Forget Me Not

There was an elderly couple who in their old age noticed that they were getting a lot more forgetful, so they decided to go to the doctor. The doctor told them that they should start writing things down so they don't forget. They went home and the old lady told her husband to get her a bowl of ice cream. “You might want to write it down,” she said. The husband said, “No, I can remember that you want a bowl of ice cream.” She then told her husband she wanted a bowl of ice cream with whipped cream. “Write it down,” she told him, and again he said, “No, no, I can remember: you want a bowl of ice cream with whipped cream.” Then the old lady said she wants a bowl of ice cream with whipped cream and a cherry on top. “Write it down,” she told her husband and again he said, “No, I got it. You want a bowl of ice cream with whipped cream and a cherry on top. “So, he goes to get the ice cream and spends an unusually long time in the kitchen, over 30 minutes. He comes out to his wife and hands her a plate of eggs and bacon. The old wife stares at the plate for a moment, then looks at her husband and asks, “Where's the toast?”

A True Story

This is the true story of George Phillips of Meridian, Mississippi, who was going to bed when his wife told him that he'd left the light on in the shed. George opened the door to go turn off the light but saw there were people in the shed in the process of stealing things.

He immediately phoned the police, who asked, “Is someone in your house?” and George said, “No,” and explained the situation. Then they explained that all patrols were busy, and that he should simply lock his door and an officer would be there when available.

George said, “Okay,”hung up, counted to 30, and phonedthe police again.

“Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people in my shed. Well, you don't have to worry about them now because I've just shot them all.”

Then he hung up. Within five minutes three squad cars, an Armed Response unit, and an ambulance showed up. Of course, the police caught the burglars red-handed.

One of the policemen said to George, “I thought you said that you'd
shot them!”

George said, “I thought you said there was nobody available!”

Like A Surgeon

The Rosenblums invited their friends the Kushners for Shabbat dinner where they planned to serve a feast including a whole stuffed turkey. Dr. Kushner was a well-known surgeon so Heshie Rosenblum made quite the show when he started carving up the Turkey.

“How am I doing, doc? How do you like that technique? I'd make a pretty good surgeon, don't you think?”

When Heshie was finished and the slices of turkey were distributed, Dr. Kushner spoke up: “Anybody can take them apart, Heshie. Now let's see you put them back together again.”

Starting Over

Moishe arrived home at around 5:30pm as usual. Soon after, he discovered that it was not one of his wife Miriam’s better days. Nothing Moishe said or did was right.

By 7:30pm, things had not changed, so Moishehad an idea.
He suggested that he go outside, pretend that he had just gotten home, and start all over again. Miriam agreed.

Moishe went outside, came back in and, with a big smile, announced, “Honey, I'm home!”

“And just where have you been?” Miriam replied sharply.
“It's after seven thirty!”
