A matchmaker cornered a yeshiva student and told him, “Do I have a girl for you!”

“Not interested,” replied the student.

“But she’s beautiful!” exclaimed the matchmaker.

“Yeah?” says the student. 

“Yes. And she’s very rich too,”


“And she has great ancestry. From a very fine family.”

“Sounds great,” the student admitted. “But why would a girl like that want to marry me? She’d have to be crazy.”

The matchmaker said, “Well, you can’t have everything!”
