Roughly five years ago my parents hosted a Kentucky derby party for friends and neighbors to attend. I can't recall the exact year, but I do recall a horse named I'll have another was in the race. The name stuck with me because i had much to drink on this derby day. It was a lovely spring afternoon. Upon arriving at my parents home I ventured out to the back deck to grab a brew with my father. He was with several friends and neighbors, some of which played on his tennis team. One of them is a short, pudgy balding man named Vic. The man moved surprisingly well on the tennis court for a man at his weight. No doubt taking his opponents by surprised at the volleys he was able to win. As I mentioned Vic is a short man, Think a Jewish version of George Costanza. Anyway old Vic had a habit of telling Jew jokes frequently. Most of them were lame, but he's one of those guys that laughs hysterically at his own lame jokes. After Vic has a robust laugh at what seemed like dozens of lame jew jokes, my father interjected. ''Ya know something Vic, I've had it with your jew jokes. My grandfather died at Auschwitz and i'm getting fed up with it'' he told Vic. ''Oh my god, I had no idea. I'm so sorry please forgive me'' Vic would go on to say. You could tell from the look on Vic's face he felt beyond remorseful, even embarrassed. ''I had no idea you were even Jewish'' Vic adds a moment later. '' ''I'm not Jewish'' My father replied . A serious look on his face throughout the ordeal. ''But wait a second, You just said your grandfather died at Auschwitz'' Vic said with a somber tone. '' That's right. Ya know Vic it's the damnedest thing. He was minding his own business and slipped. Fell right off a perfectly stable guard tower '' My father says, keeping the straight face the entire time. The entire back deck erupts in laughter. ''You son of a....'' A clearly irritated Vic would go on to say. The rest of us laughing our asses off. I've seen Vic a few times since at derby parties, but that moment but an end to the jew jokes from the short,pudgy bald man.
