A 25-year-old Jewish girl tells her mum that she has missed her period for two months.
Very worried, the mother goes to the local pharmacy and buys a pregnancy test kit. The test confirms that her daughter is pregnant.
Shouting and crying, the mother says, “Who was the selfish bastard that did this to you? I demand to know!”
Without answering, the girl picks up the phone and makes a call.
Half an hour later, a Bentley stops in front of their house. A middle-aged and very distinguished man steps out of the car and enters the house.
He sits in the lounge with the father and mother, and tells them,
“Your daughter has informed me of the problem. I can’t marry her because of my personal family situation but I’ll take charge. I will pay all costs and provide for your daughter for the rest of her life.”
He continues, “Additionally, if a girl is born I will bequeath two retail furniture stores, a deli, a chateau in France and a £1m bank account.”
He continues, “If a boy is born my legacy will be a chain of jewellery stores and a £25m bank account.”
“However, if there is a miscarriage I’m not sure what to do. What would you suggest?”
All silent at this point, the mother placed a hand firmly on the man’s shoulder and told him, “You’ll try again.”
