The doctor showed Yossi the eye chart, displaying the letters ICNRDTHT.

“Can you read that?” the doctor asked.

“Wait, what?” the Doctor said, confused for a moment. Then he smiled. “Ah…I think someone hasbeen spending too much time staring at Talmud pages with no vowels!”

Today’s Special

While traveling through an unfamiliar town, Jimmy, who was starving, spotted a small restaurant. A sign said, “Special: Vegetable Soup with Fried Chicken and Grilled Vegetables.”Jimmy walked in and requested the special.
A few minutes later, he called over to the waiter, furious. “Is this what you call a special?!” he asked. “The sign said ‘grilled vegetables,’ but the vegetables are baked. It said ‘fried chicken’ but the chicken isn’t fried!” The waiter said, “My friend, that’s what makes it so special.”

Why “abbreviated” is such a large word.

Why doctors and attorneys call what they do “practice.”

Why a man who invests all your money is called a “broker.”
