It's Just Not Kosher

Moishie Brown is one of the friendliest people around – he's always looking for opportunities to help. Today, he's doing some shopping at the supermarket when he sees a mother with a young son in the chocolate aisle. The boy had just taken a bar of chocolate from the shelf and his mother is shouting at him, "Peter, put that down at once. You know it's not kosher."

As the boy is quietly putting the chocolate bar back on the shelf, Moishie Brown goes over to her and says, "Shalom madam. Did you know that this supermarket has a nice kosher section here in the store. Would you like me to show you where it is?"

"No thank you," she replies. "Why on earth would I want to go to the kosher section? I'm not Jewish."

"Oh I'm so sorry, I didn't know," replies Moishie Brown. "But why did you tell your boy to put back the chocolate bar because it wasn't kosher?"

"Because I'm always hearing the Jewish mothers say that to their children, and it always works for them."
