    What? I should be all of that because I know you're from Broyklin? God forbid I should deny it if it were true. It's not, but I have met 2 Americans who fit that description. Both Sweden and Canada, as a matter of fact. I actually know a lot more than that and maybe some day I'll tell you about it.

    Now back to WW II and President Rosenfeldt ........

    Didn't mean to give offense. Your superb knowledge of colloquial American English, even your colloquial use of Yiddish-style American English surprised me, is all. ("Like I should think everybody from Brooklyn would forget already?")

    Maybe you're just a big fan of Barbra Streisand. Or Jerry Lewis (from Joisey).

    Sorry for the interruption, back to the show.

    No offense at all. I have a good American friend here in town. She's from Brooklyn (West Indian born) and we share a fondness for the stereo-typic, New Yawk Yiddisch character. We sometimes carry on whole conversations in pseudo-Yiddisch. Entertaining one another is our mitzvot.

    I dislike Streisand and J. Lewis but I love the majority of "Jewish" comedy. Who doesn't? I sometimes think if I weren't such a pompous ass I would have made an excellent George Castanza.

    "Entertaining one another is our mitzvot."
    Mitzvot means the commandments from G-d. Is that the word you mean? Maybe you mean 'komish'--which means funny, silly, etc.

    George Costanza was Italian, not Jewish. Funny, I'd make a good Female Costanza. Not his mother.

    Sorry dear, but mitzvah is a term also meaning "deed" - or a responsibility.

    "George Costanza" is a fictional character supposing to be ethnic Spanish. However, his character is as Jewish as you can get, and ................ the actor is Jewish. It's not obvious?

    If I were to meet his mother you'd have to have an ambulance ready outside to take me to the loony bin.
