The History of the Air Conditioner
The three Goldberg brothers, Norman, Hyman, and Maximillian invented and developed the first automobile air-conditioner.
The 3 brothers walked into old man Henry Ford’s office and sweet-talked his secretary into telling him that 3 gentlemen were there with the most exciting innovation in the auto industry since the electric starter.
Henry was curious and invited them into his office. They refused and instead asked that he come out to the parking lot to their car.
The old man got very excited and invited them back to the office, where he offered them 3 million dollars for the patent.
The brothers refused saying they would settle for 2 million but they wanted the recognition by having a label “The Goldberg Air-Conditioner” on the dashboard of each car that it was installed in.
Now old man Ford was more than just a little bit anti-Semitic, and there was no way he was going to put the Goldbergs’ name on 2 million Ford cars.
They haggled back and forth for about 2 hours and finally agreed on 4 million dollars and that just their first names would be shown.
And so, even today, all Ford air-conditioners show on the controls the names “Norm”, “Hi”, and “Max”.December 14, 2011 12:22 am at 12:22 am #1201982

Shmuel and his long suffering wife Golda are lining up in their local bank when, oy vey, two gonifs (thiefs) run into the bank. Each is wearing a handkerchief around his mouth and nose and each has is wielding a gun.
One of them points his gun at the customers and shouts out, “Listen all of you, stop screaming or else!”
There is instant silence. His colleague then runs over to a cashier and yells at him, “put all the money you have in your till on the counter.”
The cashier immediately complies and the gonif starts to fill up his sack with the money. But as he’s doing this, his handkerchief slips off.
As he repositions his handkerchief, he says to the cashier, “I’m sorry to do this, but you must have seen my face.” He then shoots him.
Then turning to the now fear stricken customers, he says, “I hope no one else saw my face.”
After a few moments of silence, a voice is heard. It’s Golda’s. She shouts out, “I think my husband Shmuel might have caught a glimpse of you.”December 14, 2011 12:50 am at 12:50 am #1201984AinOhdMilvadoParticipant

A little girl asked her mother, “How did the human race appear?”
Two days later the girl asked her father the same question.. The father answered, “Many years ago there were monkeys from which the human race evolved.”
The confused girl returned to her mother and said, “Mom, how is it possible that you told me the human race was created by God, and Dad said they developed from monkeys?”
The mother answered, “Well, dear, it is very simple. I told you about my side of the family and your father told you about his.”
David received a parrot for his birthday. The parrot was fully grown with a bad attitude and worse vocabulary. Every other word was an obscenity. In a moment of desperation, David put the bird in the freezer, just for a few moments. He heard the bird squawk and kick and scream-then suddenly, there was quiet.
David was frightened that he might have hurt the bird and quickly opened the freezer door. The parrot calmly stepped out and said “I believe I may have offended you with my rude language and actions. I’ll endeavor at once to correct my behavior. I really am truly sorry and beg your forgiveness.” David was astonished at the bird’s change in attitude and was about to ask what had made such a dramatic change when the parrot continued, “May I ask what did the chicken do?”

“But I’m a college graduate,” the young man replied indignantly.
“Oh, I’m sorry. I didn’t know that,” said the manager. “Here, give me the broom — I’ll show you how.”
To impress his date, the young man took her to a very chic Italian restaurant. After sipping some fine wine, he picked up the menu and ordered. “We’ll have the Giuseppe Spomdalucci,” he said. “Sorry, sir,” said the waiter. “That”s the owner.”

The hotel clerk responded, “It was me!”
The Englishman thought that was hilarious. He couldn’t wait to get home and tell this funny joke to his family and friends in England.
When he arrived home they met him at the airport and he asked them: “My mom and dad had a baby. It wasn’t my brother. It wasn’t my sister. Who was it?”
His friends thought and thought about it until they gave up. So he told them, “It was a hotel clerk I met in New York.”

Morris and Lenny are strolling home from shul one Saturday morning. Suddenly a cab speeds past, and their friend, Irving, is running frantically behind it, flailing his arms wildly.
“Well,” said Lenny, “I never imagined our good friend Irving was a Sabbath violator! Look at him running for that taxi.”
“Wait a minute,” Morris replied. “Didn’t you read that book I lent you, ‘The Other Side of the Story’, about the command to judge other people favorably? I’ll bet we can think of hundreds of excuses for Irving’s behavior.”
“Yeah, like what?”
“Maybe he’s sick and needs to go to the hospital.”
“Come on! He was running 60 miles an hour after that cab – he’s healthier than Arnold Schwarzenegger.”
“Well, maybe his wife’s having a baby.”
“She had one last week.”
“Well, maybe he needs to visit her in the hospital.”
“Well, maybe he’s running to the hospital to get a doctor.”
“He is a doctor.”
“Well, maybe he needs supplies from the hospital.”
“The hospital is a three minute walk in the opposite direction.”
“Well, maybe he forgot that it’s Shabbos!”

