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.
