Arab Humour

image An Arab family in New York was considering putting their grandfather in a nursing home. Since most of the facilities were completely full, they had to put him in a Jewish home.

After a few weeks in the Jewish facility, they came to visit. "How do you like it here?" asks Jido,the grandson . "It's wonderful! Everyone here is so courteous and respectful," says grandpa.

"We're so happy for you. We were worried that this was the wrong place. You know, since you're a little different from everyone else here."

"Oh, not at all! Let me tell you about how wonderfully they treat the residents here," grandpa says with a big smile. "There's a musician here. He's 85 years old. He hasn't played the violin in 20 years and everyone still calls him 'Maestro'! And there's a judge in here, too. He's 95 years old. He hasn't been on the bench in 30 years and everyone still calls him 'Your Honor'! And then there's a physician here. 90 years old. He hasn't been practicing medicine for 25 years and everyone still calls him 'Doctor'!"

"And what about you, Jido?" asks the grandson.

"Me....? Well, I haven't had sex for 35 years but they still call me 'The f***ing A-rab'!"
