Someone with good intentions forwarded to me one of those “Look Who’s Jewish!” pep-talks to alert the world that our kind makes up an absurdly high percentage of Nobel prizewinners and movie producers, just in case any of us out there are feeling down about crap jobs/bank account blues/relationship woes. It’s published “as is” below for those of you with the curiosity and time to read it.
Frankly, these lists make me nervous; Isn’t that what the hate site cretins do? This one is longer than usual and full of questionable “facts” that almost sound like propaganda, essentially proving that Jews do control the world. (Please comment on what you know to be true or not; I haven’t the time to check out all of them.)
Anyway, I don’t want to hear about any more Jews making millions of dollars or curing diseases or directing humankind it’s just too much pressure. All those successful Jews! How’s that supposed to make us mediocre Jews barely scraping by supposed to feel? It’s not enough we’re supposed to find compatible Jewish mates, pay through the tonsils to give our kids a Jewish education (not to mention continue our own) and keep at least eight of the Ten Commandments at any given time, but we’ve got to do something fantastic and spectacular in our careers besides? Man, it sucks being Chosen sometimes.
If there actually was an International Jewish Conspiracy (funny site, check it out), I damn sure wouldn’t be sitting here under a leaky roof in holey socks.
