Two old Jewish men, Sid and Abe, are sitting in a Mexican restaurant one day.

Sid asks Abe, "Do you know if any people of our ancestry were ever born and raised in Mexico?"

Abe replies, "I don't know, let's ask our waiter."

When the waiter arrives, Abe asks, "Are there any Mexican Jews?"

The waiter says, "I don't know senor, I ask the cooks."

"He returns from the kitchen after a few minutes and says,

"No senor, the cook say no Mexican Jews."

Abe isn't satisfied and asks, "Are you absolutely sure?"

The waiter, realizing he is dealing with "Gringos" replies,

"I check once again, senor," and goes back into the kitchen.

While the waiter is away, Sid says, "I find it hard to believe that

there are no Jews in Mexico ... our people are scattered everywhere."

The waiter returns and says,

"Senor, the head cook Manuel, he say there is no Mexican Jews."

"Are you certain?" Abe asks again. "I just can't believe there are no Mexican Jews!"

"Senor, I ask EVERYONE," replies the exasperated waiter.

"All we have is Orange Jews, Grape Jews, Prune Jews, Tomato Jews and Apple Jews, but no Mexican Jews."

 Veteran's Day Tribute to

OHS 1958 Classmate 

Colonel C. J. Peters, MD

Historical Photo posted below on Veterans Day for U.S. Army Colonel Clarence James Peters, MD (OHS 1958)

All of us who who knew CJ (Pete) at Odessa High School (1956-1958) recognized he was Special and would likely achieve Great Things in his life. The captions below all of CJ's photos should read:

“Super Achiever” (and Really Nice Guy!)”

Thanks to C J's wife, Susan Peters, Ph.D, for providing this Historical Photo of CJ receiving the first  "United States Army National Research Institute of Infectious Diseases" award which was approved by Congress and awarded to a scientist whose career/research has been outstanding! It has only been awarded 3 times to date. This prestigious award was named by the U.S. Congress and the U.S. Army "THE C. J. PETERS AWARD" in honor of its first recipient.

CJ AND SUSAN PETERS, MAGGIANO'S, GALVESTON, TX, Sept 2019,


 

     You Think English is EASY?  

(Read to the end)
 

1) The bandage was wound around the wound.

2) The farm was used to produce produce .

3) The dump was so full that it had to refuse more refuse.

4) We must polish the Polish
furniture.. 

5) He could lead if he would get the lead out..

6) The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert.

7) Since there is no time like the present, he thought it was

    time to present the present.

8) A bass was painted on the head of the bass drum.

9) When shot at, the dove dove into the bushes.

10) I did not object to the object.

11) The insurance was invalid for the invalid.

12) There was a row among the oarsmen about how to row

13) They were too close to the door to close it.

14) The buck does funny things when the does are present.

15) A seamstress and a sewer fell down into a sewer line.

16) To help with planting, the farmer taught his sow to sow.

17) The wind was too strong to wind the sail. 


18) Upon seeing the tear in the painting I shed a tear.

19) I had to subject the subject to a series of tests...

20) How can I intimate this to my most intimate friend?


Let's face it - English is a crazy language.

 There is no egg in eggplant, nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple.

English muffins weren't invented in England or French fries in France.

Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads are not bread or sweet, but meat.

We take English for granted..  

But if we explore its paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.

And why is it that writers write but fingers don't fing, grocers don't groce and hammers don't ham?

If the plural of tooth is teeth,   why isn't the plural of booth, beeth? One goose, 2 geese. So one moose, 2 meese? One index, 2 indices?  

Doesn't it seem crazy that you can make amends but not one amend?

If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them, what do you call it?  
 
If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught? If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat?  

Sometimes I think all the English speakers should be committed to an asylum for the verbally insane.

In what language do people recite at a play and play at a recital? Ship by truck and send cargo by ship? Have noses that run and feet that smell?

Why do we drive on a Parkway but park on a driveway?  How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites?

You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language in which your house can burn up as it burns down, in which you fill in a form by filling it out and in which, an alarm goes off by going on.

English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects the creativity of the human race, which, of course, is not a race at all. That is why, when the stars are out, they are visible, but when the lights are out, they are invisible.

PS. - Why doesn't 'Buick' rhyme with 'quick' ?

 

English language lovers might enjoy this.  
 
There is a two-letter word that perhaps has more meanings than any other two-letter word, and that is UP. It's easy to understand  UP, meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list, but when we awaken in the morning, why do we wake UP? At a meeting, why does a topic come UP? Why do we speak UP and why are the officers UP for election and why is it UP to the secretary to write UP a report? We call  UP our friends.

And we use it to brighten  UP a room, polish  UP the silver; we warm  UP the leftovers and clean  UP the kitchen. We lock  UP the house and some guys fix  UP the old car. At other times the little word has real special meaning. People stir  UP trouble, line UP for tickets, work UP an appetite, and think UP excuses.

To be dressed is one thing, but to be dressed UP is special. And this UP is confusing: A drain must be opened UP because it is stopped UP. We open UP a store in the morning but we close it UP at night.

We seem to be pretty mixed UP about UP ! To be knowledgeable about the proper uses of UP , look the word UP in the dictionary. In a desk-sized dictionary, it takes UP almost 1/4th of the page and can add UP to about thirty definitions. If you are UP to it, you might try building UP a list of the many ways UP is used. It will take UP a lot of your time, but if you don't give UP , you may wind UP with a hundred or more.

When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding UP . When the sun comes out we say it is clearing UP. When it rains, it wets the earth and often messes things UP . When it doesn't rain for awhile, things dry UP .

One could go on and on, but I'll wrap it  UP for now my time is UP , so it is time to shut UP !   Oh, one more thing:

What is the first thing you do in the morning & the last thing you do at night? U-P
