Obama Bought Us A Goat

A man comes to the rabbi and complains about his life:

“I have almost no money, my wife is a shrew, and we live in a small apartment with seven unruly kids. It’s messy, it’s noisy, it’s smelly, and I don’t want to live.”

The rabbi says, “Buy a goat.”

“What? I just told you there’s hardly room for nine people, and it’s messy as it is!”

“Look, you came for advice, so I’m giving you advice. Buy a goat and come back in a month.”

In a month the man comes back and he is even more depressed:

“It’s gotten worse! The filthy goat breaks everything, and it stinks and makes more noise than my wife and seven kids! What should I do?”

The rabbi says, “Sell the goat.”

A few days later the man returns to the rabbi, beaming with happiness:

“Life is wonderful! We enjoy every minute of it now that there’s no goat — only the nine of us. The kids are well-behaved, the wife is agreeable — and we even have some money!”

Let us hope and pray it doesn’t end up being a Judas Goat.
