Jewish Humour: One Liners

Monday Humor

Much of the Jewish humour on this site can be found in this wonderful book: The Encyclopedia of Jewish Humor, compiled and edited by Henry D. Spalding.

This week's humour is focused on One Liners:

A Jewish telegram: "Start worrying. Details to follow." 

I once wanted to become an atheist but I gave up . . . they have no holidays. —Henny Youngman

The remarkable thing about my mother is that for 30 years she served us nothing but leftovers. The original meal has never been found.—Calvin Trillin

Doctor: You'll live to be 60!
Patient: I am 60!
Doctor: See! What did I tell you?

I don't want to achieve immortality through my work. I want to achieve immortality through not dying. —Woody Allen

& the last a well-knowm Haiku
Is one Nobel Prize
so much to ask from a child
after all I've done?
