One day, Chaim Yankel was trying to pull out of a parking place but to his horror, he hit the bumper of the car parked in front of him. To make matters worse, the incident was witnessed by a handful of people waiting for a bus.
So Chaim Yankel got out of his car, inspected the damage carefully, took out a pen and a piece of paper and wrote a note, which he then left under the wiper blade of the other car.August 10, 2015 2:33 am at 2:33 am #1202774August 10, 2015 2:33 am at 2:33 am #1202775August 10, 2015 2:34 am at 2:34 am #1202776August 16, 2015 1:38 am at 1:38 am #1202777👑RebYidd23Participant

Melvin Slippowitz used to say that he was the unluckiest person he knew. He had never won anything or had anything good happen to him in his entire life. Until now.
Melvin was clearing out his attic when he came upon an old painting and a violin. Thinking they might be valuable, he took them to the auction house to be valued.
After studying them, the appraiser said, “Mr. Slippowitz, I have good news and I have bad news.”
“What’s the good news?” Melvin asked.
“The good news is that you have a Stradivarius and a Picasso,” replied the appraiser.August 20, 2015 4:26 am at 4:26 am #1202781
Moishe Rubinstein was driving to meet his friend Chaim for supper when he came to a bridge under construction. The road narrowed to one lane, with a red light at either end. He stopped at the red light on his side and when it turned green, he started driving again. Halfway through, he met another car coming towards him.
The driver leaned out his window and shouted, “I don’t back up for idiots!”
Putting his car into reverse, Moishe called back, “No problem; I do.”August 20, 2015 4:28 am at 4:28 am #1202783

Chaim Rosenberg had a great idea. He went down to the department of motor vehicles and asked to get a personalized license plate with his wedding anniversary on it.
A few hours later, the clerk recognized Chaim again waiting in my line. When his turn came, Chaim approached and said somewhat sheepishly, “I need to change the numbers on that plate application.”August 20, 2015 4:51 am at 4:51 am #1202789

The Epsteins were mourning the passing of their beloved Bubbie Bayla. Bubbie Bayla always had a soft spot for Chaim Yankel, a perpetually unsuccessful businessman in their community who had recently opened a funeral home, so the Epsteins decided to give him the business.
When it was time to settle the account, David Epstein marched into Chaim Yankel’s office, livid.
“Calm down Mr. Epstein,” said Chaim Yankel. “You don’t need to get do upset!’
“I don’t?” replied David Epstein. “Would you be upset if you received a bill from the funeral home, where on the bottom of the receipt it reads, ‘Thank you. Please come again'”?August 20, 2015 4:57 am at 4:57 am #1202794

A businessman flying first class on El Al sitting next to a parrot. The plane takes off, and the parrot orders a Glenlivet, neat. The businessman asks for a Coke.
Later, they order another round. Again, the bird gives the crew grief for being slow, and the businessman joins in: “Yeah, the service stinks!”
Just then, the El Al flight attendant grabs the pair, opens the hatch, and throws them out of the plane. As they hurtle toward the ground, the parrot says to the terrified man, “Wow, that took a lot of guts for a guy with no wings.”August 20, 2015 5:00 am at 5:00 am #1202796

Sergeant: “And what about her build?”
Sergeant: “What color are her eyes sir?”
Sergeant: “And what about the color of her hair?”
Moishe: “It changes all the time depending on what hairdresser she goes to.”
Sergeant: “What clothes was she wearing when you last saw her?”
Sergeant: “When she left to go shopping did she go by car?”
Moishe: “Yes she did.”
Sergeant: “And what is the make of the car?”

A rabbi, a priest and a minister are discussing when life begins.
The priest says: “In our religion, life begins at conception.”
The minister says: “We disagree. We believe that life begins when the fetus is viable outside of the mother’s womb.”

During his talk, the captain asks, “OK, here’s an easy question for you. Suppose you saw an employee fall overboard. What should you do?”
David, one of the employees, puts his hand up and replies, “I would shout out loud, “MAN OVERBOARD, MAN OVERBOARD.”
“Correct,” says the captain. “And what would you do if you saw it was one of your managers that had just fallen overboard?”
Always honest, David replies, “It would depend on which manager.”August 20, 2015 11:59 am at 11:59 am #1202818August 21, 2015 6:15 am at 6:15 am #1202819YomKippurKotonMember
3 logicians walk into a bar. The bartender asks them, “would you all like a drink?”
The first one says “I don’t know.”
The second says “I’m also unsure.”
The third says “yes.”August 21, 2015 1:21 pm at 1:21 pm #1202820
The first two were certainly correct.
The third one drew an unsubstantiated conclusion which may or not be correct.August 21, 2015 1:33 pm at 1:33 pm #1202821☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
The third one was also correct.August 21, 2015 2:43 pm at 2:43 pm #1202822
He had no knowledge of whether or not they wanted a drink.
Had the first one wanted a drink he would have responded to the question: “I’m not sure”.
And had he not wanted a drink he would have responded also; “I’m not sure”August 21, 2015 2:47 pm at 2:47 pm #1202824
It’s true the third one MIGHT be correct. But he might also be incorrect.
(Unless you know those guys.)August 21, 2015 2:47 pm at 2:47 pm #1202825☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
Had the first or second not wanted a drink, the answer to the question, “would you all like a drink?” would have been, “no”.August 21, 2015 3:05 pm at 3:05 pm #1202826
I DO know the first two guys. They were very poor logicians.August 21, 2015 3:10 pm at 3:10 pm #1202827
Besides, they were in Alabama and certainly would have interpreted “you all” as in “y’all” which implies he was asking them individually.August 21, 2015 3:12 pm at 3:12 pm #1202828
It will be a cold day in December, Daas Yochid, when your logical mind surpasses mine.August 21, 2015 3:15 pm at 3:15 pm #1202829
Admit defeat now and you will not have to suffer further humiliation.August 21, 2015 3:21 pm at 3:21 pm #1202830
Your times up.
If they were good logicians, since it was impossible for the first two to answer the question as referring to the group, they would have assumed the bartender was using the language colloquially, and asking them individually. Therefore the third WAS correct.
