years ago by a man who had
never seen a baseball game in
his lifetime! o

Hello, Dolly!
Heiress Lisbon Burberry
entered the exclusive depart-
ment store Whamburger’s one
day. Clerks waited on her hand
and foot (especially the latter:
Her designer shoes go on sale
today — only $299.95,
marked down 25%).
Lisbon wanted to buy a de-
signer dress — her own de-
sign, of course. But she
wanted it in a dolly size for her
Barbie doll.
The clerks were surprised as
they brought out frocks.
Lisbon Burberry originals do
not come in doll sizes, and
even with her discount, it’s
going to cost her chauffeur’s
arm and leg to pay for a size
A nervous clerk standing by
a watercooler tipped it over
and splashed water over one
dress, shrinking it to the de-
sired size. Lisbon told the
clerks, “Wrap it up and put it
on my account.”

their toys.
It was Bubba and Zayda, a
real kosher pair,
They were always suspicious
of those living there.
They screamed and they
yelled and the small
pishka flew
Right into the face of the
Rabbi, who knew
Something horrid was coming
or so it would seem,
That all of this tumult was
not just a dream.
They had caught them a thief
with the Chanukah gelt.
Can you picture the way that
all of them felt?
They badgered and bullied
the poor little yid,
Til they finally realized the
yid was a kid.
And he cried he was poor, he
was hungry and cold
And he thought he would faint
(that’s the story he told).
Then the Rabbi remembered,
when he was a boy,
There was never a Chanukah
that brought him much joy.
He too had been poor when
the storm troopers came,
and he wasn’t allowed to
play dreideling games.
And instead of the sound of
the chanting of prayers,
There was only the sound of
the bombs in the air.
So he handed the child the
pennies that shone
And reminded the boy that
he wasn’t alone.
And this Chanukah gift was
the symbol of pride
With the promise to share
with somebody outside.
And they heard a great voice
from the rooftops above
“Happy Chanukah to all and
Shalom with great love!” o
