    Milton Berle

    Jew Score:



    (Mendel Berlinger)
    July 12, 1908 – March 27, 2002

    There are all kinds of stereotypes about Jews. Some we actually don't mind (smart, funny), others not so much (greedy, momma's boys).

    Our least favorite? Probably the one about the Jewish male's... ummm, how do we put this delicately... size.

    To you ladies out there, we're sure this sounds ridiculous. There's countries full of people who believe that Jews are the source of all evil in the world. Who blame us for everything from the death of their God to the current economic crisis. And our big concern is that people think we might have a small penis?

    What can we say? The male ego is a simple creature and it doesn't take much to — ahem — stroke it.

    And that's why we love Milton Berle. Not because he was a pioneer in film, radio and television. Or that there was a time when he was considered one of the funniest men alive. Those are all nice things and not to be overlooked. But mostly we're thankful for his reputation for having a really large...

    Well, you get the idea. Nothing, not even a later years fondness for Christian Science, is going to keep us from paying tribute to that.

    Verdict: Borderline Jew.
