'I don't care who you are, this is a funny book!!'
'The first collection in English of humorous stories, satires and witticisms from the rich Jewish literature of all times.'
'The book is like taking a trip through the world of modern and ancient jewry, illuminated by satire, wit, irony, and cockeyed waggery.'
It is 5 1/2 in by 8 1/2 in, and and over 2 in thick, its weight is almost 2 lbs, it is a big book!
The dust cover is ragged, but the book is in good condition, the pages are starting to turn yellow. It will give many hours of enjoyment.
'Do tell me, Rabbi,' once asked the president of a congregation, 'why is it that a godly man like you is always talking about business matters? Now, take me- I'm a businessman, but once I leave my office I do nothing but talk about spiritual matters.'
'This follows a very sound principle!' answered the rabbi.
'What principle is that, Rabbi?'
'Oh, the principle that people usually like to discuss things they know nothing about.'
