"You know what I'm gonna tell those Jews when I get to Israel, don't you Herman?" a then Governor George W. Bush allegedly asked a reporter for the Austin American-Statesman.
When the journalist, Ken Herman, replied that he did not know, Bush reportedly delivered the punch line: "I'm telling 'em they're all going to hell."
Of course, I'm a Canadian Jew and not Israeli so maybe he didn't mean me. In any case, I'd always assumed it would be because I'm gay. But thanks for the birthday greetings, eh!
