    Klonsky's Shoe Repair

    Ira Kaplan hadn't returned to the old neighborhood since he went off to fight in Vietnam. During a business trip to New York he visited his old neighborhood on 170th street in the Bronx, noting that everything has changed over the years.

    Where once there was Edelstein’s Delicatessen, there was now a McDonald’s; where Fleischman’s Dry Cleaning (One-Hour Martinizing) used to be, a Korean nail salon and spa now was; where Ginsberg’s Department Store was, there was now a Gap. Nothing was the same, except for the narrow storefront of Klonsky’s Shoe Repair, which, dimly lit as ever, was still in business.

    As Kaplan passed the shop, he recalled (such are the quirks of memory that he does not know how) that just before he was drafted to go off to Vietnam, he had left a pair of shoes with Mr. Klonsky that he never bothered to pick up. Could they, he wondered, possibly still be there?

    A small bell tinkled as he entered the dark shop. Mr. Klonsky, who seemed old 40 years ago, shuffled out from the back. He was hunched over, wearing a leather apron, one eye all but closed.

    “Excuse me, Mr. Klonsky,” Kaplan said, “but I used to live in this neighborhood, and 40 years ago I left a pair of shoes with you for repair that I never picked up. Is there any chance you might still have them?”

    Klonsky starred at him and, in his strong Eastern European accent, asked, “Vas dey black vingtips?” “They were indeed,” Kaplan only now recalled. “And you vanted a halv sole, mit rubber heels?” “Yes,” Kaplan relied, “that’s exactly what I wanted.” “And you vanted taps on the heels only?” “Yes, yes,” said Kaplan, “amazing! Do you still have them?”

    Mr. Klonsky looked up at him, his good eye asquint, and announced, “Dey’ll be ready Vendsday.”

    Oliver Purblicoff was teeing off from the men's tee. On his down swing, he realized that his wife, Maureen, was teeing up on the woman's tee directly in front of him.

    Unable to stop his swing, he nailed it, and hit her directly in the temple, killing her instantly....

    A few days later, Oliver got a call from the coroner regarding her autopsy.

    Coroner: "Oliver, your wife seemed to have died from blunt force-trauma to the head. You said you hit a golf ball and hit her in the temple, is that correct?"

    Oliver: "Yes, sir, that's correct."

    Coroner: "Well, inexplicably, I found a golf ball wedged up her butt."

    Oliver: "Was it a Titleist 3?"

    Coroner: "Yes, it was."

    Oliver: "That was my mulligan."

    The Philosopher With a jaundiced look @ Life

    ♦I read that 4,153,237 people got married last year. Not to cause any trouble, but shouldn't that be an even number?

    ♦ I find it ironic that the colors red, white, and blue stand for freedom until they are flashing behind you.

    ♦When wearing a bikini, women reveal 90% of their body. Men are so polite they only look at the covered parts.

    ♦ Relationships are a lot like algebra. Have you ever looked at your X and wondered Y?

    ♦America is a country which produces citizens who will cross the ocean to fight for democracy but won't cross the street to vote.

    ♦You know that tingly little feeling you get when you love someone? That's your common sense leaving your body.

    ♦ My therapist says I have a preoccupation with vengeance. We'll see about that.

    ♦I think my neighbor is stalking me as she's been Googling my name on her computer. I saw it through my telescope last night.

    ♦Money talks ... but all mine ever says is good-bye.

    ♦You're not fat, you're just easier to see.

    ♦If you think nobody cares whether you're alive, try missing a couple of payments.

    ♦I always wondered what the job application is like at Hooters. Do they just give you a bra and say, "Here, fill this out?"

    ♦ I can't understand why women are OK that J C Penny has an older women's clothing line named, "Sag Harbor."

    ♦ Denny's has a slogan, "If it's your birthday, the meal is on us." If you're in Denny's and it's your birthday, your life sucks!

    ♦The location of your mailbox shows you how far away from your house you can go in a robe before you start looking like a mental patient.

    ♦I think it's pretty cool how Chinese people made a language entirely out of tattoos.

    ♦ The reason Mayberry was so peaceful and quiet was because nobody was married. Andy, Aunt Bea, Barney, Floyd, Howard,
    Goober, Gomer, Sam, Earnest T Bass, Helen, Thelma Lou, Clara and, of course, Opie, were all single. The only married person was Otis and he stayed drunk.

    Now, go have a nice day, or whichever kind of day you want.

    Ole and Sven die in a snowmobiling accident, drunker than skunks, and go to Hell. The Devil observes that they are really enjoying themselves. He says to them 'Doesn't the heat and smoke bother you?' Ole replies, 'Vell, ya know, ve're from nordern Minnesooota, da land of snow an ice, an ve're yust happy fer a chance ta varm up a little bit, ya know.’

    The devil decides that these two aren't miserable enough and turns up the heat even more. When he returns to the room of the two from Minnesota , the devil finds them in light jackets and hats, grilling Walleye and drinking beer. The devil is astonished and exclaims, 'Everyone down here is in misery, and you two seem to be enjoying yourselves?' Sven replies, 'Vell, ya know, ve don't git too much varm veather up dere at da Falls, so ve've yust got ta haff a fish fry vhen da veather's dis nice.’

    The devil is absolutely furious. He can hardly see straight. Finally he comes up with the answer. The two guys love the heat because they have been cold all their lives. The devil decides to turn all the heat off in Hell. The next morning, the temperature is 60 below zero, icicles are hanging everywhere, and people are shivering so bad that they are unable to wail, moan or gnash their teeth. The devil smiles and heads for the room with Ole and Sven. He gets there and finds them back in their parkas, bomber hats, and mittens. They are jumping up and down, cheering, yelling and screaming like mad men.

    The devil is dumbfounded, 'I don't understand, when I turn up the heat you're happy. Now its freezing cold and you're still happy. What is wrong with you two?’

    They both look at the devil in surprise and say, 'Vell, don't ya know, if hell iss froze over, dat must mean da Vikings von da Super Bowl.