A young blonde woman goes to an office for a job interview. The interviewer decides to start with the basics. “So, miss, can you tell us your age, please?”
The blonde counts carefully on her fingers for about 3 seconds before replying “Ehh… 23”.
The interviewer tries another straight forward one to break the ice. “And can you tell us your height, please?”
The young lady stands up and produces a measuring tape from her handbag. She then traps one end under her foot and extends the tape to the top of her head. She checks the measurement and announces, “Five foot three!”
This isn’t looking good so the interviewer goes for the real basics. “And ehh, just to confirm for our records, your name please?”
The blonde bobs her head from side to side for about twenty seconds, mouthing something silently to herself, before replying “Barbara”.
The interviewer is completely baffled at this stage, so he asks “Just out of curiosity, miss. We can understand your counting on your fingers to work out your age, and the measuring tape for your height is obvious, but what were you doing when we asked you your name?”
“Ohh that!” replies the blonde, “I was just running through ‘Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you…'”January 13, 2012 5:40 am at 5:40 am #1202013

The Jewish Olympics
After reading through the list of this year’s Olympic events, it was found that the Olympic Committee has made some significant changes. Some of the less-publicized events of particular interest to the world’s Jewish communities, that you may have missed, may be the following:
A sound-enhanced Pole Vault competition, the vaulter must clear the bar then yell “Oy” upon hitting the foam pad below. Any heights cleared without an “Oy” will be considered a fault. Points will be added for more enthusiastic exclamations of “Oy,” such as “Oy vay iz mir”
Taking place in an Olympic sized mikvah, this event is sure to make a splash.
The goal here is simple: to create the ideal matzah ball. Each team will cook a two liter bowl of matzah ball soup, from scratch. The three winning batches will be fed to the athletes recovering in the infirmary. The toughest matzah balls will be used in the shot put competition.
This year’s Triathlon will involve one pound of shnitzel and a serving of tsimmes. The athlete must cook the shnitzel and tsimmes (first part), say a bruchah before eating this kosher meal (second part), and then run a marathon (third part). If the contender forgets to say the bruchah, he/she will be disqualified, but will still be required to run the marathon.
In addition to the aforementioned events, this year’s Games will feature some experimental, non-medal competition:
A kosher version of horseshoes, the winner is he/she that first lands a bagel on each of the seven branches of the chanukiah.
The accountant or bookkeeper that balances my mother’s checkbook in the shortest amount of time will be declared winner.
How long does it take you to remove all the chometz from your house before Pesach? In this competition, each participant must rid a miniature shul of all of its challot, and replace them with matzot.
Commonly referred to as the world’s greatest athlete, this year’s decathlete is actually a minyan of ten daveners. Each member of the group will begin davening with ten volumes of Mishnah on his back. Every minute, another volume will be added until a team member can no longer angle the body enough for a complete daven. While yeshiva buchers in Jerusalem are favored to win this event, other teams have promised not to bow down to the opposition – which could be a problem for this particular event.
This year’s Dream Team will not consist of the USA’s highly favored men’s basketball team, but rather, an overpriced team of psychoanalysts that will have three, one hour office visits to analyze and interpret the dreams of this year’s Olympic hopefuls.

