Shaggy George W.

I received this from Bill Pardue. It appears to have been bouncing around for a little while, already.

George W. said to an aide. “I gotta see what all this Jewish stuff is about.” So off they went to a kosher restaurant. The first course was set in front of them: Matzoh ball soup.

George W. was grossed out and hesitant to taste this strange looking brew. Gently, the aide said, “Just have a taste. If you don’t like it, you don’t have to finish it.”

George W. dug in, spooning up a small piece of matzoh ball with some soup, and quickly finishing off the entire bowl and all of the matzoh ball.

“That was delicious,” George W. said. “Do they eat any other parts of the matzoh, or just the balls?”

Stan Kegel added the following after receiving my posting.

While the joke sounds like something Dubya would say, “Cassel’s Dictionary of Humerous Sayings” attributes it to Marilyn Monroe. Apparently she said it upon being served matzo balls at a sedar at the home of Arthur Miller’s parents.

But its probably a lot older than that.
