On one level it's funny, but the stereotyping bothers me. Many many years ago I was dating a young lady of the Jewish persuasion, who told me something I thought pretty profound:

You can only tell jokes about people who would laugh at themselves if they heard it.

She believed that as a people the Jews had developed the ability to laugh at themselves and what others consider their foibles because those foibles, eccentricities, traits, call them what you will, are not in and of themselves harmful to others.

Killing, stealing, and indiscriminate spreading of one's sperm throughout the community are not foibles to be laughed at, in my opinion.

I once made a joke on this forum.... I said that "Israeli Settlers were illegal immigrants with submachine guns"

Most people did not find it very funny,
Apparently even the renowned jewish sense of humor does have it's limits. Go figure. Hmm
