A Joke to Start the Week - "A Mynah Bird for Mother"


Another Monday. Another Joke to Start the Week. Another trip back to Kutsher's Resort in Monticello, New York, the Borscht Belt, the Catskills, where we recorded a lot of Jews telling their favorite jokes in the lobby between meals this summer.

We could use some more jokes and jokers for the coming months, so if you're interesting in bringing our shows to your synagogue or club, just invite us for a comedy evening or comedy brunch. We'll be there with one or more of our hour-long romps through the funniest Jewish videos on the Internet, and bring along a video camera and tripod to record your funniest jokes. For more information, use the contact form in the left column of this page.

Today we're bringing back 80-year-old Sheldon Horowitz, the retired attorney and adjunct professor, to tell his joke for this week.

Here's the setup: There are three Jewish brothers. One of them is a successful doctor, one of them is a successful lawyer, and the third guy runs a delicatessen. He's not so successful. Their mother is down in Florida and her birthday is coming up. So...

Enjoy!
