Crowded Bus

It was rush hour, and the city bus filled until the aisle was jammed with standing commuters. One woman, precariously balanced on spike heels, clung to a handgrip. Suddenly the bus took a sharp corner, flinging her across the laps of two seated male passengers. There was silence and all eyes turned on the threesome.

Laughter erupted as the quick-witted woman righted herself and quipped, „All these years I thought I was British, and now I find I’m a Laplander!”

17 iul.

Reward or Punishment

A famous rabbi died and his adoring followers prayed to God to have just a glimpse of him in heaven. Their wish was granted, but to their horror, they saw him with a beautiful blonde on his lap. „Rabbi, Rabbi!” they cried. „How can you behave like this, you, who have always been so saintly?”

„Listen, you don’t understand,” replied the rabbi. „She’s not my reward, I’m her punishment!”
