You know what "they" say?.... They say that "Laughter is the best medicine.".... And, with that in mind - I'd say that, for once, "they" may be right.... 'Cause this here book of jokes could be "just what the doctor ordered".

At times - Funnier than a custard-cream pie right in the kisser - "Old Jews Telling Jokes" is a laugh-a-minute anthology of Jewish humour that (unless you're a total schtick-head) is guaranteed to get you chuckling, snickering, or giggling in no time flat,

From poking hilarious fun at the likes of rabbis, doctors, and, of course, "Jewish" mothers - This book of ethnic jokes is priceless, comic fun for the pure enjoyment of one and all (no religious beliefs required).
