Here are a couple of “zingers” sent to us by our Borscht Beltiest contributor, Capettawitz.
In the late 1930’s, Morris Rabinowitz fled his native Germany. He sold all his assets, converted it to gold, and then had 5 sets of solid gold false teeth made.
When he arrived in New York, the customs official was perplexed as to why anybody would have five sets of gold teeth. So Morris explained:
“We Jews have two separate sets of dishes for meat products and dairy products, but I am so kosher and religious I also have separate sets of teeth.”
The customs official shook his head and said,
“Well that accounts for two sets of teeth. What about the other three?”
Morris then said,
“Vell, us very religious Jews use separate dishes for Passover, but I am so religious I have separate teeth, one for meat and one for dairy food.”
The customs official slapped his head and then said,
“You must be a very religious man with separate teeth for food and dairy products and likewise for Passover. That accounts for four sets of teeth. What about the fifth set?”
“Vell, to tell you the truth, once in a while I like a ham sandwich.”
Here’s a another zing…zing…zinger! I warn you though, it’s shticky:
A Jewish guy in a London Hotel calls the operator and asks, in broken English with a heavy Lithuanian-Yiddish accent, for the number: 266419.
A short time later there is a knock at the door, and, when he opens the door, he sees two beautiful and sexy girls, who ask him:
“Are you the guy who ordered: “two shikses for one night?”
I know. I know. I’m just the messenger.
