Poor Man's Blintzes
An improverished Jew in an Eastern European village one day asked his
wife to make him blintzes.
Wife: "Only rich people can afford to make blintzes."
Husband: "What can't we afford?"
Husband: "I'll have my blintzes without eggs."
Wife: "We can't afford the cottage cheese."
Husband: "Leave out the cottage cheese."
Wife: "We can't afford the raisins."
Husband: "I don't need raisins in my blintzes."
The wife makes the blintzes without eggs, cottage cheese, or raisins.
The husband takes two bites and says, "You know, I don't see what rich
people see in blintzes."
