1. Interesting. Everything sounds “funny” in Yiddish, and the happiest Jews I’ve met are the Yiddish-speaking ones, though that could be the culture too, which is what I previously thought, I guess that’s one of those “chicken and the egg” questions. It’s also a language well-known for humor (like the Yiddish author Shalom Aleichem) and funny sayings, which sound funny even in English but in Yiddish are even funnier. Food for thought.
