Shabbat Shmooze ~ ohh gawd please don't call me a 'Jewpie' (Jew groupie)

I certainly hope nobody sees the eppylover this way.
Because I certainly do not see Eppy and his folks this way.
Besides. I'm by no means hot,
and I try my damndest never to be WASPy
nor a ...(ugh)... chick.
This is a funny article anyway.
