Gifts for Momma



 	Three sons of a Yiddishe Momma left their homeland, went abroad 
	and prospered.  They discussed the gifts they were able to give 
	their old mother.
 
 	Avraham, the first, said:  "I built a big house for our mother."
 
 	Moishe, the second, said:  "I sent her a Mercedes with a driver."
 
 	David, the youngest, said:  "You remember how our mother enjoys 
	reading the Bible.  Now she can't see very well.  I sent her a 
	remarkable parrot that recites the whole bible.  Momma just has to 
	name the chapter and verse."
 
 	Soon thereafter, a letter of thanks came from their mother.
 
 	"Avraham", she said, "the house you built is so huge.  I live only 
	in one room, but I have to clean the whole house."
 
 	"Moishe", she said, "I am too old to travel.  I stay most of the 
	time at home so I rarely use the Mercedes.  And that driver has 
	shpilkas -- he's a pain in the tuchas."
 
 	"But David", she said, "the chicken was DELICIOUS!"
