Try living in Israel and they hear that you are from Texas.
First off they don't believe you are jewish then they think we all live in some desert with oil wells.
Speaking Hebrew with a Texas accent is quite funny apparently.
Everyone gets this strange look on their face then bust out laughing.
My arabic is good though . Shalom

OK, Dbarabians. I'm started up good and proper now.

These bloody Yankees - the NYC ones in particular - think that ALL Jews live, have lived, or want to live, in NYC. It makes me INSANE. If I have told them once, I have told them one thousand times that there are LOADS of Jews in Texas. In fact, Galveston was a HUGE immigration port, and there were a HUGE number of Jews that flowed into the country THERE - NOT just Ellis Island - and the Galveston Jews moved out and became COWBOYS. Not all Jews are Larry David or Seinfeld.

Oh Hun. It isn't just the Mexican food in New England. It's food in general. And lord don't try asking for sweet iced tea. They'll bring hot tea with ice to put in it.

And you'd think seafood is awesome in Maine. Nope.

Not to a southerner. >_<

Thursday, I know Jews that live in Dallas and have never been to NYC that have that accent.
They can't believe that I am in the agriculture business until I tell them that I inherited it. That they can understand.
My father once brought a friend of the family from NY to the farm in the 60's.
As they were driving by the coton fields he asked what was growing out there. My father said mashed potatoes. The man said in NYC we have to mash our own. This man was a doctor. Shalom

Strange coming from a horse person. At my place possums are shot on sight...any reduction in the chance of EPM helps.

Shalom, y'all...
