|A man and his ever-nagging wife went on vacation in Jerusalem. While they were there, the wife passed away. The undertaker told the husband, "You can have her buried here in the Holy Land for $150 or we can have her shipped back home for $5,000."
The husband thought about it and told the undertaker he would have her shipped back home.
The undertaker asked him, "Why would you spend $5,000 to have her shipped home when you could have a beautiful burial here, and it would only cost $150?"
The husband replied, "Long ago, a man died here, was buried here, and three days later, rose from the dead. I just can't take that chance!"
|It is a little-known fact that Golda Meir's fierce nationalism was forged when she was a young woman. Golda had a waitressing job on the Haifa ferry, serving smoked-salmon snacks to travelers. She was deeply moved when, one day, the ferry had to transport for burial the bodies of three civilians killed by terrorists.
To this day Israeli children are told "the ferry tale of Golda, lox and the three biers."
|You are going to hell for that one, Richard. Even Bullwinkle would wince.
