A Joke to Start the Week - "Parking in Tel Aviv"


We're starting off the week after Thanksgiving with another joke, this one from the archives of Sam Hoffman's Old Jews Telling Jokes. This week's joke teller is sportscaster and executive producer Mike Leiderman. 

It's an "only in Israel" joke, one that highlights the unique flavor of humor in Israel, a flavor that we've captured in our book, Israel is a Funny Country, which has evolved into one of our most popular programs on the lecture circuit.

We'll be in Jerusalem for the next few weeks, looking for other examples of Israeli humor that we can share. Mike's joke today is set in Tel Aviv, but it could be anywhere else in the country. 

Here's the setup: A motorist drives up to a cop in Tel Aviv and he says "Can I park here?" and then...

Enjoy!
