After a few days of patriotic posts we figure it's time for a change of pace with another selection from the newest crop of Old Jews Telling Jokes.
This one comes to us from Howard Eichenwald, a 65-year-old software developer. Called "Tuberculosis,"it touches on two genres of these classic clips. One is the medical genre, when a visit to the doctor results in a grim diagnosis. The other is the misunderstood explanation, which was probably very common in the early part of the 20th century, when many Jews spoke (and listened) with a pronounced (or mispronounced) accent.
After you've finished groaning, we hope you'll like it, and even pass it along to some friends. Enjoy!
