How not to impress your future in-laws :)

This joke may be old as the hills and twice as dusty in some circles, for all I know, but here it is, for your amusement, courtesy of my uncle.

Torah Scholar

A young woman brings home her fiancé to meet her parents. After dinner, her mother tells her father to find out about the young man. The father invites the fiancé to his study for a drink. "So what are your plans?" the father asks the young man. "I am a Torah scholar," he replies." A Torah scholar. Hmm." the father says. "Admirable, but what how will you provide a home for my daughter to live in, as she's accustomed to?" "I will study," the young man replies, "and God will provide for us." "And how will you buy her a beautiful engagement ring, such as she deserves?" asks the father. "I will concentrate on my studies," the young man replies, "and God will provide for us." "And children?" asks the father. "How will you support children?" "Don't worry, sir, God will provide," replies the fiance. The conversation proceeds like this, and each time the father asks a question, the young idealist insists that God will provide. Later, the mother asks, "How did it go, honey?" The father answers, "He has no job and no plans, but the good news is, he thinks I'm God."

I'm sorry, that one's REALLY old. But if it's "new to you"... great! :)

Ezzie, what can I say? As with everything else Jewish, I'm learning the jokes at a late age, too. :)

Even if this joke is old, I have never heard it. My Grandfather told a lot of jokes, but somehow his missed this one. He'd would have loved it and we would have heard it over and over!

Anon., welcome aboard. Glad you enjoyed, and I'm also glad that you have such fond memories of your grandfather. Cherish them always.
