Eric Muller says he doesn't remember many jokes, but in I'm Here All Week. Tell Your Friends. he tells a great Jewish joke that I never heard before:
So Joel Rabinowitz, this Jewish guy, falls in love with Bird-in-the-Night, an American Indian girl. They get married and soon decide to have a baby. This is when things get tough. Sol's parents insist that any grandchild of theirs must have a Jewish name. Bird-in-the-Night's parents tell Bird that they'll disown her if she doesn't give their grandchild an Indian name.
When the baby's born, they name her “Smoked Whitefish.”
You thought it was a Jewish joke. Funny, I thought it was an American Indian joke.
IS Whitefish a Jewish name? I would think “Smoked WhiteFish-Stein” would have made more sense for a punchline to the joke… but then again when Froomy makes the postings, logic is at its lowest ebb.
Hey “Go Democrats” (is that you, Eric P.?) — do Steve D. and Dennis S. know you are doing this?
I think I heard that in 1990.
