Subject: RE: NON IRRITATING JEWISH JOKES
I, too, was enjoying the beginnings of this thread, at least some of them, but became uncomfortable when the stereotypes were drug out. It's the same as my son-in-law and his friends calling each other n*****, without taking offense, where it would be totally inappropriate for me or anyone not of their colour to do the same.

Jody, I am sorry, but I think your response was probably a little over the top. Surely there was a less offensive phrase you could have used to let on you knew what he'd called you?

This has nothing to do with the dreaded PC, it's just good manners.
