Yankel Goldstein, in his late 80s and still gainfully employed as a ribbon
salesman, has been trying, unsuccessfully, to sell ribbon to Macy's for
Last week, he made another attempt to speak with the anti-Semitic buyer.
"Goldstein," the buyer says laughingly, "you've been trying to sell me
ribbon for at least the last 25 years or so. Now, here is your chance..
Send me enough yellow ribbon to reach from the tip of your nose to the tip of your penis."
Three days later, four tractor trailers full of yellow ribbon drive up to
Macy's receiving dock. The ribbon buyer goes ballistic.
He calls Goldstein and yells, "You putz, what's going on here? I only
ordered enough yellow ribbon to reach from the tip of your nose to the tip of your penis, and you send me four trailer-loads full of it!"
Goldstein replies calmly in a soft voice: "The tip of my penis is in Poland ."
