Gifts for Momma

Three sons of a Yiddishe Momma left their homeland, went abroad and prospered. They discussed the gifts they were able to give their old mother.

Avraham, the first, said: "I built a big house for our mother."

Moishe, the second, said: "I sent her a Mercedes with a driver."

David, the youngest, said: "You remember how our mother enjoys reading the Bible. Now she can't see very well. I sent her a remarkable parrot that recites the whole bible. Momma just has to name the chapter and verse."

Soon thereafter, a letter of thanks came from their mother.

"Avraham", she said, "the house you built is so huge. I live only in one room, but I have to clean the whole house."

"Moishe", she said, "I am too old to travel. I stay most of the time at home so I rarely use the Mercedes. And that driver has shpilkas -- he's a pain in the tuchas."

"But David", she said, "the chicken was DELICIOUS!"
