Not Chosen, Just Posin’

not chosenNot only is this halacha-wannabe motto the T-Shirt of the Week, it’s the title of my new favorite blog.

The header reads: I just got a job with a Jewish magazine. I’m not Jewish. They think I am.

Having worked for a variety of Jewish and non-Jewish publications, I find this jolly imposter’s descriptions of self-absorbed publishers, self-righteous super Jews, weirdo graphic designers and phony letters to the editor spot on and hilarious. There is much skewering of hypocritical and elitist Jewish attitudes, but there’s too much Jew love for it to be interepreted as anti-Semitic; rather, I suspect deep down this NY shiksa considers herself one of us.

The goy has more chutzpah than than my bubbie after four appletinis, but she (I thought male at first, but the “manwhore” JDate post changed all that) better watch her tuchus so’s not to be found out and fired. The blogosphere combined with Jewish geography is a very public place…

Update: Oops. Not a Jew is not a chick, either. It should have been apparent after this, and upon reviewing a few other posts, it’s obvious that Not a Jew and the “Manwhore” are just friends. Sorry, buddy.

    I’m a male who is very saddened to come off as a female.

    I’m giving you the link of the week (which is a category I just invented after reading your post)…
