  • A Slim Book of Jewish Humor & Insights: Jun 7, 2013
    by jjares

    This slim volume has some of the best ?wit and wisdom? from celebrated and less famous Jews. Some entries deserve a chuckle, a groan or a feeling of wonder at the insight of man into the human condition.

    Here are a few of my favorites:

    Woody Allen: Bisexuality immediately doubles your chances of a date on a Saturday night.

    Morey Amsterdam: Marriage is wonderful. Without it husbands and wives would have to fight with strangers.

    Al Capp: Abstract art? A product of the untalented, sold by the unprincipled to the utterly bewildered.

    Milton Friedman: Concentrated power is not rendered harmless by the good intentions of those who create it.

    Oscar Levant: A pun is the lowest form of humor ? when you don?t think of it first!

    Herman Mankiewicz: She could give you an eyewitness report on the Crucifixion and put you to sleep.
