It's another Monday and we're back to work (except for our readers in Jerusalem and other walled cities who are celebrating Shushan Purim today). So it's time for another joke to start the week.
This week we're once again dipping into the Old Jews Telling Jokes collection and coming up with an oldie but goodie told by a star performer, noted attorney and author Alan Dershowitz.
Dershowitz has been called "the best-known criminal lawyer in the world" and one of the nation's "most distinguished defenders of individual rights." He was defense counsel in some of the biggest celebrity trials of the 20th century. He is presently the Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law at Harvard Law School. Alan was born in Williamsburg, in Brooklyn, in 1938.
This week we're completing a ten day lecture tour in South Florida and were inspired to include this joke after telling and hearing countless jokes like this one -- in hotels, in shuls, at Shabbat lunch, at a Purim seudah, and at a full-to-capacity 1200 seat playhouse in one of the senior villages that give this area its character.
