Entry filtered.

A Jew and a Czech were walking through the woods, and
they ran into two big bears: one male and one female.
Feeling brave, the Czech tried to fight them off, and
the male bear ate him up. The Jew ran back to town
for help. When he returned with the hunters, they asked
him which of the bears ate the Czech. The Jew said it
was the male bear. So they killed the male bear, cut
him open, and the Czech wasn't there.
Moral of the story: Never trust a Jew when he says:
"The check's in the mail!"

Submitter comment:

That is a phrase used frequently by people who owe
someone money.
