Laugh a little

We all receive jokes by email, but I've found a very large collection of Jewish jokes at a website called  That website's creator, David Minkoff, has given permission for jokes on his website to be reproduced here.

The Talking Centipede

Not being married, David decides that life would be more fun if he had a pet. So he goes to his local pet shop and tells the owner that he wants to buy something unusual.

After some discussion, he decides to buy a rare talking centipede which comes in a little white box for use as the centipede's house. 

David takes the box with his new friend inside back home and finds a good place for it. 

Next day, he decides he'd like to take his new pet to shul with him.

So he goes over to the box and asks the centipede, "Would you like to go to shul with me today? We will have a good time."

But there is no answer from his new pet in the box. This bothers David a bit, so he waits a few minutes and then asks again, "How about going to shul with me and receive some blessings?"

But there is still no answer from his new pet. So David waits a few more minutes thinking about the situation and then decides to invite the centipede one last time.

This time, David puts his face right up against the centipede's box and shouts, "Hey in there! Would you like to go to shul with me and learn about G-d?"

This time, a little voice is heard from inside the box. "I heard you the first time, David! It just takes me a while to put on my shoes!"
