Jewish Humor on Your Desktop is a series of seven interactive books that bring hundreds of funny Jewish anecdotes to your favorite screen - desktop or laptop computer, Kindle, IPad, iPhone, Android phone or tablet. This book is Volume 5: Yiddish is a Funny Language. This book presents anecdotes and associated video clips that illustrate the colorful humor associated with the Yiddish language. Whether it's Yiddish jokes, Yiddish words and expressions, Yiddish song and dance, Yiddish in theater and film, or Yiddish cooking, you will chuckle at the ways this language of an Eastern Europe that was thought to be long gone has permeated modern Jewish life around the world today. The anecdotes and video clips are based on three years and more than 900 entries from Jewish Humor Central, a blog written by Al Kustanowitz, who has been studying, chronicling, and delivering Jewish humor for more than 30 years. In the e-book version, most of the anecdotes include a highlighted link that goes directly to the video clip when you click on it while reading it on your electronic device. In this print version the links appear as URLs that you will have to type into your browser address bar if you want to see the video. If you're reading this book away from your computer, the anecdotes alone should be a source of entertainment.
