Ditto

That's my mother, and we're not even Jewish! I've long loved Nichols and May. Genius.

Sounds exactly like me and my sons are good sports about it as well!

Too true. Even today. Now with cell phones kids only text

Too true even today. Now with cell phones kids only text. Even if they call they probably would have a hard time conversing . Soon it's going to be " mom ttyl "

Why pain makes you funny

Pain doesn't make everyone funny. It makes some people mean. But Jews don't like to be mean. They will if they absolutely have to but it feels unnatural. Humor is a strategy that helps relieve the pain. Other ways of responding to pain are violence, substance abuse, social withdrawal, self-destructive attitudes and anxiety. Jews have high moral values AND few ways to 'look away' from lapses. Humor about our shortcomings without ignoring them. I had clinical depression for years and humor was an important part of getting through it. Often dark humor, but humor nonetheless.
Humor is a gift. I'm not sure I'd be here to write this without it.

Oy vey!

I think my one line summery say it all! Not that the video wasn't funny but as the Jewish mother of two sons and two daughters, I raised them to be independent, self sufficient individuals who are NOT required to call me, nor are my grand daughters! And I am TOO busy to call them! Unless necessary!
