Rivkah Reiser is doing her Shabbos shopping and she goes into Yitz’s butcher shop that has a sign in the window saying, "Sale! Rib Roast Five Dollars/ Pound!"

Rivkah thinks that she’s found herself a real metziyah (a find) so she asks the butcher for ten pounds worth. But he shakes his head and says, "Sorry. I'm all out."

Disappointed, Rivkah goes down the street to Shloime the Butcher and asks, "How much is your Rib Roast?"

Shloimie replies, "It's $15 per pound."

"Fifteen!?!" Rivkah exclaims. "Just up the street, Yitz sells it for five dollars!"

Shloimie the butcher smiles calmly and asks, "Does he have any?"

"No. He's out of it right now."

"Well," says Shloimie, "When I don't have any, I can also sell it for five dollars per pound!"
