    Also, my 90 year-old Grandpa informed me, after finding out that none of his outbuildings collapsed while he was in Arizona, that he "made out like a Jew in Junkyard."

    I laughed, but awkwardly.

    Olds.

    Definitely Olds. Wouldn't find a Jew anywhere near a junkyard today.

    I have not heard that one. I can remember my late father stating that "Jewish lightning" was about strike one of his rentals after about the 4th thing needed fixed in a week. He would be 102 now.

    Wow. We mock the snowflakes for being sensitive, but people really used to talk this way. Crazy.

    Probably would have told your old man that a drunk mick should be so lucky and then shake hands.

    So Morty and Sammy are taking a steam in a hotel in Miami Beach.

    Morty: Nu? What did you do?
    Sammy: I had a schmatte factory, but it burned down. How about you?
    Morty: I had a schmatte factory too, but we had a flood.

    Sammy thinks for awhile....

    Sammy: So Morty, how do you have a flood?

    Unfortunately you don't have to look far to find people that still do. It has gotten a lot better though, even compared to the 80's
