“Two gentile businessman meet on the street. One of them says, ‘How’s business?’ The other one says, ‘Great!”
Jerry Seinfeld was asked to tell a joke when he appeared on the Norm MacDonald Live show. On the spot, he came up with a joke and told the host that only Jewish people will understand this joke. As predicted by Seinfeld, neither Norm or Adam fully comprehended the levity of the comedy.
This joke went viral and many are arguing the meaning. Some say that only a gentile would say that business is great, or others are debating that the deeper meaning is that if they were Jewish they would find something to complain about.
Jerry Seinfeld is royalty among comedians and his colleagues might be too shy to ask for an explanation. This might be a riddle that is beyond explanation. Maybe there was just no joke!
