So howsabout the Seven Dwarfs?
Grumpy: a little man with a big nose, a beard, and a lousy attitude? If that's not a Jew, we don't know who is (and since we've written over 600 of these darned things, we clearly do).
Sleepy: see above.
Doc: what good Jewish mama doesn't want her little boy to be a doctor? We don't know what Doc is a doctor of, but we're betting on a D.D.S.
Bashful: Bashful represents the quiet, nerdy Jew. The smart one terrified of talking to girls. It's cool though, he goes off to college, makes a bunch of money, and ends up marrying some gorgeous shiksa.
Sneezy: He's having some sort of tsuris. Clearly feeling a little verklempt. Maybe a bit of a shmoigel in his pertageleh? Regardless, a bowl of Malka's chicken soup should clear that right up.
Happy: Happy is a conundrum. He's got the beard and the schnoz, but the personality? How many happy Jews are there out there? Seriously, even our comedians are oppressed and miserable. Here's our guess: he's a convert.
And then there's Dopey. Listen, say whatever nasty epithet you've heard about Jews — scheming, conniving, cheating — dopey just isn't one of the words that comes up. Plus, he doesn't even have a beard! No, there's only one possibility: Dopey is the token goy. What's he doing hanging out with all the Hebrews? Who knows? But whatever the reason, you know there's always gotta be one.
