Good Cough

Morris developed a terrible cough while he was in school. He went to the nurse, and after she gave him some cough medication, she told him to return the next day.

The following day, Morris returned to the nurse’s office.

“Your cough sounds much better,” the nurse said.

“It should,” replied Morris, “I’ve been practicing all night.”

Simple Math

Teacher:If I give you two rabbits, and two rabbits, and another two rabbits, how many rabbits have you got?

Carol:Seven!

Teacher: No, listen carefully again.
If I give you two rabbits, and two rabbits, and another two rabbits,
how many rabbits have you got?

Carol:  Seven!

Teacher: Let's try this another way.
If I give you two apples, and two apples, and another two apples,
how many apples have you got?

Carol:  Six.

Teacher:Good. Now if I give you two rabbits, and two rabbits, and another two rabbits, how many rabbits have you got?

Carol:  Seven!

is seven?

Picture Perfect

Little Joey asked his father, “Pop, do you have an extra picture of yourself? I need it for a
school project.”

He gave Little Joey a picture he had lying around without thinking to ask what the project was.

A few days later Little Joey’s father was in his son’s classroom for a parent-teacher meeting when he noticed his face pinned to a mural the students had created.

The title of their project was: “The oldest thing in my house.”

Puzzle Puzzler

Moishe was having trouble understanding the complicated flow of the Talmud, so one of the rabbis suggested that he start doing some puzzles, which might help him develop his intellect.

Exasperated after a few hours with no success, Moishe called his friend Shimmy. “Shimmy, please come over to my house and help me. The rabbi told me to do jigsaw puzzles so I got one but I can't figure out how to get it started.”

Shimmy asked, “What is it supposed to be when it's finished?” Moishe said, “According to the picture on the box, it's a tiger.”

Shimmy decided to go over and help with the puzzle. Moishe let Shimmy in and showed him the puzzle spread all over the table. Shimmy studied the pieces for a moment, then looked at the box, then turned to Moishe and said, “First of all, no matter what we do, we're not going to be able to assemble these pieces into anything resembling a tiger.”

Then Shimmy patted his friend on the shoulder and said, “Second, I want you to relax. Let's have a nice cup of hot chocolate and then,” he sighed, “let's put all these Frosted Flakes back in the box.”

The Library in Chelm

Chaim Yankel, one of the less intelligent residents of the famed city of Chelm, walks up to the counter and says: “I'd like a burger, fries, and a Diet Coke.”

The man behind the counter says, “This is a library!”

“Oy, how silly of me,” says Chaim Yankel. Then he whispers,
“I'd like a burger, fries, and a Diet Coke.”

Doctor Visit

Mr. Cooperman hadn’t been feeling well so he went to visit Dr. Rosen. The doctor examined Mr. Cooperman, left the room, and then came back with three different bottles of pills.

Dr. Rosen said, “Take the green pill with a big glass of water when you wake up. Take the blue pill with a big glass of water after you eat lunch. Then just before going to bed, take the red pill with another big glass of water.”

Startled to be put on so much medicine, Mr. Cooperman stammered, “Wow Doc, exactly what is my problem?”

Dr. Rosen replied, “You're not drinking enough water.”
