  • Elder of Ziyon
Since today is the first day of Adar and I have been having a hard time finding good Jewish jokes that I hadn't heard of, I thought to go in the other direction and look at jokes that were made at the expense of Jews in 19th century books.

Here's one from The Library of Wit and Humor, Prose and Poetry: Selected from the Literature of All Times and Nations, Volume 4, 1894:


A Jew, who was condemned to be hanged, was brought to the gallows, and just on the point of being turned off, when a reprieve arrived. When informed of this, it was expected he would instantly have quitted the cart, but he stayed to see a fellow-prisoner hanged; and being asked why he did not get about his business, he said, "He waited to see if he could bargain with Mr. Ketch for the other gentleman's clothes."

Elder of Ziyon - حـكـيـم صـهـيـون

This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money. For over 18 years and 38,000 articles I have been providing accurate, original news that would have remained unnoticed. I've written hundreds of scoops and sometimes my reporting ends up making a real difference. I appreciate any donations you can give to keep this blog going.
