Two accountants met in a bar.
One said to the other:
"I noticed you got here on a Harley. Where did you get such a great bike?"
The second accountant replied, "Well, I was walking along yesterday, minding my own business, when a stunningly beautiful woman rode up on this bike.

She threw the bike to the ground, took off all her clothes and said, "Take what you want.", so I took the bike.
The first accountant nodded approvingly, "Good choice; the clothes probably wouldn't fit you."

The nursing home
An Arab family was considering putting their grandfather in a nursing home.
Since most of the facilities were completely full, they had to put him in a Jewish home.
After a few weeks in the Jewish facility, they came to visit grandpa.
"How do you like it here?" asks the grandson."It's wonderful! Everyone here is so courteous and respectful," says grandpa."We're so happy for you.
We were worried that this was the wrong place for you.
You know, since you are a little different from everyone.""Oh, no! Let me tell you about how wonderfully they treat the residents here," grandpa says with a big smile.
"There's a musician here -- he's 85 years old.He hasn't played the violin in 20 years and everyone still calls him 'Maestro'!""There is a judge in here -- he's 95 years old. He hasn't been on the bench in 30 years and everyone still calls him 'Your Honor'!"And there's a physician here -- 90 years ! old.He hasn't been practicing medicine for 25 years and everyone still calls him 'Doctor'!""And what about you Grandpa" - asks the grandson."And me...., I haven't had sex for 35 years and they still call me 'The f***king Arab!'

Little Johnny and his family were having Sunday dinner at his
Grandmother's house. Everyone was seated around the table as the food
was being served. When little Johnny received his plate, he started
eating right away.
wait until we say our prayer."
"I don't have to," The boy replied. "Of course, you do," his mother
insisted. "We say a prayer, before eating, at our house."
"That's our house," Johnny explained.

But this is Grandma's house and she knows how to cook!

An elderly couple had been dating each other for a long time.
At the urging of their friends, they decided it was finally time for
Before the wedding, they went out to dinner and had a long
conversation regarding how their marriage might work.
They discussed finances, living arrangements and so on.
Finally, the old gentleman decided it was time to broach the subject
of their physical relationship.
"How do you feel about sex?" he asked, rather tentatively.
"Well," she said, responding very carefully, "I'd have to say...I
would like it infrequently."
The old gentleman sat quietly for a moment and then over his
glasses, he looked her in the eye and casually asked "Is that one word or two?"
