Jewish vs. Goyish

The following list is the result of several emails exchanged between Eti and I, inspired by this website which is in itself a hilarious read, as we attempted to compile a definitive account of what is Jewish and what is Goyish.

WINE is goyish... O K

Bernaldo said...

Vin Diesel is Jewish, he tries to avoid admitting it by claiming Italian and mixed-race but look at him if he had a beard he would look more Jewish than the rebbe Menachem Schneerson

Bernaldo said...

i think wine is jewish also and beer is goyish because if you look at the history of wine some of the best french wines were made by french jews

As a french man, I can tell wineyards are owned by rich jews, but wine is made by the hands of pure french catholic farmers! So, wine is goyish... but making a business of it is jewish.
