That was funny! But having parents who spoke Yiddish around the house when I was a kid, I know that ANYTHING spoken in Yiddish is always going to be funnier!

Oh Millie! I enjoyed the joke! I don't understand much Yiddish, I can catch one word here and there. As my father was from Bulgaria, he didn't speak Yiddish, only my mother did.
I also enjoyed seeing you! Thank you.

Danielle said...

That was great Millie! Thanks, I needed a good laugh :o)
All the best!

You warm my heart! My Great Aunt always had a joke to share- sometimes her jokes were interspersed with Yiddish- and she always laughed at the end of her own jokes, just as you did-
Thanks for sharing!

Millie, you are adorable! I found this as I was searching for Yiddish classes, and this just reinforced my interest! and do I detect a Boston accent?

You are right, I am a Bostonian.

Good luck finding a class, if you find a good one,
let me know.

I wrote this in Yiddish so as not to spoil the joke. Maybe you might want to teach this joke on your next video. BTW, you class are great! Simcha
