9781481118637: Jewish Humor on Your Desktop: Volume 5: Yiddish is a Funny Language

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.

About the Author:

Al Kustanowitz founded Jewish Humor Central, an internet blog, in 2009, to bring a daily dose of fun and merriment to readers who would otherwise start the day reading news that is often drab, dreary, and depressing. Each day thousands of subscribers in 160 countries get it by email, Facebook, and Twitter. Subscriptions are free. The blog posts vary from day to day, and include jokes, satire, books, music, films, videos, food, unbelievable but true news items, and anything that brings a grin, chuckle, laugh, guffaw, or just a warm feeling to readers. Most are new, and some are classics. A long-term devotee of Jewish humor, Al has collected it even before there was an internet. For the last 25 years he has been editor and publisher of The Kustanowitz Kronikle, originally a family newsletter that went public when the Purim editions became too popular to keep private. Now they're all available on the internet. In 2012, Al wrote a series of seven interactive eBooks with the series title Jewish Humor on Your Desktop. The seven volumes are subtitled: Volume 1: Old Jokes and New Comedians Volume 2: Israel is a Funny Country Volume 3: Humor in Jewish Life - You Can't Make This Stuff Up Volume 4: Jewish Traces in Unexpected Places Volume 5: Yiddish is a Funny Language Volume 6: Jewish Holiday Hilarity Volume 7: Yiddishe Nachas All seven volumes and the complete collection in a single volume are available at Amazon.com. In 2013, Al will be delivering lectures on Jewish humor at synagogues, Jewish Community Centers, and other locations. If you are interested in booking a presentation on the general topic of Jewish Humor on Your Desktop or on any of the topics covered in the volumes of the series, you can reach him by e-mail at akustan@gmail.com.
