Today is Monday and it's also Tu B'Shvat, the new year of the trees. We posted our Tu B'Shvat post yesterday so we wouldn't miss starting the week with a joke today.
Since it's a holiday, we're giving you a bonus -- not just one joke, but five in rapid succession. They come from a Chicago production of Old Jews Telling Jokes, and we're thankful to the Chicago Tribune for posting them on YouTube.
The performance was in 2013 when the off-Broadway show went on a national tour. Alex Goodrich, Tim Kazurinsky, Renee Matthews and Gene Weygandt are the performers at the Royal George Theatre.
