An elderly Jewish man was called to testify in court.
"How old are you?" asked the District Attorney.
"I am, kayn aynhoreh, 81."
"What was that?"
"I said I am, kayn aynhoreh, 81 years old."
"Just answer the question!" yelled the D.A., "How old are you!?"
"Kayn aynhoreh, 81," the old man replied.
The judge said, "The witness will answer the question and only the question or be held in contempt of court!"
The counsel for the defense rose and asked the judge, "Your Honor, may I ask?" He turned towards the old man and said, "Kayn aynhoreh, how old are you?"
The old man replied, "Eighty-one."
