A Joke to Start the Week: "Citizenship Test"


When we started the "Joke to Start the Week" series about 15 months ago, we didn't know how long we could keep it going, but we seem to have found an endless supply of clean (or relatively clean) jokes to share with you every Monday.

We've been relying on the Old Jews Telling Jokes collection for most of the jokes, and supplementing them with the videos we made of readers like you who attend our comedy shows at hotels and clubs and volunteer to have their versions of oldies taped for sharing on the internet.

Today we dip into a new batch from the Old Jews collection for a gem told by Don Sherman, a 78-year-old retired insurance executive. 

Here's the setup: Sol is a refugee in this country for six years. Today he's going to the courthouse to become a naturalized citizen. He's never been to a courthouse before. On this particular day the judge is going to give the test orally. And then...

Enjoy!
