The Television Set

First Time Buyer

A Chasidic Jew goes into an electronics store in Brooklyn and says, “I’d like to buy that TV.” The clerk tells him, “We don’t sell TV’s to Chasids.” 

The Chasidic guy is so mad, he leaves the store, tucks his peyos inside a baseball cap, changes his clothes and walks back in. Again he tells the clerk, “I’d like to buy that TV” and again the clerk answers “We don’t sell TV’s to Chasids.” 

Now the Chasid is furious. He storms out of the store and comes back two weeks later, without the beard, without the peyos, wearing hipster clothing, and tells the clerk “I’d like to buy that TV.” 

“How many times do I have to tell you, we don’t sell TVs to Hasids!” 

“But how do you know I’m a Hasid?” 

“Because that’s a microwave oven.”
