One cannot, of course, talk about Yiddish without mentioning the Jewish Humor. As I am convinced the so-called Jewish Jokes are not really about the Jews but about the human condition itself, I am gong to tell you a “Yiddish joke” right here and right now. I can only recommend the site I borrowed it from, especially this Vocabulary is extremely funny. And do check the jokes about the famous Jewish Mother, they are about the general state of affairs, too:
Four Jewish ladies, at a resort in the Catskills, were in rockers on the veranda and admiring the scenery.
After a while the first woman sighed, “Oy!” The others sighed sympathetically.
Then the second woman sighed, “Oy Vey!”
The others nodded.
A third woman said, “Oy, Gottenyu!”
The others nodded as if in agreement.
Finally, the fourth woman said, “Enough talk about the children. Let’s go for a walk!”
