I think the joke is that the police are investigating how the man died of gunshot wounds and asked his widow if she heard any last words from him. She says, “yes, he said ‘Go ahead. You couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn, anyway’.”November 19, 2008 6:24 pm at 6:24 pm #1171708

Two guys have been learning together for 20 years. One of them is going to make a bar mitzvah so he says to the other one, “I am making a bar mitzvah and I would like you to come.”
“I’m sorry, I can’t.”
“But I really want you to come.”
“You don’t understand. I just can’t come.”
“But why can’t you come?”
“I’m not Jewish.”
“What do you mean? We have been learning together for 20 years.”
“I enjoy the intellectual stimulation.”
“But we learned that a goy that keeps Shabbos is ‘chayav mitvos.'”
“I never kept Shabbos. Every time I was ready to leave my house, I put a key in my pocket.”
“But we have an eruv here.”
“I don’t hold from that eruv.”November 19, 2008 9:09 pm at 9:09 pm #1171713LeiderLeider…Participant
A Jewish lady’s grandson is playing in the water at the beach when all of a sudden, a huge wave appears from nowhere and crashes directly over the spot where the boy is wading.
The water recedes and the boy is no longer there. He simply vanished.
She holds her hands to the sky, screams and cries, “Hashem, how could you? Have I not been a wonderful mother and grandmother? Have I not given tzedokkah? Have I not davened? Have I not tried my very best to live a life that you would be proud of?”
A few minutes later another huge wave appears out of nowhere and crashes on the beach. As the water recedes, the boy is standing there, smiling, splashing around as if nothing had ever happened.
A loud voice booms from the sky, “Okay, okay, I have returned your grandson. Are you satisfied?”
She responds, “He had a hat!!”November 19, 2008 9:19 pm at 9:19 pm #1171714feivelParticipant

A lawyer and an elderly Jewish man are sitting next to each other on a long flight. The lawyer is thinking that Jews are so dumb that he could get over on them easy…so the lawyer asks if the Jew would he like to play a fun game.
The old Jewish man is tired and just wants to take a nap, so he politely declines and tries to catch a few winks. The lawyer persists, and says that the game is a lot of fun. I ask you a question, and if you don’t know the answer, you pay me only $5; you ask me one, and if I don’t know the answer, I will pay you $500, he says. This catches the Jew’s attention and to keep the lawyer quiet, he agrees to play the game.
The lawyer asks the first question. ‘What’s the distance from The Earth to the Moon?’ The elderly Jew doesn’t say a word, reaches in his pocket pulls out a five-dollar bill, and hands it to the lawyer.
Now, it’s the Jew’s turn. He asks the lawyer, ‘What goes up a hill with three legs, and comes down with four?’ The lawyer uses his laptop and searches all references he could find on the Net. He sends e-mails to all the smart friends he knows, all to no avail. After one hour of searching he finally gives up. He wakes up the Jewish man and hands him $500. The old Jew pockets the $500 and goes right back to sleep.
The lawyer is going nuts not knowing the answer. He wakes the elderly Jew up and asks, ‘Well, so what goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four?’
The Jew shrugs, reaches in his pocket, hands the lawyer $5 and goes back to sleep.November 20, 2008 9:14 pm at 9:14 pm #1171720
A favorite of mine, since I know the type of personality:
Sol, a meticulous German Jew, needs to go visit Japan on business. So he calls up the travel agent and has him book a round trip ticket for him. But Sol warns the agent, “Make sure that you get me a window seat. I must sit by the window.” The agent tells him no problem, he will take care of it.
The day before the flight, Sol calls the agent to confirm. The agent confirms. Sol asks him if he is sure that he got a window seat on the flight. The agent confirms this too.
When he gets to the airport, he goes to the check-in counter, checks in and then asks the ticket agent, “I want to make sure that my seat is by the window. I have to sit in the window seat.” The agent checks and confirms that a window seat is reserved for him.
At the gate, he presents his boarding pass and asks the attendant to check the pass and make sure he has a window seat. She assures him that he will have the window seat.
So Sol makes his way to his seat, and whaddaya know, it is NOT a window seat. It’s the middle seat NEXT TO the window seat. The entire flight, Sol is fuming. So the second he gets off the flight, he goes straight to the telephone and calls up the travel agent. He yells into the phone, “HOW COULD YOU DO THIS TO ME? I made sure to request a window seat, I confirmed it half a dozen times, and when I got on the flight I saw that you had NOT gotten me the seat you promised! I get very claustrophobic when I’m on a plane unless I’m right by the window.”
So the agent asks him, “I’m sorry for the mistake, but if it meant so much to you to have a window seat, why didn’t you just ask the person sitting next to you to please switch? I’m sure with your condition they would have agreed?”
Sol replies, “Of course, I would have asked. But there was no one sitting in the window seat!”November 21, 2008 12:13 am at 12:13 am #1171721

