Sam Levenson was a well know humorist and teacher who decided that his first LP would not be humorous, and instead would include anecdotes which included, I suppose, many things that he wanted to get off his chest for some time. But, a second album did not follow.
There are a few 78 RPM recordings from the 1940s, flavored with Jewish humor, that will be posted in the months ahead. 
Some quotes from Sam:

  • The first screw to get loose in your head is the one that holds your tongue in place.
  • You're only young once. After that it takes some other excuse for behaving like an idiot.
  • Even if the majority agrees on an idiotic idea, it is still an idiotic idea.
  • There are more important things in life than money. The trouble is they all cost money.
  • On sex education in schools: Let them teach it! If the schools teach sex the way they teach everything else, the kids will lose interest anyhow.
  • You must learn from the mistakes of others. You can't possibly live long enough to make them all yourself.
  • I admit that my wife is outspoken, but by whom?
  • Lead us not into temptation. Just tell us where it is; we'll find it.
