Moe and Lenny Judging Favorably

Moe 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 Shabbat violator! Look at him running for that taxi.”

“Wait a minute,” Moe 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 reasons for Irving’s behavior. He is our friend and we must look for a favorable reason for his seemingly violation of the Shabbat laws.”

“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 Schwartzenweis.”

“Well, maybe his wife’s having a baby.”

“She had one last week.”

“Well, maybe he needs to visit her in the hospital.”

“She’s home.”

“Well, maybe he’s running to the hospital to get a doctor.”

“He is a doctor.”

“Well, maybe he need supplies from the hospital.”

“The hospital is a three minute walk in the opposite direction.”

“Well, maybe he forgot that it’s Shabbat!”

“Of course he knows it’s Shabbat. Didn’t you see his tie. It was his paisley beige 100% silk Giovani tie from Italy. He never wears it during the week.”

“Wow, you’re a really observant Jew! I didn’t even notice he was wearing a tie.”

“How could you not notice? Didn’t you see how it was caught on the back fender of the taxi?”

A New Type of Pinot

There are many “pinot” wines on the market: Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Grigio for starters.

There is also marketing research on a product for senior citizens from a new hybrid grape that acts as a diuretic and will reduce the number of trips an older man has to make to the bathroom during the night.

They will be marketing the new wine as…

Pinot More.

Other People’s Mistresses

A husband and wife were having dinner at a very fine restaurant when this absolutely stunning young woman comes over to their table, gives her husband a big kiss, then says she’ll see him later and walks away.

The wife glares at her husband and says, “Who the hell was that?”
“Oh,” replies the husband, “she’s my mistress.”
“Well, that’s the last straw,” says the wife. “I’ve had enough, I want a divorce!”
“I can understand that,” replies her husband, “but remember, if we get a divorce it will mean no more shopping trips to Paris, no more wintering in Barbados, no more summers in Tuscany, no more Merc and Lexus in the garage and no more yacht club. But the decision is yours.” Read more »

Friar Florists

There once was a group of Friars living on a mountain top, basically communing and doing the things that Friars do. It was discovered that the soil around their monastery was extraordinarily fertile, and many strange and amazingly wonderful plants and flowers grew in the area. The Friars decided to cultivate these plants and flowers and see what types of new plants they could come up with.

After a while, people heard about all the wondrous plant life the Friars were developing. They came from miles around to tour the Monastery area. The Friars, who were very business minded for a group of religious folk, decided to start charging the people money for the seeds and tours. Read more »

After Surgery

A man who had just undergone a very complicated operation kept complaining about a bump on his head and a terrible headache. Since his operation had been for an intestinal problem, there was no logical reason why he should be complaining of a headache.

Three women, two younger, and one senior citizen, were sitting naked in a sauna. Suddenly there was a beeping sound. The young woman pressed her forearm and the beep stopped.

The others looked at her questioningly.

“That was my pager”, she said. I have a microchip under the skin of my arm.

A few minutes later, a phone rang. The second young woman lifted her palm to her ear. When she finished, she explained, “that was my mobile phone. I have a microchip in my hand.” Read more »

London Underground

Considering I travel to london on a near weekly basis, I can (unfortunately) relate to this. I had the mp3 of the song for quite a while, but never knew who originally produced it, and now I know.

The London Underground song is by the comedy band Amateur Transplants (Dr. Adam Kay and Dr. Suman Biswas). Hats off, this is brilliant. Check out the video, actually if anyone knows of their own profile on google video or youtube, let me know so i can include their video. or you can check out the video on their site.
