Jewish Mothers – from Leo Rosten

One of my favorite jokes, a telling commentary on Jewish mothers
capacity to lay on guilt, involves the mother who gave her son two
neckties on Chanuka.

The boy hurried into his bedroom, ripped off the tie he was
wearing, put on one of the ties his mother had brought him, and hurried
back. Look, Mama! Isnt it gorgeous?

Mama asked, Whats the matter? You dont like the other one?
