Walla Walla, Washington’s Whitman Wonks Muse on Mixed Model Minority Marriages
It seems that Jewdar is not the only one who has spent time wondering what life is like at the home of Maury Povich and Connie Chung. Apparently Walla Walla’s Whitman College is conducting the world’s first ever study of Jewish/Asian intermarried couples. We are always fairly dubious about such things, but think some real good can come from this, as long as they ask the right questions. We offer the following suggestions:
Who is smarter?
Why the Asian fetish trumps the shiksa fetish?
Why did Asian nerds replace Jewish nerds on TV and film (yes, faithful readers, that is another Jewdar rant about the execrable and antisemitic Head of the Class)?
Shofars vs. Giant Dragons – whose New Year is better?
Yo Yo Ma vs. Steven Seagal?
We’re bigger down there, right?
When will people finally realize that jokes about Jews liking Chinese food haven’t been funny since 1963?
And perhaps we will finally have an answer to the ultimate question – we get why Jewish men like Asian women (especially the really stereotypical ones who talk like the hookers in Full Metal Jacket), but honestly, what can they possibly see in us?
