    How Come No One Ever Told Me??

    How Come No One Ever Told Me??

    I didn’t know most of these. Thought it kind of interesting, makes me seem kind of stupid.

    Most aluminum foil boxes have press-in tabs that secure the roll in place,
    so you don’t have worry about it flying out every time you rip off a sheet.
    (Saran Wrap too)

    You’ve been dispensing Tic Tacs the hard way.

    You know how when you violently shake a container of Tic Tacs into your palm it seems as though you always end up with zero or seven? Avoid that altogether by letting a mint gently glide into the tiny lid crevice

    You haven’t been using ketchup cups to their full potential.

    Instead of grabbing multiple cups of ketchup, simply pull apart at the edges for twice the space.

    Chinese takeout containers are actually made to fold out into plates.

    The containers actually are meant to unfold into a makeshift plate,
    which you can easily reassemble into a box for storing leftovers.
    (Never knew or noticed that. Great Idea!)

    Greek yogurt containers are meant to be folded in half.

    Chances are you’ve been scooping the toppings with your spoon onto the yogurt.

    But, have you realized, the topping holder folds over, so you can pour the toppings DIRECTLY ON TOP?

    Soda tabs double as straw holders.

    Turn the tab around so that it acts as holder that can stop the straw from raising out of the can as the soda fizzes.

    You probably don’t realize it, but your pots come with built-in spoon rests.

    Soft-drink lids can double as coasters.

    WELL ! I’ll be darned

    Wholesome Jewish Humour from the Past 

    Forwarded message
    From: Ralph & BA
    Date: 22 January 2014 08:30
    Subject: Fw: Fwd: Wholesome Jewish Humour from the Past

    Jewish Humor from the Past

    Remember the old-time Jewish comedians of Vaudeville days – Shecky Green, Red Buttons, Totie Fields, Milton Berle, Henny Youngman, and others? You may have only heard of them, but don’t we all miss their kind of humor? Not a single swear word in their comic routines…here’s some of them:* A car hit an elderly Jewish man. The paramedic says, “Are you comfortable? ” The man says, “I make a good living.”

    * I just got back from a pleasure trip. I took my mother-in-law to the airport.

    * I’ve been in love with the same woman for 49 years. If my wife finds out, she’ll kill me!

    * Someone stole all my credit cards, but I won’t be reporting it. The thief spends less than my wife did.

    * We always hold hands. If I let go, she shops.

    * My wife and I went to a hotel where we got a waterbed. My wife calls it the Dead Sea .

    * My wife and I revisited the hotel where we spent our wedding night. This time I was the one who stayed in the bathroom and cried.

    * My Wife was at the beauty shop for two hours. That was only for the estimate. She got a mudpack and looked great for two days. Then the mud fell off.

    * The Doctor gave a man six months to live. The man couldn’t pay his bill, so the doctor gave him another six months.

    * The Doctor called Mrs. Cohen saying, “Mrs. Cohen, your check came back.” Mrs. Cohen replied, “So did my arthritis!”

    * Doctor: “You’ll live to be 60!” Patient: “I AM 60!” Doctor: “See! What did I tell you?”

    * A doctor held a stethoscope up to a man’s chest. The man asks, “Doc, how do I stand? ” The doctor says, “That’s what puzzles me!”

    * Patient: “I have a ringing in my ears. ” Doctor: “Don’t answer!”

    * A drunk was in front of a judge. The judge says, “You’ve been brought here for drinking. ” The drunk says, “Okay, let’s get started.”

    *Why do Jewish divorces cost so much? They’re worth it.

    * Why do Jewish men die before their wives? They want to.

    *The Harvard School of Medicine did a study of why Jewish women like Chinese food so much. The study revealed that the reason for this is because Won Ton spelled backward is Not Now.

    *There is a big controversy on the Jewish view of when life begins. In Jewish tradition, the fetus is not considered viable until it graduates from law school.

    Q : Why don’t Jewish mothers drink?
    A : Alcohol interferes with their suffering.

    *Q : Have you seen the newest Jewish-American-Princess horror movie?
    A : It’s called, “Debbie Does Dishes.”

    *Q : Why do Jewish mothers make great parole officers?
    A : They never let anyone finish a sentence.

    *A man called his mother in Florida . “Mom, how are you?” Not too good,” said the mother. “I’ve been very weak. ” The son said, “Why are you so weak?” She said, “Because I haven’t eaten in 38 days.” The son said, “That’s terrible. Why haven’t you eaten in 38 days? ” The mother answered, “Because, I didn’t want my mouth to be full in case you should call.”

    *A Jewish man said that when he was growing up, they always had two choices for dinner – Take it or leave it.

    *A Jewish boy comes home from school and tells his mother he has a part in the play. She asks, “What part is it?” The boy says, “I play the part of the Jewish husband. ” The mother scowls and says, “Go back and tell the teacher you want a speaking part.”

    Q : Where does a Jewish husband hide money from his wife?
    A : Under the vacuum cleaner.

    Q : How many Jewish mothers does it take to change a light bulb?
    A : (Sigh) “Don’t bother. I’ll sit in the dark. I don’t want to be a nuisance to anybody.”

    Short summary of every Jewish holiday: They tried to kill us, we won, let’s eat.

    A Jewish mother gives her son a blue shirt and a brown shirt for his birthday. On the next visit, he wears the brown one. The mother says, “What’s the matter already? Didn’t you like the blue one?”

    Did you hear about the bum who walked up to a Jewish mother on the street and said, “Lady I haven’t eaten in three days.” “Force yourself,” she replied.

    Q : What’s the difference between a Rottweiler and a Jewish mother?
    A : Eventually, the Rottweiler lets go.

    Q : Why are Jewish Men circumcised?
    A : Because Jewish women don’t like anything that isn’t 20% off
