Kosher Teeth

Moisha Rabinowitz in the late 1930s fled his native land of Germany .

He sold all his assets and converted it to gold and then had 5 sets of

solid gold false teeth made.

When he arrived in New York the customs official was perplexed as to

why anybody would have 5 sets of gold teeth. So Moisha explained.

"We Orthodox Jews have two separate sets of dishes for meat products

and dairy products, but I am so kosher and religious I also have

separate sets of teeth."

The customs official shook his head and said, "Well that accounts for

two sets of teeth. What about the other three?"

Moisha then said "Vell us very religious Orthodox Jews use separate

dishes for Passover, but I am so religious I have separate teeth, one

for meat and one for dairy food.

The customs official slapped his head and then said, "You must be a

very religious man with separate teeth for food and dairy products and

likewise for Passover. That accounts for four sets of teeth. What about

the fifth set?"

"Vell to tell you the truth, once in a while I like a ham sandwich."
