Subj: Converting To Catholicism And Eating Steak (S561c)
From: Ossama's Laugh on 5/11/98
and From: redcatt on 10/19/2007
A Jewish man moves into a Catholic
Friday the Catholics go crazy because, while they're
morosely eating fish, the Jew is outside barbecuing steaks.
So the Catholics work on the Jew to convert him.
Finally, by threats and pleading,
the Catholics succeed.
They take the Jew to a priest who sprinkles holy water on
the Jew and intones:
....."Born a Jew
......Raised a Jew
......Now a Catholic."
The Catholics are ecstatic.
No more delicious, but
maddening smells every Friday evening. But the next
Friday evening, neighbors sat down to eat fish and were
disturbed by the smell of roast beef from the neighboring
house. They went over to talk to the new Catholic because
he knew that he was not supposed to eat beef on Fridays.
When they saw him, he was sprinkling catchup on the beef
saying, "You were born a cow, you were raised a cow, but
now you are a fish."

Three sons of a Yiddishe Mama
left their homeland, went abroad
and prospered. They discussed the gifts they were able to
give their old mother.
AVRAHAM, the first, said:
"I built a big house for our mother."
MOISHE, the second, said: "I sent her a Mercedes with a driver."
DAVID, the youngest, said: "You remember how our mother enjoyed
reading the bible. Now she can't see very well. I sent her
a remarkable parrot that recites the whole bible -- Mama just

Soon thereafter, a letter of
thanks came from their mother.
AVRAHAM, she said, the house you built is so huge. I live only
in one room, but I have to clean the whole house. MOISHE, she

Subj: Hebrew Writing (S475c)
From: mbucher on 98-04-19
and From: auntiegah on 2/20/2006
(Also see 'Archaelogical Dig In Israel' in Jewish2)
A team of archaeologists was
excavating in Israel when they
came upon a cave. Written on the wall of the cave were the
following symbols in order of appearance.
1. A dog
2. A donkey
3. A shovel
4. A fish
5. A Star of David
They decided that this was a
unique find and the writings
were at least more than three thousand years old. They
chopped out the piece of stone and had it brought to the
museum where archaeologists from all over the world came
to study the ancient symbols.
They held a huge meeting after
months of conferences to
discuss what they could agree was the meaning of the
markings. The President of their Society stood up and
pointed at the first drawing and said, "This looks like
a dog. We can judge that this was a highly intelligent
race as they knew how to have animals for companionship.
To prove this statement you can see that the next symbol
resembles a donkey, so, they were even smart enough to
have animals help them till the soil. The next drawing
looks like a shovel of some sort, which means they even
had tools to help them.
Even further proof of their high
intelligence is the fish
which means that that they had a famine that hit the earth
whereby the food didn't grow, they would take to the sea
for food. The last symbol appears to be the Star of David
which means they were evidently Hebrews."
The audience applauded enthusiastically
and the President
smiled and said, "I'm glad to see that you are all in full
agreement with our interpretations."
Suddenly a little old Jewish
man stood up in the back of
the room and said, "I object to every word. The explanation
of what the writings say is quite simple. First of all,
everyone knows that Hebrews don't read from left to right,
but from right to left...... Now, look again..... It now

Subj: A Jew is Knighted (DU)
From: humorlist-digest V2 #93 on 98-04-15
During one of my many trips to
London, I became friends
with a very wealthy, yet very modest, Jewish chap named
Hyman Goldfarb. On one visit, Hy told me that because of
his large donations to charities through the years, the
queen wanted to knight him, but he was going to turn it
"That's a great honor," I said.
"Why would you turn it
"Because during the ceremony
you have to say something
in Latin," he said. "And I don't wish to bother studying
Latin just for that."
"So say something in Hebrew.
The queen wouldn't know
"Brilliant," Hy complimented me, "but what should I say?"
"Remember that question the son
asks the father on the
first night of Passover?... Can you say that in Hebrew?"
"Of course," he said. "Ma nishtana
ha leila hazeh. Thank
you, old sport, I shall become a knight."
At the ceremony Hy waited his
turn while several of the
other honorees went before the queen. Finally they called
his name. He knelt before Her Majesty, she placed her
sword on one shoulder and then on the other, and motioned
for Hy to speak.
Out came "Ma nishtana ha leila hazeh."
The queen turned to her husband
and said, "Why is this
knight different from all the other knights?"
Note: Happy Passover to all!
For those unfamiliar,
Passover is a Jewish holiday, lasting eight days and
honoring the Jews freedom (and exodus) from enslavement
by the Egyptians thousands of years ago. On the first
and second nights of Passover, a festive meal called a
sedar is held, and the story is retold during the meal.
One part of the sedar calls for the youngest child to

