I think kids won’t know how to do that accent! When I was little here in LA so many Jewish people had that old NY accent, with a little Yiddish in their speech. Now that generation is quite old. The accent is going and it’s sad.
Ya gotta do the accent to do the jokes. The funniest ones are a little off color. Here’s an example.
Morty was retired and finally made it to Florida. Walking along a deserted beach early one morning, he discovers a lamp in the sand. He gets out his old hanky and rubs it clean. Lo and behold, who should come out but a (all say it together) genie! The genie is thrilled to be let out f the lamp and grants Morty one wish. “Anything you want. Anything at all.”
Morty reaches into his pocket and pulls out a creased piece of paper. “Genie, this is a map of the Holy Land. Look here at little Israel, surrounded by her enemies, always living in war and fear. I’d love for you to give peace to the Holy Land.”.
The genie says, “Kind sir, my powers are great, but that wish... That wish is just too difficult for me. Is there anything at all else you might desire?”
Morty thinks. Finally he says, “You know, genie? My marriage has always been good but there is this one intimate act my wife has never done for me, you know the one. I’d like to sample that before I die.”
The genie says, “Lemme see that map again.”
Southern accents dying off too amongst richer souther gen y and milleniums
