INTRODUCTION    Today’s “Special”:  “Table for 3”:

A group of 40-year-old buddies – David, Michael and Steven – discussed where they should meet for dinner. Finally it was agreed upon that they should meet at the Ocean View Kosher Bar & Grill because the waiters and waitresses there were very young and very fast.

10 years later at 50 years of age, the group once again discussed where they should meet for dinner. Finally it was agreed that they should meet at the Ocean View Kosher Bar & Grill because the food there was very good and the wine selection was good also.

A logging company needed to hire another lumberjack, and the first guy to apply was a short little skinny fellow, who was laughed at by the manager and told to leave.

“Just give me a chance,” the little guy pleaded.

“Okay,” the manager replied, “Grab your axe and cut down that cedar over there.”

Two minutes later he was back at the manager’s office, “Tree’s cut. Do I get the job?”
