The Great Jewish Joke Book
By (author) David Minkoff
Oy! by David Minkoff
Book DescriptionQ: What does Sadie do with her headache each morning? A: She sends him to work In this laugh-out-loud book, David Minkoff, collector of Jewish jokes, shares with us the funniest, silliest and unmistakably Jewish jokes from his vast collection. Brought up in a Jewish family, where joke-telling was a social activity, the author is well placed to take a sideways look at Jewish life and culture. All aspects of everyday life is covered, with chapters on life, death, matters of faith, people and professions, medicine, romance and families, and more. From marriage brokers (shadchen) to bar mitzvahs and from schmucks and gossips (yentas), there is a recognisable character on every page, and a rather handy glossary of terms at the back! There is even a special child-friendly section and a humour test for couples. Contemporary and traditional by turns, Oy! The Great Jewish Joke Book is great fun for all the family to enjoy, from couples to grandmothers. And lastly: Q: How do you prevent your bagels being stolen? A: Put lox on them. Brought up in a Jewish household where joke-telling is a social activity, the author has been collecting jokes for a long time. He owns and runs a website devoted to the Jewish Joke that has over 2000 jokes on it. His previous title, The Ultimate Book of Jewish Jokes was a huge seller worldwide.
