Friend: Are you Italian?
Friend: Where's your family from?
Friend: [raises fist] Paisan!
And then they high fived. Which all bummed me out. Because as a Jew, you never get to have an exchange like that. With us, it's more like this:
Jew 1: Are you Jewish?
Jew 2: Yeah.
Jew 1: Where's your family from?
Jew 2: Poland.
Jew 1: Oh. Um. Never forget.
Jews! "Never forget" is like our Jingle Bells.
