Thinking of jokes

I mentioned to Last Liberal Standing that we should share popcorn at a movie together and that got me to thinking. You’d never believe it, but (some) real estate lawyers have a sense of humor, notably, the two Kaye brothers, Joel and Jeremy and their honorary brother, Tom Ward, who was abandoned as an infant on the Kaye doorstep and raised as a Gentile in a Jewish home.

You would expect Tom and Joel to have a wicked sense of humor, and they do, but if you ever have the good fortune to have a closing with Jeremy, as buyer or seller, you really must insist – put it in the sales contract, if need be – that Jeremy agree to tell you both his jury picking/goat f”’ing joke and his popcorn/Parkinson’s Disease story. Not only does the guy have his accents down perfectly, but coming from such a sweet looking, soft speaking guy (unless you’re negotiating with him) the shock of hearing risqué jokes is doubly hilarious.

My real estate tip of the day.

    Jeremy handled a mortgage refinancing for us a couple of years ago and, in addition to his very professional demeanor and legal expertise, I can attest to his sharply honed, clever sense of humor which surfaced once I mentioned your name, Chris…we enjoyed a several laughs at your expense. He did not, however, share his “jury picking/goat f”’ing joke and his popcorn/Parkinson’s Disease story” as we’d just met that day. Hopefully, I’ll have the opportunity to meet with Jeremy in the future so I may hear these stories!

  2. I remember Joel Kaye from Eastern Junior HS — very sweet, smart, funny guy — but I had no idea his parents were such peaches to take in an abandoned baby left on their doorstep. I didn’t even know such things happened except in the movies.

    Tom (in the golf club clubhouse): Say, John, when did you start wearing pantyhose?

    John: Ever since my wife found them in the glove compartment.

    You’re Welcome.

  4. Oh ho! Still, kudos to them.
