HILARIOUS JOKES AND HUMOR ARCHIVES


Walking through San Francisco's Chinatown, a recent tourist from the Midwest was fascinated with all the Chinese restaurants, shops, signs and banners. One particular building, however, caught his eye with the sign "Moishe Plotnik's Chinese Laundry."

"Moishe Plotnik?" he wondered. "How does that fit in Chinatown?"

So he walked into the shop and saw a fairly standard looking Chinese laundry. He could see that the proprietors were clearly aware of the uniqueness of the name as there were baseball hats, T-Shirts and coffee mugs emblazoned with the logo "Moishe Plotnik's Chinese Laundry."

There was also a fair selection of Chinatown souvenirs, indicating that the name alone had brought many tourists into the shop. The tourist selected a coffee cup as a conversation piece to take back to his office.

Behind the counter was a smiling old Chinese gentleman who thanked him for his purchase in English, thickly accented with Chinese.

"Can you tell me how this place got a name like "Moishe Plotnik's Chinese Laundry?" the tourist asked.

The kind gentleman answered, "Ahh... Everybody ask that. Is name of owner."

"Oh.. is he here now?"

"He is right here," replied the kind gentleman. "He is me."

"Really? How did you receive a name like Moishe Plotnik?" the tourist asked.

"Is simple," said the kind gentleman. "Many, many year ago when come to this country, was stand in line at Documentation Center. Man in front is Jewish gentleman from Poland. Lady look at him and say, 'What your name?' He say, 'Moishe Plotnik.' Then she look at me and say, 'What your name?'"

"I say, 'Sam Ting.'"


Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. -Revelation 3:12