A Non-Jew called Jack was sitting next to Yankel on a flight. Mid flight he turns to him and asks him how come the Jews are so clever. Yankel replies “basically it’s very simple we have this amazing herring which we eat that just boosts our IQ tenfold”. “Can I have some please”, asks Jack. “Sure, replies Yankel, but it’s gonna cost you $50”. “Huh $50 for herring? OK if it’s gonna make me clever”…
He buys it and eats. “Um this is great but why so expensive?” asks Jack.
“See it’s already working on you replies Yankel!!!November 21, 2008 12:23 am at 12:23 am #1171722shtark bochurMember

A boss and three employees were hiking in the woods and got lost.
They only had enough provisions for three people.
The boss said “To be equitable, I’ll ask three questions on the same subject. If each of you gets one right, I’ll go hungry. Otherwise, the person who misses his question does”.
The employees agreed.
“Ok,” said the boss, “which large ship struck an iceberg in 1912 and sank?”
“The Titanic” answered the first employee.
“Fine,” said the boss, “Next question – how many people were lost?”
“1,500” replied the second employee.
“Correct” said the boss.
He turned to the third employee “Now for your question – what were their names?”November 27, 2008 12:21 pm at 12:21 pm #1171729

“So what are your plans?” the father asks the young man.
“I am a Torah scholar,” he replies.
“A Torah scholar. Hmmm,” the father says. “Admirable, but what will you do to provide a nice house for my daughter to live in, as she’s accustomed to?”
“I will study,” the young man replies, “and God will provide for us.”
“And how will you buy her a beautiful engagement ring, such as she deserves?” asks the father.
“I will concentrate on my studies,” the young man replies, “God will provide for us.”
“And children?” asks the father. “How will you support children?”
The conversation proceeds like this, and each time the father questions, the young idealist insists that God will provide.
Later, the mother asks, “How did it go, Honey?”
The father answers, “He has no job and no plans, but the good news is he thinks I’m God.”December 19, 2008 5:03 pm at 5:03 pm #1171738

An Englishman, Frenchman, Mexican, and Texan were flying across country on a small plane when the pilot comes on the loud speaker and says ” We’re having mechanical problems and the only way we can make it to the next airport is for 3 of you to open the door and jump, at least one of you can survive” The four open the door and look out below. The Englishman takes a deep breath and hollers “God Save The Queen” and jumps. The Frenchman gets really inspired and hollers “Viva La France” and he also jumps. This really pumps up the Texan so he hollers “Remember the Alamo” and he grabs the Mexican and throws him out of the plane.December 21, 2008 9:43 pm at 9:43 pm #1171752asdfghjklParticipant

A little old Jewish lady is flying out of New York City on her way to Miami Beach. She looks at the businessman sitting next to her and asks him, “Excuse me sir, but are you Jewish?”
The man responds politely, “No, ma’am, I’m not Jewish.”
After a little while she again queries him, “You’re really Jewish, aren’t you?”
Again he responds, “No ma’am, I am not Jewish.”
Barely 10 minutes later, the little old lady asks him once more, “Are you sure you’re not Jewish?”
To which in exasperation, and in a final effort to shut her up, he replies, “Okay. Yes, ma’am, I am Jewish.”
“Funny,” she says, looking puzzled, “you don’t look Jewish!”
Man says to G-d: “G-d, why did you make woman so beautiful?”

A Jewish man went to eat at a Chinese restaurant and started to wonder if there were any Chinese Jews. So, when the waiter came over to take his order, he asked, “Pardon me, but I’d like to know if there are any Chinese Jews?”

Why do women live longer than men?
Because G-d adds them the time that they wasted on parking.
A woman has the last word in any argument.
Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.
Why don’t women need drivers licenses?
There is no road between the bedroom and the kitchen.
How many men does it take to open a beer?
None, it should be opened when she brings it to you.
What’s worse than a male chauvinistic pig?
A women who won’t do what she’s told.
A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he wants. A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn’t want.
A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend. A successful woman is one who can find such a man.
A woman has the last word in any argument. Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.
So, G-d made Adam. Adam was walking around one day and realized that he was lonely, so he asked G-d for a companion. G-d said, “I can make a woman for you. She will cook and clean and do everything you ask her to. She will wait on you hand and foot. It’s going to cost you an arm and a leg, though.”
Adam said, “Well, what can I get for a rib?”December 22, 2008 7:45 pm at 7:45 pm #1171762myshadowMember
