    About the Jew Score

    Sigmund Freud

    Jew Score:



    May 6, 1856 – September 23, 1939

    Cocaine addict. Sexual deviant. Killed himself.

    Ladies and Gentleman, your father of modern psychology!

    When you look at it that way, you have to wonder why he has such a high rating. Well, Freud was a Jew by birth and you don't exactly need a smart-ass website to tell you that's the case, so that covers the first two scores.

    As for the kvell, well, Freud's rep seems to go up and down by the week. Sometimes he's a mensch. Other times a schlemiel. We scored him on one of his good weeks, apparently.

    Anyway, anyone this important is bound to be polarizing. Freud getting dinged for his idiosyncrasies, misogyny, and drug habits just puts him in the same club as anyone else that's ever been considered important.

    What can't be argued is his effect on the modern world, which is so large it's probably unquantifiable. Psychotherapy, the unconscious, repressed memories, the importance of dreams? Freud, Freud, Freud, Freud.

    So, yeah, we're happy to have the little perv, if anything just to give everyone else a little circumcised penis envy.

    Verdict: Jew.