Subj: Hebronics (S53, S867)
From: humorlist-digest V2 #20 on 98-01-21
and From: AFine963 on 8/15/2013
The New York City Public Schools
have officially declared
Jewish English, now dubbed Hebonics, as a second language.
Backers of the move say the city schools are the first in
the nation to recognize Hebonics as a valid language and a
significant attribute of American culture. According to
Howard Ashland, linguistics professor at Brooklyn College
and renowned Hebonics scholar, the sentence structure of
Hebonics derives from middle and eastern European language
patterns, as well as Yiddish.
Professor Shulman explains, "In
Hebonics, the response to
any question is usually another question with a complaint
that is either implied or stated.
Thus 'How are you?' may be answered,
should I be,
with my bad feet?'
Shulman says that Hebonics is
a superb linguistic vehicle
for expressing sarcasm or skepticism. An example is the
repetition of a word with "sh" or "shm" at the beginning:
"Mountains, shmountains. Stay away. You should want a
Another Hebonics pattern is moving
the subject of a
sentence to the end, with its pronoun at the beginning:
"It's beautiful, that dress."
Shulman says one also sees the
Hebonics verb moved to the
end of the sentence. Thus the response to a remark such
as "He's slow as a turtle," could be: "Turtle, shmurtle!
Like a fly in Vaseline he walks."
Shulman provided the following
examples from his best-
selling textbook, Switched-On Hebonics:
Question: "What time is it?"
English answer: "Sorry, I don't know."
Hebonic response: "What am I, a clock?"
Remark: "I hope things turn out
English answer: "Thanks."
Hebonic response: "I should be so lucky!"
Remark: "Hurry up. Dinner's ready."
English answer: "Be right there."
Hebonic response: "Alright already, I'm coming. What's
with the 'hurry' business? Is there a fire?"
Remark: "I like the tie you gave
me; I wear it all the time."
English answer: "Glad you like it."
Hebonic response: "So what's the matter; you don't like the
other ties I gave you?"
Remark: "Sarah and I are engaged."
English answer: "Congratulations!
Hebonic response: "She could stand to lose a few pounds."
Question: "Would you like to
go riding with us?"
English answer: "Just say when."
Hebonic response: "Riding, shmiding! Do I look like a cowboy?"
To the guest of honor at a birthday
English answer: "Happy birthday."
Hebonic response: "A year smarter you should become."
Remark: "A beautiful day."
English answer: "Sure is."
Hebonic response: "So the sun is out; what else is new?"
Remark: "How are things?"
English answer: Anything can happen
Hebonic response: "It is never so bad, it can't get worse"
Answering a phone call from a
English answer: "It's been a while since you called."
Hebonic response: "You didn't wonder if I'm dead already?"

very beautiful young lady walks in and sits at a table. He
is immediately lust-struck and decides that he must have
her. He leans over to the bartender and asks if the
bartender has any spanish-fly in the back. The bartender
says he will check and comes back a couple of minutes
later with a small packet of white powder. The bartender
says to the man "this is not Spanish-fly, we are all out
of that but this is just as good. This is Jewish-fly,
and it is guaranteed to get her over here within twenty
minutes after she takes it!" The man forks over his $10
and asks the bartender to put the Jewish-fly into a
champagne cocktail and deliver it to the gorgeous creature
with his compliments.
The woman drinks the champagne
cocktail and looks at our
hero rather disinterestedly but about twenty minutes later
she slinks off her barstool. She saunters across the room
toward our hero in a most seductive manner, oozing
sensuality. Our hero is terrifically excited. She reaches
him and puts one lithe arm around his shoulders and leans
in close to his ear. He can feel her breath on his neck
