He Will Provide

Mr. Shwartz goes to meet his new son-in-law to be, Sol.

He says to Sol (who is very religious), "So nu, tell me Sol my boy what do you do?"

"I study the Torah," he replies.

"But Sol, you are going to marry my daughter, how are going to feed and house her?"

"No problem," says Sol, "I study Torah and it says G-d will provide."

"But you will have children, how will you educate them?" asks Mr. Shwartz.

"No problem," says Sol, "I study Torah and it says G-d will provide."

Mr. Shwartz goes home and Mrs. Shwartz, his wife, anxiously asks what Sol is like.

"Well," says Mr. Shwartz, "he's a lovely boy, I only just met him and he already thinks I'm G-d."
