Three sons of a Yiddishe Mama left their homeland, went abroad and prospered. They discussed the gifts they were going to send their aging mother:

Avraham, the first, said, “I built a big house for our mother.”

Moishe, the second, said, “I sent her a Mercedes with a driver!”

David, the youngest, said, “You remember how our mother enjoys reading the Bible? But now she can’t see very well. So I sent her a remarkable parrot that recites the whole Bible – Mama just has to name the chapter and verse.”

Soon thereafter, a letter of thanks came from their mother:

“Avraham,” she said, “the house you built is so huge. I live in only one room, but I still have to clean the whole house.”

“Moishe,” she said, “I am too old to travel. I stay most of the time at home so I rarely use the Mercedes. And that driver has chutzpah – he’s a pain in the tuchas.”

“But David,” she said, “the chicken was delicious!”
