Another Joke to Start Your Day: Mezuzahs

A wealthy Jewish man buys a fabulous home in Beverly Hills, California. He brings in a local designer to decorate the place. 

When the job is finished, the homeowner is delighted but realizes that he's forgotten to put mezuzahs on the doors. He goes out and buys 50 mezuzahs and asks the decorator, who is non-Jewish, to place them on the right hand side of each door except bathrooms and kitchens.

He's really worried that the decorator will chip the paint work or won't put them up correctly. However, when he comes back a few hours later, he sees that the job has been carried out to his entire satisfaction. He's so pleased that he gives the decorator a bonus. 

As the decorator is walking out of the door he says, "Glad you're happy with the job..." "By the way, I took out the warranties in each one and left them on the table for you."
(A tip of the kippah to Teddy Asch for calling this one to our attention.)
