Not Always been easy being Jewish
Jake and Rebecca were traveling cross-country in the bad old days of the
American Bible Belt, when it was difficult for Jews to get accomodations at decent hotels.
Finally, Jake said, "Listen, with our accents, we could never fake being Gentile. This one we're coming to is a fancy one with a swimming pool and it charges an arm and a leg. I know we won't be welcome, but I intend to try to get a room without saying anything. Maybe I'll get away with it. The main thing is for you not to say anything, because your accent is ten times worse than mine."
Jake managed. He pointed regally at the rate schedule, nodded decisively at the room offered, signed a false name, and all without saying a word.
He was jubilant, but Rebecca had studied the swimming pool on the way in and she wanted a dip. "It is so hot," she said, "and I would enjoy a little swim."
"No," said Jake, "there are women all around and you'll strike up a conversation, and in ten seconds they'll know we're Jewish and go out of their way to embarrass us."
"Jake," said Rebecca, "I promise not to say a word; not one word."
Reluctantly, Jake agreed, whereupon Rebecca whipped into her bathing suit and bathing cap, ran daintily out to the pool, smiled at all the others there (but said not a word), and jumped in.
The water, unfortunately, was considerably colder than Becky had expected, and completely involuntarily, she yelled out, "Oy, gevalt!"
Coming up for air, she smiled sweetly at the thoroughly astonished women who rimmed the pool and added, "Votevver dot minnz."
