My Yiddish ‘Nonna’ With Knockers!

Definitely outdated humor…well past it’s time! As am I?

Did you know that on the 1930s/1940s Borscht Belt Comedy Circuit that Jewish women comedians were often referred to as Menstruating Minstrels?

Wait a minute!

Were there really Jewish women comedians during that ‘period!’

Wrong again Schmuck!

There was Milton Berle!


If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door! … Milton Berle

To which I add…

Or add knockers…

      3. And moving the antenna to get the best picture possible. And I still refer to a refrigerator as an icebox. Because it was ice that made it cold in the 1940s.

      5. But evolution is now being replaced by Devolution. We have easy access to all kinds of information and answers at the tip of our fingers.

        But we do not necessary know or retain more of this so-called knowledge.

        As Albert Einstein said in various ways, ‘information is not knowledge, experience is knowledge!’

        “Why and why not?” are the questions that we need to seek, research and answer!