An overweight blonde went to see her doctor for some advice. The doctor advised that she run ten miles a day for thirty days. This, he promised, would help her lose as many as twenty pounds.
The blonde followed the doctor’s advice, and, after thirty days, she was pleased to find that she had indeed lost the whole twenty pounds. She phoned the doctor and thanked him for the wonderful advice which produced such effective results.
At the end of the conversation, however, she asked one last question:
“Since I am now 300 miles away, how do I get home?”January 13, 2012 2:50 pm at 2:50 pm #1202016
Gonif al pi halacha:
Sammy stole the Rabbi’s gold watch. Feeling bad, he approached the Rabbi the next day and said ‘Rabbi I stole somebody’s watch’.
‘But that is assur. Return it immediately’ said the Rabbi.
‘Do you want it’ asked Sammy.
‘No of course I dont’ retorted the Rabbi.
‘But Rabbi, the owner said he does not want it’ replied Sammy.
‘In that case you may keep it’ answered the RabbiJanuary 13, 2012 3:23 pm at 3:23 pm #1202017
The Small shtetl had a shortage of men of marriageable age. So when the Choson’s horse and wagon arrived from a distant town, there were two mothers-in-law waiting for him, each claiming him as their own. The Rabbi was called and he heard vociferous and heated arguments from both sides. After contemplating what to do, he smiled and said “You cannot agree on this so we will cut him in half and you will have to share him.” The first woman said “That is a wonderful idea. I agree wholeheartedly”. The second woman said “No, give him to the other lady”. The Rabbi stood up and announced, “The lady willing to cut him up she is the real mother-in-law!” ☺January 19, 2012 7:47 pm at 7:47 pm #1202019
A Jewish man buys a fabulous home in Beverly Hills, California. He brings in a local workman to decorate the place. When the job is finished, the homeowner is delighted but realizes that he’s forgotten to put mezuzahs on the doors.
He goes out and buys 50 mezuzahs (mezuzot!) and asks the decorator to place them on the right hand side of each door except bathrooms.
He’s really worried that the decorator will chip the paint work or won’t put them up correctly. However, when he comes back a
few hours later, he sees that the job has been carried out to his entire satisfaction. He’s so pleased that he gives the decorator a bonus.
As the decorator is walking out of the door he says, “Glad you’re happy with the job.” “By the way, I took out all the warranties from the little boxes and left them on your table.January 21, 2012 11:19 pm at 11:19 pm #1202020
Two men are walking together. After a bit of time one asked the other:
“I notice that your are limping. Have you got problems with your feet?”
“No” said the other, “the sole of one of my shoes has come loose, and I can’t afford to have it fixed, or buy new shoes”.
“Oy” said the first one, taking a thick wad of $20 notes out of his pocket “I can’t let you go further like that. Let me help you”.
“No” said the other “how could I accept that from you?”
“Come on” came the reply “isn’t that what good friends are for? Please let me help you”.
“Well, I’m very grateful” said the second one.
Without any further ado, the first one slipped the rubber band of the wad, gave it to his friend and said: “Here, put this around your shoe. It should keep the sole in place”!January 24, 2012 8:24 pm at 8:24 pm #1202021
The International Vaad Ha Tznius has issued the following guidelines regarding laundry.
It has come to our attention that many families, including those who pride themselves on following all aspects of halacha, are regularly not conforming to proper Tznius guidelines.
Unbelievably, many, many families are washing men’s and women’s clothing together at the same time in the same washing machine. This is an unprecedented breach of Tznius.!!!
How could anyone think that one is allowed to wash men’s and women’s undergarments at the same time in the same washing load?!!!
What has our nation come to when people have fallen to such a low level? For shame!!! This practice must stop!!!!
Given this we are issuing the following guidelines regarding the doing of laundry.
1. Ideally each observant home should have two washing machines and two dryers – one washing machine and one dryer should be used exclusively for men’s clothing and the other washing machine and dryer should be used exclusively for women’s clothing.
2. In the event that a family cannot afford to have two washing machines and two dryers, the following rules should be adhered to.
a. Under no circumstances should men’s cloths be washed in the same machine as women’s clothing at the same time. They should, of course, also be dried separately.
b. After doing a load of men’s clothing, one should run the washing machine through a complete cycle without any cloths in it using hot water. Then one may wash women’s clothing in this machine. The same procedure should, of course, be followed after washing a load of women’s clothing, namely, run a complete cycle using hot water without any cloths in the machine. Then one may wash men’s clothing in the machine.
c. After drying a load of men’s clothing the dryer should be allowed to cool off completely. After this, one may use the dryer for drying women’s cloths. The same applies after drying a load of women’s clothing before using the dryer for men’s clothing. It is not enough to let the dryer cool below Yad So Ledas Bo. The dryer must be completely cooled off.
Our forefathers lived in a land that was between two rivers – the Tigris and the Euphrates. The reason is obvious to anyone who thinks into it a bit. One river was used to wash women’s clothing and the other to wash men’s clothing. Surely we can continue this tradition by observing the rules stated above.
We are confident that everyone who takes Yahadus seriously will abide by the guidelines stated above.
With Torah greetings,
Names withheld by request due to concern that our wives will stop doing our laundry.January 25, 2012 12:40 am at 12:40 am #1202022Boro Park GirlMember
