Laugh Out Loud

From “Zoo Eretz Zoo” by Richard Codor

Abe goes to the movies and sits next to Moshe. Abe notices Moshe has his dog sitting next to him on the seat. The movie starts and Abe notices the dog laughs at the funny scenes and closes his eyes at the horror scenes. Abe was so fascinated by the dog's reaction and understanding of the movie that he asked Moshe, "Your dog is amazing – he actually liked the movie." Moshe replies, "Yes, I was very surprised also, because he hated the book."

Mrs. Stein, a rich tourist, goes to Paris to visit the art galleries. She decides to hire a guide to show her around the Louvre, "Oh" said Mrs. Stein looking at a painting, "That's a Monet, isn't it?" "No Madame, almost. It's a Manet." "And that one, it's a Pissarro?" "No I'm sorry Madame, that's a Monet." "Oh, I see. Now that one I'm sure of - that's a Picasso isn't it?" "…no Madame, that's a mirror."
