  4. Rich, No. Kosher Ham could easily be Jackie Mason. Who is Jewish.

    Milton Berle was a ham, also Jewish.

  5. In Yiddish, there’s a phrase:

    Goyishe nachas.

    (Nachas is pronounced with a soft “ch”.  I suspect that it is physically impossible for a non Jew to properly pronounce Yiddish words, so don’t worry too much if you can’t get it right.)

    A rough translation is “That which brings pleasure to a gentile.”

    Yiddish tends to pack a lot of meaning into a very few words and each meaning has overtones that just don’t translate very well.

    Happy Chanuka and Merry Christmas y’all.

  6. “Yes Kosher Ham actually DOES exist.

    You wouldn’t think it should.  It really shouldn’t.  But *all* that
    kosher /really/ means is that a rabbi has said a few blessings over the
    facilities in which the product was produced.  It has nothing to do with
    clean and unclean meats or anything else.

    Pretty dumb, IMO.  I don’t think very many people (Jew or not, observant
    or not) actually use it this way, and most stores that have a “kosher
    section” do strictly obey the /actual/ Biblical rules instead of the
    made-up Pharisaical ones.  But the true meaning of Kosher has nothing to
    do with pork products or anything else.”

  7. Isn’t Kosher Ham something the Israelis put on a bus to send the Mohammedan who blows himself (and the bus) up?
    Why yes! Yes it is!
