Abstract

This paper examines anti-Semitic humor, which, like most bigoted humor, is not very witty and often relies on ridiculous stereotypes. This is not unexpected from people whose family tree does not fork. Those who tell bigoted jokes should, at the very least, attempt to ensure that their humor is funny and contains a kernel of truth. A primer, containing four simple steps, is offered for bigots who clearly are not intelligent enough to tell a good joke without assistance. Hopefully, they will benefit from this paper and the world will be spared from any more of this pathetic so-called humor.

Keywords: humor, jokes, toxic humor, ethnic jokes, bigoted humor, sexist humor, anti-Semitic humor, stereotypes
