Jewish Christmas

 Jewish Christmas Profiteering

The Teacher asked young Patrick Murphy: "What do you do at
Christmas time?

Patrick addressed the class: "Well Ms. Jones, me and my twelve
brothers and sisters go to midnight mass and we sing hymns; then
we come home very late and we put mince pies by the back door and
hang up our stockings. Then all excited, we go to bed and wait
for Father Christmas to come with all our toys.

"Very nice Patrick," she said. "Now Jimmy Brown, what do you do
at Christmas?"

Well, Ms. Jones, me and my sister also go to church with Mom and
Dad and we sing carols and we get home ever so late. We put
cookies and milk by the chimney and we hang up our stockings. We
hardly sleep, waiting for Santa Claus to bring our presents.

Realizing there was a Jewish boy in the class and not wanting to
leave him out of the discussion, she asked, "Now, Isaac Cohen,
what do you do at Christmas?"

Isaac said, "Well, it's the same thing every year...Dad comes
home from the office. We all pile into the Rolls Royce; then we
drive to Dad's toy factory. When we get inside, we look at all
the empty shelves...And begin to sing: "What A Friend We Have in
Jesus". Then we all go to the Bahamas."


Another testimony to capitalism

A friend of mine quit the Canadian Forces and just started his own business in Kandahar .  He's making land mines that look like prayer mats. Business is good.  He says prophets are going through the roof.
