A Jewish couple inLondonwon twenty-million pounds in the lottery.
They bought a magnificent mansion in Knightsbridge and surrounded
themselves with all the material wealth imaginable.
They decided to hire a butler. They found the perfect butler through an
agency, very proper and very British, and brought him back to their home.
The day after his arrival, he was instructed to set up the dining table for four,
as they were inviting the Cohens to lunch. The couple then left the house
to do some shopping .
When they returned, they found the table set for eight. Perplexed, they
asked the butler why it was set for eight when they had expressly asked
him to set it for four.
The butler replied, “The Cohens telephoned and said they were bringing
the Blintzes and the Knishes.”
