    Peter and Alfred Nussbaum were tailors and partners in the firm
    Nussbaum Brothers. After many years they decided to Anglicize
    their names and henceforth the firm should be known as the
    Nuss Brothers.

    After completing the legal paperwork, they informed the
    receptionist, Ethel, that from Monday on she should answer the
    phone as "Nuss Brothers."

    "I quit," said Ethel.

    "But why?", asked Peter, "the pay and benefits will be the
    same!"

    "Yeah? Well, YOU answer the phone then. I don't want to answer
    and find that the caller says he wants to speak with Mr. Nuss.
    Then I have to say..... "Yes Sir; which one? P-Nuss or A-Nuss?"
