Monday’s Jokes, Quotes, Quizzlers and Teases!


Here’s The Story……
Ben Shapiro, an intensely musical individual, was burdened with a brother-in-law who had the
virtue of being a successful businessman, but who was undeniably the least cultured person in
town. Ben found this very humiliating and labored to introduce the poor creature to the finer things in life.

At last, through much effort, Ben persuaded his brother-in-law to accompany him to a presentation of the
opera ‘Carmen’. He held his breath, fearing some last-minute event would spoil everything, but the day
came and Ben and his brother-in-law actually entered the opera house and took their places in an excellent box.

To Ben’s satisfaction the opera seemed to catch his brother-in-law’s fancy at once. He listened open-mouthed
and round-eyed, following every move and absorbing every note.

Ben was absolutely triumphant when, as they were leaving the theater, his brother-in-law was singing under
his breath, “To-ray-a-dor-uh, guard-un! To-ray-a-dor, To-ray-a-dor!”

Ben said, beaming, “So you like the Toreador Song, do you?”

His brother-in-law replied with excitement, “Of course I do! And as a practical businessman I’m not afraid of
making a prediction, either. I’m telling you, that song’s going to be a hit!”

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a GREAT MONDAY people, stay safe, and
whatever you do, don’t forget to laff it up! Peace, I am outta here! Eucman! 😁
