I totally stole this... (213.2)
According to the Jewish calendar, it is 5771. But according to the Chinese calendar, it is 4707. This means that, for 1064 years, the Jews had to go without Chinese food. Thank goodness Jesus didn't come along until about 2,000 years ago, or Jewish people would have had nothing to eat on his birthday.

Thanks to tzikeh, and happy new year, all!

Joke is older than all of us combined, I think.

"He flew in from Ithaca, and boy are his arms tired!"
"Ithaca? Where's that? -- I dunno, ve flew!"

Oy, gevalt. :-) Actually, I love this old joke, and though I've heard the first part all my life, the last sentence is new to me.
