Geez, Larry! You are absolutely merciless! ;-) But that does remind me
of another one. Unfortunately, I'm no longer sure how the joke went,
but it was something like this.

In the men's room, a couple of guys are standing side-by-side taking a
leak. One speaks.

You're a member of Congregation Beth Israel.

Why, yes! But how'd you know?!

Rabbi Milstein is the mohel there. He always cuts left and you're
pissing on my right foot.

(Yes, I realize that it takes a certain suspension of disbelief or,
failing that, complete ignorance. Either the mohel was a total
incompetent or he was a total butcher.)
