The Somewhat Litvshe Yid

Monday, June 06, 2005

Ha ha, very funny.

Ok, before getting back to learnen, I figured I'd post a nice lomdishe joke.

There was a couple, the husband learned and the wife ran a small store. Everyday a little bit afternoon the husband would come to the store and watch the place so the wife could go home for lunch. She would come back an hour later and he would return to the beis medrash. So, one day he's deep in a sugyia when he realizes what time it is, runs to the store arriving a few minutes late. His wife gives him a look and goes off to get lunch. He's sitting there in the quiet store still going through the gemara and rishonim and suddenly he understands the sugyia, jumps up and runs back to the beis medrash to double check the sources and tell his chevrusa.
The unsuspecting wife comes back from lunch and finds the store open and unlocked and her husband nowhere to be found. Needless to say, she is less then pleased. She locks the door and runs to the beis medrash, stopping to pick up a stick on her way.
When she arrives at the beis medrash, she lays into her husband, wailing away at him with the club and yelling how horrid he is, doesn't think, almost caused them to lose everything. The man is in shock, trying to fend of the blows raining down on his head. Finally the two are seperated and brought before the Rov of the town.
The wife goes into the story about how she came back and the door was left open and how theives could have come and taken everything from the store. The husband responds that he was quietly learning and along came the wife and began to beat him with the stick.
The Rov sat there for a moment and then shook his head. Then he said, "this is the first time I've ever heard the woman claim, pesach pasuach matsasi and the man claimed mukas aitz ani."
