Jewish Accents

As with most ethnicities, jokes have often mocked Jewish accents, sometimes gently, other times, not so much. One of the kinder examples is:

One early winter morning Rabbi Bloom was walking beside the canal when he saw a dog in the water, trying hard to stay afloat. It looked so sad and exhausted that Rabbi Bloom jumped in, and after a struggle, managed to bring it out alive.

A passer-by who saw this remarked, “that was very brave of you! You must love animals. Are you a vet?”

Rabbi Bloom replied, “And vhat did you expect? Of course I’m a-vet! I’m a-freezing cold as vell!”

At least grin…even if ever so slightly.
