An elderly man refuses to leave for the air raid shelter until he can find his dentures. His wife yells at him,
“What, you think they are dropping sandwiches?”
Q: Is one permitted to ride in an airplane on Sabbath?
A: Yes, as long as your seat belt remains fastened. In this case,
it is considered that you are not riding, you are wearing the plane.
Israelis view of themselves:
An Israeli, a Brit, a Russian, a Vietnamese man
and an American are sitting in a restaurant.
A reporter comes by and asks. “Excuse me, but can I get your opinion
on the recent grain shortage in the third world?”
The Brit asks: “What’s ‘shortage’?”
The Vietnamese asks: “What’s ‘grain’?”
The Russian asks: “What’s an ‘opinion’?”
the American asks: “What’s the third world?”
The Israeli asks: “What’s ‘excuse me’?”
…and you ask?
