Cheating on His Diet


An elderly rabbi, having just retired from his duties in the congregation, finally decides to fulfill his lifelong fantasy--to taste pork. He goes to a hotel in the Catskills in the off-season (not his usual one, mind you), enters the empty dining hall and sits down at a table far in the corner. The waiter arrives, and the rabbi orders roast suckling pig.

As the rabbi is waiting, struggling with his conscience, a family from his congregation walks in! They immediately see the rabbi and, since no one should eat alone, they join him. Shocked, the rabbi begins to sweat. At last, the waiter arrives with a huge domed platter. He lifts the lid to reveal--what else?--roast suckling pig.

"This place is amazing!" cries the rabbi. "You order a baked apple, and look what you get!"
