    I don’t think I had ever seen that one. It made me laugh hard. On second thought…Doug, are you Jewish? Because if you are not I find this very anti-Semitic. Or maybe anti-diabetic. I don’t know, I get confused sometimes with identity grievance. Just stay away from Polish jokes or I will be on your ass…unless you are Polish, broski.

      I think it is just funny and not anti anyone but people will surely complain. The world was different when this came out.
