Old Jews Telling Jokes

Oy vey!

Oy vey!

A couple is in a store, and the woman, a kleptomaniac, has stolen a can of peaches. The judge tells her, “there were six peaches, so you have to go to jail for six nights to learn your lesson.” Her husband stands up and says, “your honor, she also stole a can of peas!”

Ah, the Jewish joke. Classic, delightful, and toches-slappingly raunchy. It’s as delish as matzoh ball soup, but nowhere near as bland. With Woody Allen and Larry David aging and no successors showing up with the same breed of old-country meets new problems, our kvetch-a-day role models are becoming less and less mainstream.

So we document and we celebrate and we turn to oldjewstellingjokes.com … and we enjoy a little schtik before it goes kaput!
