Sadie and Yetta, two widows, are talking. Sadie says, “That nice Morris Finkleman asked me out for a date. I know you went out with him last week, and I wanted to talk with you about him before I give him my answer.”
“Vell,” Yetta said. “I’ll tell you. He shows up at my apartment punctual like a clock. An like such a mench he is dressed. Fine suit, wonderful lining. And he brings me such beautiful flowers you could die from. Then he takes me downstairs, and what’s there but such a beautiful car. It’s a limousine even, uniformed chauffeur and all. Then he takes me out for a dinner, a marvelous dinner, lobster even. Den ve go see a show. Let me tell you Sadie, I enjoyed it so much I could just die from pleasure! So then we are coming back to my apartment, and into an Animal he turns. Completely crazy he goes. He tears off my expensive new dress and has his way with me two times!”
“Oy! Vey… so you are telling me I shouldn’t go out with him?” Sadie asks.
Yetta responds, “No. I’m just saying that if you go, wear an old dress!”
