Subject: RE: NON IRRITATING JEWISH JOKES
Cranky Yankee, I will happily concede that your Jewish jokes are better than mine.

Your vampire joke was used (sort of) in the movie, "Fearless Vampire Killers," directed Roman Polanski, in 1967, where the punchline, spoken in a Jackie-Mason-type accent, was "Boy, have you got the wrong vampire!" It makes me wonder if Polanski had heard your version first, and revised it for the benefit of people unfamiliar with Yiddish.

GUEST,Alexi Wrigglemouse: If you want your joke to sound less anti-Semitic, could you at least revise it to say "Israelis" and not "Jews"?
