What Do You Know From Funny, You Bastards

One of my favorite scenes in any movie comes from the ending credits of Eddie Murphy’s 1998 classic, Coming to America. In it, Eddie Murphy, playing an old Jewish man, tells a terrible joke about a man complaining about his soup in restaurant. I’ve posted the clip below if you don’t know what I’m talking about.

With Jackie Mason becoming supremely unfunny these days, it was refreshing to open Nextbook today to find an amazing new site filled with old, Jewish jokes.

I welcome you all to the glory of OldJewsTellingJokes.com. It is pretty new so there isn’t that much content yet. But Sam Hoffman’s, the founder of the site, father got 20 of his funniest friends (all 60 and over), to record their funniest jokes, so more is on the way.

I really recommend “Broccoli”, by Sam’s mother, Diane. It is true killer of a joke. The videos screens are too large to be posted on Mixed Multitudes, so you will have to go to the site to watch it. But it is well worth the extra click.
