Kuentos del Bel Para Abasho, in other words, “Adult Jokes” forms a huge part of Spanish Jews’ spoken culture. In these jokes, it is possible to find the different tastes and variety of the Ladino language and the Jews speaking it. The jokes filled with wits relishes the ones listening and reading them, making them proceed into joyous moments. Although people doesn’t want to admit, the ones making them laught the most are the ones full of wits. It’s the symbol of spoken culture that brings us the ‘living language’.
