Dedicated in blessed memory of Richard Allen Julis who made us laugh and made us better Jews.
 

Shloimie Rabinowitz told all of his friends about the great corned beef sandwich he'd eaten at Yitz’s Deli the day before. So a group of his friends decided to join him and see if was really as large and delicious as Shloimie was making it out to be.

The group was seated in the back of the deli. After looking over the menu, they ordered and waited, hungrily, for their large, delicious, gigantic corned beef sandwiches.

To their collective disappointment, the waiter brought out some of the smallest corned beef sandwiches they'd ever seen.

"What is going on here?!” Shloimie exclaimed to the waiter. "Yesterday when I came down here you served me a BIG, juicy, corned beef sandwich. Today, though, when I have my friends with me, you serve small miniature corned beef sandwiches! What’s the deal?"

"It’s very simple sir," replied the waiter, "yesterday you were sitting by the window."
