A Classic Joke To Start Your Day: The Butler

The Shapiros, a Jewish couple living in England, won twenty million pounds in the National Lottery. They  immediately set out to begin a life of luxury.

They bought a magnificent mansion in Knightsbridge and surrounded themselves with  all the material wealth imaginable.
Then they decided to hire a  butler.

They found the perfect butler through an agency, very proper and very British, and brought him back to their home. The day after his arrival, they instructed him to set up  the dining room table for four, as they were inviting the Cohens to  lunch. The couple then left the house to do some shopping.

When  they returned, they found the table set for  eight. They asked the butler why eight, when they had specifically instructed him to set the table for four.

The butler replied, "The Cohens telephoned and said they were bringing the Blintzes and the  Knishes."

A tip of the kippah to Linda Englander for bringing this joke to our attention.
