So how come if you find a particularly careful butcher, you never
call him a total mohel?

Then there's the woman who's visiting Israel and notices her watch
needs a battery. She doesn't read Hebrew but she finally sees a shop
with clocks and watches in the window.  She goes in and hands the man
her clock. The man says, "Madam, I don't repair clocks. I am a mohel."
She asks, "Then why all the clocks in the window?"
And he says, "And what *should* I have in my window?"
