There is a well known Midrash about how God offered the Law to a number of nations, which all refused it, before He offered it to the Jews at Mt. Sinai. What isn’t known very well is the inside story.
God first went to the Egyptians and asked them if they would like a commandment.
“What’s a commandment?” they asked.
“Well, one of them goes, ‘Thou shalt not commit adultery,'” replied God.
The Egyptians thought about it and then said, “No way, that would ruin our weekends.”
So then God went to the Assyrians and asked them if they would like a commandment.
They also asked, “What’s a commandment?”
“Well,” said God, “one says, ‘Thou shalt not steal.'”
The Assyrians immediately replied, “No way. That would ruin our economy.”
So finally God went to the Jews and asked them if they wanted a commandment.
They asked, “How much?”
God said, “They’re free.”
The Jews said, “Great! We’ll take ten.”

Kosher Jewish jokes
Miriam and Moishe were in despair. Their 3 year old son David still had not learned how to talk. Not a word had escaped through those now 3-year-old lips.
One Friday night at Shabbos dinner, David took a taste of his pie, and to their utter surprise and amazement, said: “You call this matzah ball soup? It tastes like tasteless mush!”
Miriam and Moishe sat there in shock, for this was not just their son’s first sentence, but the first words he ever uttered! Once the initial shock had subsided, Moishe asked,
“Tell me David, how come you never spoke until now?”
“I never had any reason to,” explained David.
“There was nothing wrong with the soup until now.”

With a quizzical look the saleslady asked, “What kind of bra?”
He repeated “A Jewish bra. She said to tell you that she wanted a Jewish bra, and that you would know “what she means.”
“Ah, now I remember,” said the saleslady. “We don’t get as many requests for them as we used to. Mostly our customers lately want the Catholic bra, or the Salvation Army bra, or the Presbyterian bra.”
Confused, and a little flustered, the man asked, “So, what are the differences?”
The saleslady responded “It is all really quite simple. The Catholic bra supports the masses. The Salvation Army bra lifts up the fallen, and the Presbyterian bra keeps them staunch and upright.”
He mused on that information for a minute, and asked, “So, what does the Jewish bra do?”
“The Jewish bra,” she replied, “makes mountains out of molehills.”
