Some Jewish Humor.

The first was in the Amy Chua, Jed Rubenfeld book, The Triple Package on page 107.  This is from historian Lawrence J. Epstein.

A Jewish woman is elected President of the United States.  She wants her mother to come to the inauguration.  Her mother complains about what will she wear, because it will be cold.  She thinks her daughter is mad for wanting the job, with all its issues.

At the inauguration, as her daughter is taking the oath, Mom turns to the Senator next to her and says, “See that girl up there?  Her brother’s a doctor.”

My Dad, Marvin Charton, got something like that when he got his PhD in Chemistry.  His grandmother looked at him and said, “But Marvin, you’re not a real doctor.”

The moral of this story?  You will NOT win against a Jewish Mother.  Thus endeth the lesson.

About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
