We all know that good humour is healthy and, why
not, you
could even call it therapeutic. Jewish Humour is
somehow
different.
To talk about Jewish Humour is to talk about
irony, philosophy
and psychology but even many chapters on these
subjects
would not be enough to come up with a proper
definition.
These images will try to give us some clues of
what Jewish
Humour is by means of one of its best performers: the
Yiddisher Mame.
