JOKE OF THE WEEK, 16 May 2016
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.”
