Two jokes

Today is Friday. In order to start getting in the mood for a good weekend, I decided to share with you two jokes that I read in an e-mail that a friend of mine sent to me some time ago.

Jack decided to go skiing with his buddy, Bob. So they loaded up Jack's minivan and headed north.

After driving for a few hours, they got caught in a terrible blizzard. So they pulled into a nearby farm and asked the attractive lady who answered the door if they could spend the night.

'I realize it is terrible weather out there and I have this huge house all to myself, but I'm recently widowed,' she explained. 'I'm afraid the neighbors will talk if I let you stay in my house.'

'Don't worry,' Jack said. 'We'll be happy to sleep in the barn. And if the weather breaks, we'll be gone at first light.' The lady agreed, and the two men found their way to the barn and settled in for the night. Come morning, the weather had cleared, and they got on their way. They enjoyed a great weekend of skiing.

About nine months later, Jack got an unexpected letter from an attorney (lawyer). It took him a few minutes to figure it out, but he finally determined that it was from the attorney of that attractive widow he had met on the ski weekend.

He dropped in on his friend Bob and asked, ' Bob, do you remember that good-looking widow from the farm we stayed at on our ski holiday up north about 9 months ago?'

'Yes, I do' said Bob.

'Did you, how can I say, happen to get up in the middle of the night, go up to the house and pay her a visit?'

'Well, um, yes!,' Bob said, a little embarrassed about being found out, 'I have to admit that I did.'
'And did you happen to give her my name instead of telling her your name?'

Bob's face turned beet red (beet significa beterraba; beet red significa vermelho como uma beterraba) and he said, 'Yeah, look, I'm sorry, buddy. I'm afraid I did.' 'Why do you ask?'

'She just died and left me everything.'

(And you thought the ending would be different, didn't you? You and I know that you have smiled...now keep that smile for the rest of the day!)

In the second joke, we have two very well known characters, from the Middle East.

GEORGE BUSH SPOTS MOSES.

George Bush was visiting Mubarak in Egypt and they were out in the boondocks and George sees an old man with a white beard and hair in the distance and asks Mubarak, "Isn't that Moses"?

George was so convinced that it was Moses that he called out the man and motioned him to come. But the man turned and started walking away. George, being a jogger, ran after him and caught up to him. George then stopped the old man and exclaimed, "You MUST be Moses".
The man replied, "Go away, the last time I talked to a bush, I had to roam the desert for 40 years".

I take the opportunity to wish all our Jewish readers L'Shana Tova 5771.

 

Have an excellent weekend.
