Joke of the Day – October 23: Something to Fall Back On
A young woman visited her parents, and brought her fiance’ to meet them. After an elaborate dinner, the mother told her husband to find out about the young man. The father invited the fiance’ to his library for a drink.
The father asked, “so, what are your plans?”
“I am a Torah scholar,” said the young man.
The father said, “a Torah scholar? Admirable, but what will you do to provide a nice house for my daughter to live in?”
“I will study,” said the fiance’, “and God will provide for us.”
“And how will you buy a beautiful engagement ring, such as she deserves?”
“I will concentrate on my studies, and study hard, and God will provide for us.”
The father asked, “any children? How will you support the children?”
“Don’t worry, sir,” said the young man, “God will provide.”
The conversation continued like this for a while and each time the father asked a question the young idealist insisted that God would provide.
Later, the mother asked the father, “how did it go, honey?”
The father answered, “well, he has no job, he has no plans, but the good news is he thinks I’m God.”
