He Said "Did-You"- "Jew"

A Jewish couple out to dinner at a Jersey Shore restaurant last weekend was furious when they received the check, and it had the two of them listed as "Jew Couple." The restaurant apologized, but claimed that the designation was not meant with malice, and that it merely was indicated as a distinguishing characteristic.

As a now semi-regular visitor to the Jersey Shore, and one-half of a Jew Couple myself, I'm not buying it.

word - as the Jew half of a half-Jew couple myself, if you try to define a couple in a restaurant at the shore simply as "Jew couple," that's at least half the restaurant. i'm not buying it either.
