 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.”
