|We were dining in a Chinese restaurant down in Chinatown, when my friend asked me, "Do you know if there are there any Jews in China?"|
"I don't know," I replied and suggested. "Why don't we ask the waiter?" and when he came by, "I asked if there were any Chinese Jews ?"
"I don't know, lep me ask," the waiter answered and disappeared into the kitchen. He quickly returned and said, "No. No Chinese Jews."
"Are you sure?" I asked.
"I go check again." the waiter replied and went back to the kitchen.
While he was still gone, my friend said, "I can't believe there are no Jews in China, after all, people are scattered everywhere these days."
When the waiter returned he said, "No Chinese Jews."
"Are you really sure?" I asked again. muttering, "I cannot believe there's no Chinese Jews."
"I ask everyone," the waiter replied exasperated. "We have orange jews, prune jews, tomato jews, apple juice and grape jews, but no one ever hear of Chinese jews!"
