…And the last Line is the Punch line

A yeshiva student who was visiting in San Diego, California last week told me the following:

He stopped at a rather large modern home for the purpose of checking out the site for the upcoming Sukkot holiday on instructions from the homeowner, with the intent of measuring the perimeter of the patio to determine the length of boards that would be needed for a new Sukkah.
The woman of the home proudly showed him the new mezuzah that had been put up on the doorway. The bocher remarked that it was a really a beautiful case. So the woman says, “Yes it is, and it even came with the manufacturers’ instructions rolled up inside of it in Hebrew, so I threw them out. After all, who doesn’t know how to put up a mezuzah?”
