No Chinese Jews

Bob and Tim were dining in a Chinese restaurant.

"Bob," asked Tim, "Are there any Jews in China?"

"I don't know," Bob replied. "Why don't we ask the waiter?"

When the waiter came by, Tim asked him, "Are there any Chinese Jews?"

"I am not sure, sir, let me ask," the waiter replied, and went into the kitchen.

He returned in a few minutes and said, "No, sir. No, Chinese Jews."

"Are you sure?" Tim asked.

"I will check again, sir," the waiter replied and went back to the kitchen.

While he was still gone, Bob said, "I cannot believe there are no Jews in China. Our people are scattered everywhere."

When the waiter returned he said, "Sir, no Chinese Jews."

"Are you really sure?" Tim asked again. "I cannot believe there are no Chinese Jews."

"Sir, I ask everyone," the waiter replied exasperated. "We have Orange Jews, Prune Jews, Tomato Jews and Grape Jews, but no Chinese Jews."
