Why are all my jokes so borderline xenophobic?

What is the incendiary weapon of choice for Jewish people when they fancy a bit of a riot?

The mozzel toff cocktail

Its Mazel Toff!
Your misspelling makes you an anti-semite too. And all your jokes are borderline xenophobic because you are an anti-semetic borderline xenophobic.

Simple.

I did wonder about that spelling. I googled it and everything, but apparently everyone else misspells it anyway. Still, at least I know how to spell 'semitic' :p

I am anti-semitic. In my bedroom I have loads of upside-down Marlboro boxes. Scandal!

Yes! Well remembered.

By the way, I now reject your correction. According to Wikipedia (so it must be true!), Yiddish does not use the Latin alphabet that we know and love, but instead relies on traditional Hebrew orthography, so any spelling that we can come up with on a Western keyboard is just a transliteration meant to reflect the pronunciation, rather than anything more definitive.. and it's always sounded like 'mozzel toff' to me! So there. Ha! I am a smartarse. :D

Yeah, but I spoek to a Jewish bloke at work. Because I'm not anti-semetic like you.

Yeah, but I am, so I don't trust his informed opinion. I can't believe a Jewish person would know more about Yiddish than me and Wikipedia.
