My Son, The Plumber
Two Jewish mothers were talking about their sons.
Sadie says, “I’ll have you know that my son is the #1 doctor in New York City.”
Minnie says, “So, I’ll have you know that my son is the #1 lawyer in New York City.”
Just then Shirley joins them. “What are you two talking about?” she asks.
“Our sons,” they smugly reply. “Do you have a son?”
“Oh, yes,” Shirley answers. “He’s a plumber in New York City ” (the other ladies look at her and let out a moan of pity.) ” and he’s gay!”
“Oh how tragic,” says Sadie with an air of superiority.
“Oh how sad,” says Minnie, gloating.
Shirley continues, “But he’s very happy. He has two wonderful lovers. One’s the #1 doctor in New York City and the other is the #1 lawyer in New York City!”
