Jewish Humor - Jewish Mothers
Jewish Mothers, Jewish Guilt?

What is more dear to one's heart than one's Jewish Mother?  The Jewish Mother, the Yiddishe mameh, has been immortalized in song and poetry.  All of us, well at least most of us, blessed with a Jewish mother, know how lucky we are. We love our Jewish Imma, mama, mameh, muter, mommy, ma, mom etc. for caring about us more than life itself, for her love, for her warmth, for putting us first, for "knowing" that we, her children, are the greatest, the smartest, the most talented, the most accomplished.  We love are mothers for believing with whole-heartedly the we deserve the best.  But we also love to poke fun, even though many of our mothers don't quite fit the stereotypical Yiddishe mameh so funnily depicted in Jewish humor.  So why don't we gather round and laugh a little, Jewish mothers and beloved children.  Let's laugh to our hearts delight.. and let's "ess eppes" eat something!

At the Restaurant
What did the waiter ask the group of dining Jewish mothers?
"Is ANYTHING all right?"

Changing a Light Bulb
How many Jewish mothers does it take to change a light bulb?
(Sigh) Don't bother, I'll sit in the dark,  I don't want to be a nuisance to anybody.

Eat Something!
Did you hear about the bum who walked up to the Jewish mother on the street and said, "Lady, I haven't eaten in three days."  To which she replied: "Force yourself."

Phone Call
A man calls his mother in Florida.  "Mom, how are you?"
"Not too good," says the mother. "I've been very weak."
The son says, "Why are you so weak?"
She says, "Because I haven't eaten in 38 days."
The man says, "That's terrible. Why haven't you eaten in 38 days?"
The mother answers, "Because I didn't want my mouth to be filled with  food if you should call." 

Worry, a Jewish Culture
Jewish telegram: "Begin worrying.  Details to follow"
