How Did Inspector Clouseau Get In This Joke

My mother told me this joke about a priest, a rabbi and a Buddhist monk that all walked into a bar where the bartender is a former KGB agent.  Inspector Clouseau just happened to be sitting there and he noticed a small Capuchin monkey sitting at the other end of the bar, so he asked, “Whose mehnkey is that?”  To which the bartender replied, “Mehnkey, what’s a mehnkey?”  I told my mom that even though I thought her joke was charming, that I was lost in the wilderness as I did not get it, which made her face turn pink.

My mom said that she had a better one about a blonde woman who was driving crazy all over the roads in her little red sports car, because she was using her cell phone.  Eventually she was pulled over by a woman police officer, who was also a blonde.  The blonde cop asked to see the blonde driver’s license.  She dug through her purse and was getting progressively more agitated and asked, “What does it look like?”  The policewoman replied, “It’s square and it has your picture on it.”  The driver finally found a square mirror in her purse, looked at it and handed it to the policewoman.  “Here it is,” she said.  The blonde officer looked at the mirror, then handed it back saying, “OK, you can go.  I didn’t realize that you were a cop.”

I told my mom that being on a cell phone while driving is very dangerous and it is often the factor which causes many accidents and then I asked her if there was any more birch beer left in the refrigerator.  My mom said that she was not sure and it was not her job to keep track of everything that is in there and sometimes the refrigerator is like the Bermuda triangle, because of the way that things mysteriously disappear in there.
