The Butcher Joke


Mrs. Klein goes to the butcher. “I would like please a flank steak,” she says.

The butcher says, “That’s $2.29 a pound.”

“Get out of here with your $2.29,” Mrs. Klein says. “Down the block by Oppenheimer’s it’s $1.69 a pound.”

The butcher says, “So go by Oppenheimer.”

She says, “He hasn’t got any.”

The butcher says, “Lady, if I hadn’t got, I’d sell it to you for a buck and a half.”
