This is one of the cartoons I posted before leaving for China on a speaking tour sponsored by SIGNAL (the Sino Israel Global Network Academic Leadership). I’ll be the keynote speaker at the inaugural event of the first-ever Israel Studies Program in the history of China …and am appearing at a number of other universities and think tanks.
I plan to return home to Israel on or about November 1st.

Sadie Cohen lived in an integrated neighborhood on Long Island. Her neighbor was a very generous black woman who stopped in one Saturday and
asked, “Mrs. Cohen, I have to go to NYC this afternoon to meet my daughter, can I get you anything?”
Mrs. Cohen thanked her and exclaimed “Listen, I have a commuter’s ticket for the train. Why don’t you use my ticket and you’ll bring it back tonight. After all, it’s all paid for – why should you pay extra.”
The neighbor thanked her and got on the train. As the conductor came through the train, he happened to glance at the ticket and noticed the name “Sadie Cohen”.
“Excuse me madam, are you Sadie Cohen the person whose name appears on this ticket?”
The woman smiled sweetly and shook her head affirmatively.
A little suspicious, the conductor asked “Would you let me compare signatures – would you please sign your name?”
The black lady became very indignant and snapped, “Man are you crazy? You want me to write on Shabbos?”

I took my dad to the mall the other day to buy some new shoes (he is 66).
We decided to grab a bite at the food court. I noticed he was watching a teenager sitting next to him. The teenager had spiked hair in all different colors – green, red,
orange, and blue.
My dad kept staring at her.
The teenager kept looking and would find my dad staring every time. When the teenager had had enough, she sarcastically asked: “What’s the matter old man, never done anything wild in your life?”
Knowing my Dad, I quickly swallowed my food so that I would not choke on his response; I knew he would have a good one! In classic style he responded without batting an eyelid …
“Got stoned once and had sex with a parrot. I was just wondering if you might be my kid.”
