אֻלְפַּן עִבְרִית

Bazooka asked his friend: Is it true that your boss is a bad employer?
His friend replied. Yes. He is bad but he doesn’t play favorites. “What do you mean,” asked Bazooka? His friend replied, “He is bad for everyone.”

Bazooka and his friends were talking about Avi (and how important and successful he is). Bazooka said: Avi is the head of 15 people. Another friend said: Avi is a bank manager. The last one said: It’s nothing, everybody looks at Avi from below (everybody is so intimidated) and afraid to look Avi in the eyes that they look at him with their eyes averted. Then they saw Avi cleaning a window and they all ran and exclaimed: Avi is a window cleaner...
