If frozen yogurt causes people to go crazy, then Kim Kardashian and the Yogen Früz guys should be beating up homeless guys, too.
Before I get started: a brief tangent. I am delighted to report that “Kardashian” still comes up as a misspelled word in my spell-checker. When that particular Rubicon is crossed, it will be an indictment on our society.
Anyway, back to the so-called Pinkberry beat-down. Here’s the headline: “Co-founder of Pinkberry frozen yogurt ‘made homeless man get on knees and apologise for sex tattoo before beating him with tire iron.’”
Say it with me, folks: “Not a Jew.”
By contrast, the founders of mega-frozen yogurt behemoth Yogen Früz (with 1,200 locations in 25 countries) have never beat a homeless guy with a tire iron. In fact they give away hundreds of thousands of dollars to the poor through their charitable foundation.
And, what do you know, they’re Jews.
Look, I’m not saying it couldn’t happen to the Yogen Jews. We all have our bad days. But it would be a mighty high mountain to tumble from if they just woke up one day and said “screw it; we’re done feeding the poor, let’s start beating them with tire irons.”
I’m just saying that we Jews (and me, a Jew-to-be) are generally not known as the “beating homeless guys with tire iron” types.
If there is such a type, you can bet they don’t do their beatdowns at Yogen Früz.
