Expenses

Please upgrade your Flash Player.

A shnorrer is used to receiving a set donation from a certain man every week. One day, when he comes for the money, the man tells him that he can't give him anything: "I've had terrible expenses recently. My wife became very sick, and I had to send her to a health resort in Carlsbad. It's very cold there, so I had to buy her new clothes, and a fur coat."

"What!" the beggar yells. "With my money?"
