Be Knighted

A British Jew is waiting in line to be knighted by the Queen. He is to kneel in front of her and recite a sentence in Latin when she taps him on the shoulders with her sword. However, when his turn comes, he panics in the excitement of the moment and forgets the Latin. Then, thinking fast, he recites the only other sentence he knows in a foreign language, which he remembers from the Passover Seder:

“Ma nishtana ha layla ha zeh mi kol ha laylot.”

Puzzled, Her Majesty turns to her advisor and whispers, “Why is this knight different from all other knights?”


Hahahahaha!  Okay, I confess, it took me about a minute to get this one!  Shame on me!  Once I got it though, it cracked me up.  Open-mouthed smile

Kind of appropriate too, what with Passover coming up in a couple weeks!

Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. The joke is, what he says in Hebrew is what she said in English, only she didn’t know it. Passover celebrations are opened with that line, “what makes this night different from other nights?” So, it’s also a play on words kind of joke, only because half of the words are in Hebrew, it’s hard to get that, unless you know Hebrew, or are familiar with Passover celebrations.

      Having attended a Messianic church for a while, and still maintaining their website, I should be more familiar with both. Looks like I have some brushing up to do!
