Scott Walker, it seems, once covered himself in goyish glory with this ADORABLE note to one of his Jewish constituents:
Well, it was nice of him to try; he’s a real munch. We only hope this won’t sour relations with the acidic community, or make things uncomfortable next time he speaks to the Anti-Defecation League. If it does get accused of being anti-semantic, there are other drinks besides that troublesome Molotov cocktail that he could offer. “Have a tequila!” he could sing out. I’ve even heard Hebews his own beer, which he could pass around while wishing everyone a happy harmonica.

That’s what the Jewish Daily Forward can say to Pope Francis, because they just named him one of the 50 most influential Jews in the United States. (Apparently they traditionally choose two non-Jewish candidates who show “respect and an understanding of Jewish culture”).
Of course, they could just as easily have chosen Benedict XVI

you wouldn’t need this:
Found in my local grocery store circular. Oh, New Hampshire.
