Name Game

Three brothers just got off the boat at Ellis Island from Poland and are questioned by an Immigration Officer, who asks the first, "What is your name?"

 

"Beryl" he replies.

 

The Officer says, "Beryl? You can't have a name like that in America. From now on your name is 'Buck.'"

 

He turns to the second brother and says, "What is your name?"

 

"Chaiml" he replies.

 

"Chaiml? You can't have a name like that in America. From now on your name will be 'Chuck!'"

 

He then asks the third brother, "And what's your name?"

 

"Schmerl," he replies, "And I'm going back to Poland!"
