Moishe the Carpenter, returning home with his week’s wages, was accosted by an armed robber on a deserted street.

“Take my money,” said Moishe, “but do me a favor: shoot a bullet through my hat otherwise my wife won’t believe I was robbed.”

The robber obliged. He threw Moishe’s hat into the air and put a bullet through it.

“Let’s make it look as if I ran into a gang of robbers,” said Moishe, “otherwise my wife will call me a coward! Please shoot a number of holes through my coat.”

So the robber shot a number of holes through the carpenter’s coat.

“And now…”

“Sorry,” interrupted the robber.

“No more holes. I’m out of bullets.”

“That’s all I wanted to know!”​ Said Moishe, “Now hand me back my money and some more for the hat and​d the coat that you’ve ruined or I’ll beat you black and blue!”

The robber threw down the money and​ ran.
