Jewish Humour: Health Complaints

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 Health Complaints:

A Jewish man in a hospital tells the doctor he wants to be transferred to a different hospital.

The doctor says "What's wrong? Is it the food?"
"No, the food is fine. I can't kvetch."
"Is it the room?"
"No, the room is fine. I can't kvetch."
"Is it the staff?"
"No, everyone on the staff is fine. I can't kvetch."
"Then why do you want to be transferred?"
"I can't kvetch!"

Doctor: "You'll live to be 60"
Patient: “I am 60!”
Doctor: “See! What did I tell you?”
Dr. Jacobs finished his examination and informed Herman that he was in perfect health. 
"But what about my headaches?" Herman moaned. 
"I'm not at all worried about your headaches," Dr. Jacobs replied. 
"If you had my headaches, doctor, I wouldn't worry about them either," said Herman.
