Name game

David is telling a new joke to Yossi.

“Yitzhak and Hymie were talking one day … ”

Right away, Yossi interrupts him. “Always with the Jewish jokes! Give it a rest! Why do your jokes always have to be about Jews? Just change the names to another ethnic group for once, will you David!”

So David starts again, “Hashimoto and Suzuki were talking one day at their nephew’s bar mitzvah …”

No breakfast

Moshe was taking to his psychiatrist.

“I had a weird dream recently,” he says. “I saw my mother but then I noticed she had your face. I found this so worrying that I immediately awoke and couldn’t get back to sleep. I just stayed there thinking about it until 7 a.m.

“I got up, made myself a slice of toast and some coffee and came straight here. Can you please help me explain the meaning of my dream?”

The psychiatrist kept silent for some time, then said, “One slice of toast and coffee? Do you call that a breakfast?”
