably didnt use clocks in 1709 and maybe 1809. The 1909 part still has some fighting value.


    d a

    areivimzehlazeh: July 8, 2090 would be better:

    12:34:56 7/8/90 (12345679890)!!!!!


    Hiya all! I’m still in camp but I got access to a computer for a fer hours so I was just checking up on this thread and I think it needs help so here’s one that popped into my head. Enjoy it and PLEASE keep this thread alive!

    A road consturction manager needed to hire someone to paint the yellow lines down the middle of a newly constructed road. A blonde, a brunette, and a redhead all get hired. They are each assigned a section of the road. The first day, the blonde paints 2 miles, the redhead 1.5, and the brunette only 1. On the second day, the blonde paints 1 mile, the brunette 2, and the redheaed 2.5. On the third day, the blonde only gets 1/4 of a mile done, the redheaed 3, and the brunette 3.5. The manager decides to talk to the blonde.

    “You haven’t been painting as much road as you did on the first day,” the manager said. ”What’s the problem?”

    ”I’d be painting more, but the bucket keeps getting farther and farther away!”’


    h2, if I may say so, I think this thread HAS gotten lots of ATT lately!


    During a visit to the mental asylum, I asked the Director: “How do You determine whether or not a patient should be institutionalized.”

    ‘Well,’ said the Director, ‘we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the bathtub.’

    ‘Oh, I understand,’ I said. ‘A normal person would use the bucket because it’s bigger than the spoon or the teacup.’

    ‘No.’ said the Director, ‘A normal person would pull the plug. Do you want a bed near the window?’

    New Year’s Resolutions for peopel who are addicted to YWN coffe room…

    I will stop sending e-mail to my wife (husband).

    I resolve to work with neglected children — my own.

    I will answer my snail mail with the same enthusiasm with which I answer my e-mail.

    I will stop sending e-mail, ICQ, Instant Messages and be on the phone at the same time with the same person.

    I resolve to back up my 12GB hard drive daily…well, once a week… okay, monthly then…or maybe…

    When I hear a funny joke I will not reply, “LOL… LOL!”

    I will read the manual… just as soon as I can find it.

    I will think of a password other than “password.”

    In a slalom race, the skier must pass through about 20

    “gates” in the fastest time.

    Well, it happened that a very Orthodox Yeshiva in Montreal had an exceptional skier among its students.. So fast, that in practice, with tzitzis streaming out behind, he had beaten the world record several times.

    After first checking to make sure none of the men’s slalom races

    would be on the Sabbath, he tried out for and made the Canadian Winter Olympic team. With his times in the trial heats, he was the favorite for an Olympic gold medal.

    Came the day of the final, the crowd waited in anticipation.

    The French champion sped down the course in 38 seconds.

    The Swiss in 38.7 seconds.

    The German in 37.8 seconds.

    The Italian in 38.1 seconds.

    Then came the turn of the Canadian Yeshiva “bocher.” The

    crowd waited,

    and waited………

    Finally, after a full five minutes, he crossed the finish line.

    “What happened to you?” screamed his coach when the skier finally arrived.

    Breathing hard, the exhausted yeshiva student replied, “All right,

    who’s the wise guy who put a mezuzah on every gate?”


    As you know, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton

    fell and broke her right elbow, earlier this week.

    The same day, she was telling Israel, yet again, how the US will accept nothing less than a complete cessation of construction in the settlements, including “East” Jerusalem.

    I am reminded of: If I forget thee O Jerusalem, let my right hand wither ?? ????? ??????? ???? ?????


    …nameless, the next part could be quite interesting: “tidbak leshoni….”

    Stamp Malfunction

    The Postal Services created a stamp with a picture of President Obama.

    However, the stamp was not sticking to envelopes.

    This enraged the President, who demanded a full investigation.

    After a month of testing, and $1.73 million in congressional spending,

    a special Presidential commission presented the following findings:

    *The stamp is in perfect order.

    *There is nothing wrong with the adhesive.

    *People are spitting on the wrong side.


    ok, sounds interesting!


    that was for yossi.


    for h2’s sake, have a heart and help me keep this thread alive!

    This man in a Ford Granada pulls up next to a guy in a Rolls Royce at a stop sign. Their windows are open and he yells at the guy in the Rolls: “Hey, you got a telephone in there?”

    The guy in the Rolls says, “Yes, of course I do.”

    “I got one too… see?”

    “Uh, huh, yes, that’s very nice.”

    Then the man in the Granada says, “You got a fax machine?”

    “Why, actually, yes, I do.”

    “I do too! See? It’s right here!”


    The light is just about to turn green and the guy in the Granada says, “So, do YOU have a double bed in back there?”

    And the guy in the Rolls says, “NO! Do


    “Yep, got my double bed right in back here – see?!”

    The light turns and the man in the Granada takes off.

    Well, the guy in the Rolls is not about to be one-upped, so he goes immediately to a customizing shop and orders them to put a double bed in back of his car.

    About two weeks later, the job is finally done and he picks up his car and drives all over town looking for the Granada. He finally finds it parked alongside the road so he pulls his Rolls up next to it.

    The windows on the Granada are all fogged up and he feels a little awkward about it, but he gets out of his newly modified Rolls and taps on the foggy window of the Granada.

    The man in the Granada finally opens the window a crack and peeks out.

    The guy in the Rolls says, “Hey. Remember me?”

    “Yeah, yeah, I remember you. What’s up?”

    “Check this out – I got a double bed

    installed in my Rolls.”

    And the man in the Granada says, “YOU GOT ME OUT OF THE SHOWER TO TELL ME THAT?!”



    kapusta, will try my best 😉
