    Pancho Villa

    Jew Score:



    (Doroteo Arango Arambula)
    June 5, 1878 – July 20, 1923

    If you ever visit El Paso, Texas (if you're Jewish, this premise is quite unlikely), you can stop by Dave's Pawn Shop, and, for the small price of $9,500, buy Pancho Villa's trigger finger.

    That price a tad too much? Well, there's also one for sale in Europe, for a tidy $250. Can't go wrong there.

    Of course, it's quite possible (but don't tell that to the delusional Texan or European who's about to open his wallet to purchase his own decrepit piece of Mexican history), that neither of these fingers was once Pancho Villa's.

    For Villa's death, as was his life, is shrouded in various mysteries. And one of these mysteries deals with Pancho's heritage, including a new theory that (you guessed it!) Villa was Jewish.

    The theory says that Pancho's father was not Agustin Arango, but rather Luis Gurrola, a wealthy landowner of Austurian Jewish origin.

    But that's just a theory... One of many.

    Now, the whereabouts of his skull? No one knows for sure, but we'll happily sell it to you for $500.

    Verdict: Not a Jew.
