Variations on a Classic
A Jewish man called his mother in Florida.
He said to his mother, "How are you doing?"
She said, "Not too good. I've been very weak."
The son then asked, "Why are you so weak?"
She said, "Because I haven't eaten in 38 days."
The son then asked, "Why you haven't eaten in 38 days!?"
She said, "Because I didn't want my mouth to be filled with food when you called."
"I had the strangest dream last night,"
a young Jewish man was telling his psychiatrist.
"I saw my mother but, when she turned around to look at me,
I noticed that she had your face. And you can imagine, I found this very disturbing.
In fact, I woke up immediately and couldn't get back to sleep.
I just lay there in bed waiting for morning to come.
Then I got up, drank a Coke, and came right over here for my
appointment. I thought you could help me explain the meaning of this strange dream."
The psychiatrist was silent for a full minute before responding:
"A Coke? That's a breakfast?"
