Quote of the Day

Made my day:
I can tell you're not from New York. ~ said to me after a brief meeting.
(I replied with a Thank You, of course.)

Related: SD's top ten ways to spot a tourist, which are mostly the classics, but a couple really good new ones.


  1. You seem like a New Yorker to me.
    Just sayin'

  2. SD - My pleasure. :)

    Moshe - LIAR. I originally had Moshe as a tag on the post. :)

  3. Technical question:

    If a Jew says that to another Jew, how is it not lashon hara? After all, denigration of a large group of Jews is one type of lashon hara even if not demonstrably false. No apparent toeles here either.

  4. How is it loshon hara? There's no denigration of anybody; merely that I personally take such a badge as a compliment.
