Because business is not the only thing they are good at!
We love Gujjus and everything about them! Remember Hansa Ben and Praful from the famous TV show Khichdi or Jethalal from Taarak Mehta ka Ooltah Chashma? These Gujarati characters brought us a lot of rib-tickling laughter. If you are a Gujarati or if you ever had a Gujju friend, then you can surely relate to their love for fafdas, dhoklas, and theplas! There is something unique about Gujju English pronunciation too! it's entertaining and borderline funny! Few expressions/words are just not good enough in any other language but Gujarati. Here are some tope-of-the-line (as a Gujju would say) Gujju jokes that will add some fun to your day. However, please take these jokes in the right spirit, they do not intend to be offensive.

Teacher: Well, that’s a good answer but this is not the answer I am looking for.
American Boy: I think Abraham Lincoln.
Teacher: Well, that’s again a good answer but this is not the one I am looking for.
Gujju boy Jignesh: I think Jesus Christ.
Teacher: Perfect!! (While awarding him the prize money)
I know you are a Hindu, so why did you say, ‘Jesus Christ’?
Jignesh: I know in my heart it’s Krishna, but for
JIGNESS BIJNESS IS BIJNESS.
(For Jignesh, business is business)
P.S.: How much we comment on their love for food or their English pronunciation, let’s face that Gujjus are the coolest people the world knows and are admired around the globe for their culture, cuisine, business ideas, and generosity.
