The Distinguished Gentleman
Two elderly widows, Rhoda Epstein and Norma Rabinowitz, were curious about the latest arrival in their retirement residence in Boca Raton, Florida. He was a quiet, distinguished gentleman who seemed to believe in keeping to himself.
One day Rhoda said: "Norma, you're so much more confident in these matters. Why don't you approach him at the pool and find out a little more about him? He looks so lonely."
So Norma went over to talk to the man as he sat by the pool. "My friend and I were wondering why you look so lonely," she said.
"Of course I'm lonely," he snapped. "I've spent the last 30 years in prison."
"I strangled my third wife."
"Oy. What happened to your second wife?"
"We had a fight and she fell off a high building."
"Oy vey!" Then Norma turned to her friend on the other side of the pool and called out: "Yoo hoo, Rhoda! He's single!"
