A Joke to Start the Week: "My Wife is Poisoning Me"


It's Monday morning and time to start the work week with another joke from the files of Old Jews Telling Jokes.

Today's joke teller is 82-year-old Sylvie Drake. Sylvie was chief theater critic at the Los Angeles Times from 1991 through 1993. She served on the 1994 Pulitzer Prize Drama Jury, was a personal interpreter for playwright Eugene Ionesco in the 1980s, served as president of the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle and on the Executive Committee of the American Theatre Critics Association.

We expect some groans after she tells the joke. Yes, we know you've heard it before, and yes, we know you know how to tell it better. But isn't that the case with all old Jewish jokes? Enjoy!
