Those are bulls testicles from the bull fight this morning. A delicacy! " The American, though momentarily daunted, said, " What the hell, I'm on vacation! Bring me an order! " The waiter replied, " I am so sorry senor. There is only one serving per day because there is only one bull fight each morning. If you come early tomorrow and place your order, we will be sure to save you this delicacy! " The next morning, the American returned, placed his order, and then that evening he was served the one and only special delicacy of the day. After a few bites, and inspecting the contents of his platter, he called to the waiter and said, " These are delicious, but they are much, much smaller than the ones I saw you serve yesterday!

A Jewish couple, are sitting together…

A Jewish couple, are sitting together on an airplane flying to the Far East. Over the public address system, the Captain announces: " Ladies and Gentlemen, I am afraid I have some very bad news. Our engines have ceased functioning, and this plane will be going down momentarily. Luckily, I see an island below us that should be able to accommodate our landing. This island appears to be uncharted; I am unable to find it on our maps. So the odds are that we will never be rescued and will have to live on the island for a very long time, if not for the rest of our lives. A few minutes later the plane lands safely on the island, whereupon Morris turns to his wife and asks, " Esther, did we pay our pledge to the Yeshiva yet? " No Morris! " she responded. Morris smiles, then asks, " Esther, did we pay our UJA pledge? " " Oy no, I forgot to send the check!! " Now Morris laughs. " One last thing, Esther. Did you remember to send our Temple Building Fund check this month? " " Oy Morris I forgot that one too! " Now Morris is practically choking with laughter. Esther asks Morris, " So what are you smiling and laughing about? Morris responds, " They'll find us. "

More time passed, and he began feeling faint. He was on the verge of passing out when he spied a tent about 500 meters in front of him. Barely conscious, he reached the tent and called out, " Water…". A bedouin appeared in the tent door and replied sympathetically, " I am sorry, sir, but I have no water. However, would you like to buy a tie? " With this, he brandished a collection of exquisite silken neckwear. " You fool, " gasped the man. " I'm dying! I need water! " " Well, sir, " replied the bedouin, " If you really need water, there is a tent about two kilometers south of here where you can get some. " Without knowing how, the man summoned sufficient strength to drag his parched body the distance to the second tent. With his last ounce of strength he tugged at the door of the tent and collapsed. Another bedouin, dressed in a costly tuxedo, appeared at the door and enquired, " May I help you sir? " " Water…" was the feeble reply. " Oh, sir, " replied the bedouin, " I'm sorry, but you can't come in here without a tie! "

A pair of tourists were out…

A pair of tourists were out in the fields when they discovered an abandoned well near an old farm house. Of course they're curious so they drop a small stone into the well, but they never hear it hit bottom. They search and find a larger rock and drop it into the well but once again hear nothing. They decide they need something larger and search the farm yard for a larger object. After much struggle, they manage to drag a large railroad tie to the edge of the well and drop it over the edge. After several seconds, a goat tears across the yard and without any hesitation, dives head first into the open hole. The two tourists stand in amazement. About then a farmer appears and tells them he is looking for a lost goat. The tourists tell the farmer about the goat diving into the well. " That couldn't be my goat", the farmer replies, " My goat was grazing in the field roped to a railroa d tie! "

Three New Zealanders and three Aussies…

Three New Zealanders and three Aussies are travelling by train to a cricket match at the World Cup in England. At the station, the three Aussies each buy a ticket and watch as the three New Zealanders buy just one ticket between them. " How are the three of you going to travel on only one ticket? " asks one of the Aussies. " Watch and learn, " answers one of the New Zealanders. They all board the train. The Aussies take their respective seats but all three New Zealanders cram into a toilet and close the door behind them. Shortly after the train has departed, the conductor comes around collecting tickets. He knocks on the toilet door and says, " Ticket please. " The door opens just a crack and a single arm emerges with a ticket in hand. The conductor takes it and moves on. The Aussies see this and agree it was quite a clever idea. So after the game, they decide to copy the New Zealanders on the return trip and save some money (being clever with money, and all that). When they get to the station, they buy a single ticket for the return trip. To their astonishment, the New Zealanders don't buy a ticket at all!! " How are you going to travel without a ticket? " says one perplexed Aussie. " Watch and learn, " answers a...

A magician was working on a cruise ship in the Caribbean. The audience would be different each week, so the magician allowed himself to do the same tricks over and over again. There was only one problem: The captain's parrot saw the shows each week and began to understand how the magician did every trick. Once he understood he started shouting in the middle of the show: " Look, it's not the same hat" " Look, he is hiding the flowers under the table" " Hey, why are all the cards the Ace of Spades? " The magician was furious but couldn't do anything; it was, after all, the captain's parrot. One day the ship had an accident and sank. The magician found himself on a piece of wood in the middle of the ocean with the parrot, of course. They stared at each other with hate, but did not utter a word. This went on for a day and another and another. After a week the parrot said: " OK, I give up. Where's the boat? "

It's too cold. The accommodations are awful. The group arrived at the site of the famous Blarney Stone. " Good luck will be followin'ya all your days if you kiss the Blarney Stone, " the guide said. " Unfortunately, it's being cleaned today and so no one willbe able to kiss it. Perhaps we can come back tomorrow. " " We can't be here tomorrow, " the nasty woman shouted. " We have some other boring tour to go on. So I guess we can't kiss the stupid stone. " " Well now, " the guide said, " it is said that if you kiss someone who has kissed the stone, you'll have the same good fortune. " " And I suppose you've kissed the stone, " the woman scoffed. " No, ma'am, " the frustrated guide said, " but I've sat on it. "
