A lady lost her purse in the bustle of shopping at the mall. It was found by an honest little boy, who returned it to her.
Looking in her purse, she commented, “Hmm, that’s funny. When I lost my bag, there was a $20 bill in it. Now there are twenty $1 bills.”

Sid and Al were sitting in a Chinese restaurant.
“Sid,” asked Al, “Are there any Jews in China?”
“I don’t know,” Sid replied. “Why don’t we ask the waiter?”
When the waiter came by, Al said, “Are there any Chinese Jews?”

He quickly returned and said, “No, sir. No Chinese Jews.”
“Are you sure?” Al asked.
“I will check again, sir.” the waiter replied and went back to the kitchen.
While he was still gone, Sid said, “I cannot believe there are no Jews in China. Our people are scattered everywhere.”

“Oh yeah? What’s the problem?”
“Well I asked her if she could learn to love me,” he replied.
“Yeah…and?” I pried further. “and she asked me how much I was willing to spend on her education.

“What’s the charge? Mr. Schwarz demanded.
“None,” replied the officer. “It’s all part of the service.”
“Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let go and allow people to hurl themselves into their own destiny. And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it’s all over.”
