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?"

Wife: "Eggs."

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."
