Co-work­er #1: Does the ad­min­is­tra­tor know that her hair looks like that? She looks like a men­tal pa­tient!

Co-work­er #1: Every­one is laugh­ing at her. Should we tell her?

Cowork­er #1: So I heard Sil­ver­man, Bern­stein and Shaprio are com­ing in here to­mor­row for a meet­ing. Are you go­ing to be in on that meet­ing?
Cowork­er #2: No, I don’t think so. Why?
Cowork­er #1: Well, they are your peo­ple, aren’t they? You could just wear your lit­tle hat and that would seal the deal. No?
Cowork­er #2: My peo­ple? Huh?
Cowork­er #1: Yeah, your peo­ple. Y’­know, they are… crap! What are they? They are Jews, but not. What’s that word you Jews use to de­scribe your­selves?
Cowork­er #2: Jew­ish?
Cowork­er #1: No, that’s not it. Goy! That’s it!
Cowork­er #2: Umm… that refers to some­one who’s not Jew­ish.
Cowork­er #1: Oh. So you Jews don’t have a deroga­to­ry slang word you use to re­fer to your­selves? (pause) Damn!
