Goyshe Kopp

After forty years of pious observance, the old man had had it. He told his wife, "Iím tired of getting up early every morning to put on tefillin and say the same prayers. Iím not going to do it any more. Iím going to turn Catholic."

True to his word, he contacted a priest and began taking instruction in the Catholic faith. After several months, he did indeed become a Catholic.

Next morning, as he always did, he got up early and automatically began to put on his tefillin. "What are you doing?" asked his wife. "I thought you turned Catholic so you wouldnít have to do that any more."

"Oy!" cried the old fellow, smacking himself in the head, "goyshe kopp!"
