I sampled the jokes of this book and I found myself, if not laughing, then smiling appreciatively at each one of them. The ones I read were not stupid, crude cruel jokes but rather mild self- deriding Jewish jokes.
I intend to read a lot more of them.
I think that anyone who wants a bit more amusement and laughter in their lives would do well to purchase this volume.
My favourite (by no means accurate wording) Four Jewish women are having coffee and comparing notes.
Sadie says, "My Myron's a doctor and earns $200,000 a year." "My David's a lawyer," says Hetty, "and earns $300,000 a year." "Lewis is in business," says Esther, "and earns over $400,000 a year."
"What does your son do Leah?"asked Sadie. "Oh my son's a rabbi," came the reply. Sadie and co. were appalled."What kind of a job is that for a good Jewish boy?"
As is always the case with books of jokes, some appeal to the reader and others do not. Inevitably, therefore, this book can be a hit and miss affair. Be that as it may, there's a lot here to make you smile and every now then, a laugh-out-loud contribution. My advice: to get the best out of it, dip into it in small visits.
The book has a good contents section, and the jokes are arranged by theme. So if you want to find something witty for the speech / event / meeting coming up, there should be something here to help you.
A large compilation, well organised. Good fun. Worth owning.
The jokes are divided into a number of categories ranging from 'Early Years' & 'Family Events' to 'Travel & Technology' and 'Final Years.' There is also a
number of 'extras' which include a Glossary of Yiddish and Hebrew Terms which is helpful to us 'goyims.'
Some of the jokes are classic non-Jewish jokes which have been given a Jewish flavor but I have no problems with that. There are no Arab or
Middle Eastern jokes (pity) as the author has tried to be scrupulously fair.
More than 400 pages of laughs so 'never mind the quality, feel the width!
Very nicely put together, in categories that make it easy to scoot around. A real hoot. Something to dip in and out of.
