Preparing for Passover involves a thorough house cleaning. While you are doing that, here are some jokes to ease the experience.

Passover, or Pesach as it is called in Hebrew, is the 8 day festival where the Jews celebrate their liberation from Egypt more than a thousand years ago. One of the most important features of this freedom festival is that the Jews cannot eat anything that is leavened. They eat unleavened bread.

They must also make sure that no bread crumbs exist in or around the house: the cupboards, the drawers, the kitchen, behind the bed, under the refrigerator and anywhere else where crumbs might have fallen through. To ensure that the house is clean of leavened food materials, the Jews have to clean the entire house from top to bottom as thoroughly as possible. And they do. During the week before Passover, house cleaning is what goes on in most Jewish houses. To answer this demand and to ease the tension, here is a joke on this subject called Impossible Timing, which highlights this cleaning tension.

Impossible Timing:
Samuel, an observant Jew, who was also a financial wizard, left Brooklyn to accept the position of Vice President in a famous broker firm in Utah, which is well known for being a Mormon state.

When they learned this, the company’s directorate applied tremendous pressure on the company’s president. “We are religious people here,” they said. “It can’t be that a Jew will handle all our money.”

The president tried to ward them off, but when he couldn’t manage it anymore, he called Samuel to his office and explained the situation to him. Samuel was offered the choice of either converting or leaving the attractive job which also had a six figure salary quote attached to it.

Samuel had no choice but to convert, and he went home and told his wife that from Sunday, they will start attending the Church services.

A few months went by and his wife kept troubling Samuel about the conversion. “This is too difficult for me. I miss the Sabbath: lighting candles and blessing the wine. I miss the holidays. Money is not everything, Samuel dear.”

And with each time that his wife complained, Samuel’s conscience increased until he could not take it anymore and he went to meet the company’s President.
“Look, I can’t go on like this,” Samuel said. “I am full of regret. Money is not everything. I can’t sleep and neither can my wife. This is too heavy a burden for me to carry. I was born a Jew and I want to die a Jew. And if you want me to quit, I will without making any trouble.”

The President looked at him in wonder, “Listen, Samuel, I had no idea that this was so difficult for you. I thought it was a trivial matter. But you don’t have to leave. Everything will be the same as before: you can stay here with us without converting.

Samuel returned home happy and grinning from ear to ear. He ran to his wife, who was watching Ricky Lake, “You won’t believe it! It’s a miracle. We are going back to being Jews, and I still retain my job.”

His wife looked at him with eyes that spat fire, and said,” Are you mad?”

Samuel was shocked. “But I thought that this is what you wanted!” He cut in. “All this while you have been crying and complaining. Don’t you wish to go back to becoming a Jew””

His wife looked at him with ever more fury, “Of course I want to. Of course I want to,” she said. “But now? Only a week before Passover?”

“Laughter is the best medicine” — who doesn’t know this popular adage? Laughter is not a cure for cancer or other degenerative diseases, but doctors and the medical professionals found that it increases treatment receptiveness in patients. Scientists researching about psychoneuroimmunology are discovering that there is a crucial connection between a person’s mind and body. This is particularly manifested by the body’s ability to heal through mental stimulation. Laughter appears to change brain chemistry and boosts the body’s immune system. Through the recent development in medicine, this popular saying becomes a fact. Humour therapy aids in healing by promoting good feeling, laughter, and smiles. Sometimes called therapeutic humour, this type of therapy is fast gaining popularity among medical institutions worldwide.

Now, medical institutions are using humorous and fun activities to excite and give their patients excitement. Clowns, story-telling, puppet shows, and other fun activities are regularly presented in hospitals’ kiddie wards. These activities cheer up the sick children and — since they usually contain subliminal messages — encourage them to take medications. Humour carts also circulate in some hospitals. These carts have supplies of joke books, humorous stories, and other funny materials for the adult patients. Nurse training also includes lessons on cheering patients up.

Humour therapy provides other benefits aside from increasing treatment receptiveness and making patients happy. The therapy allows patients to see situations in a lighter perspective. The frustration of being confined in a hospital is decreased and the patients feel more in control. Other than this, the therapy enables patients to release negative emotions like fear, anger, and stress in a positive way. Although these benefits don’t cure the diseases, they make the effects bearable for those who are sick. There are also studies that prove laughter to be a preventive measure against diseases. Stress and other negative emotions are known to have debilitating effects on a person’s health. By releasing these emotions through laughter, the risks of being stressed and burned-out are minimized.

Aside from these benefits, therapeutic humour is also easy to practice. A comic book, a puzzle, or watching a funny show is enough to give patients a good time. Simply having a good laugh over nonsense qualifies a humour therapy. If these are not enough, there are joke sites in the internet that offer funny stuff. But remember that laughter cannot cure diseases by itself. It is just a complement to a traditional medical treatment.
