A Joke to Start the Week - "Israeli Errol Flynn"


It's another Monday, time for another Joke to Start the Week. Posting from our Jerusalem bureau this week, we know that the work week started here on Sunday. But we're continuing our tradition of a joke each Monday for the rest of the world where the work week starts today.

Not that we were deprived of jokes on Sunday. We posted a standup routine by Dan Naturman yesterday and spent a laugh-filled hour and a half last night with Dan and his fellow comedians at Avi Liberman's Comedy for Koby in the center of the city.

Once again, our Monday joke comes from Old Jews Telling Jokes and the joke teller is 84-year-old Archie Barkan, Yiddish professor and former Catskills MC.

Here's the setup: The Israeli film industry wants to make a film starring a swashbuckling swordsman like Errol Flynn. They put an ad in the newspaper for a Jewish guy to play a role like Errol Flynn, and then...

Enjoy!
