Ruth and Golda were walking along Hendon High Street. Ruth says,

“My son Irving is getting married. He tells me he is engaged to a wonderful girl, but… he thinks she may have a disease called herpes. Golda says,

“Do you have any idea what this herpes is, and can he catch it?” Ruth replies,

“No, but I am just so thrilled to hear about Irving’s engagement ‑ it’s time he settled down. As far as the herpes goes…who knows?”

“Well,” says Golda, “I have a very good medical dictionary at home. I’ll look it up and call you.”

So Golda goes home, looks it up, and calls Ruth.

“Ruth, I found it. Not to worry. It says herpes is a disease of the gentiles.”
