Only In America

Jewish Daily Forward, Michelle Obama Has a Rabbi in Her Family

Which reminds me of the old, old joke of the little old Jewish lady in NY city trying to cross Broadway, only to find a police barricade.

“Why,” she asked the cop standing there, “can't I cross the street?”

“It's because of the parade,” he replied.

“The parade? What parade?”

“The Jewish Lord Mayor of Dublin is coming to visit Hizzoner, and they're doing a parade to welcome him,” he said patiently.

“The Jewish Lord Mayor of Dublin?” [*]

“Yes.”

(long pause)

“Only in America.”
