Messiah Greeter

from Joseph Telushkin's Jewish Humor

"In a small Russian shtetl, the community council decides to pay a poor Jew a ruble a week to sit at the town's entrance and be the first to greet the Messiah when he arrives.

The man's brother comes to see him, and is puzzled why he took such a low-paying job.

"It's truth," the poor man responds, "the pay is low. But it's a steady job." "
