Shylock in Yiddish

shylockIn memory of our ancestor in Venice who demanded a pound of goyim flesh to cover outstanding interest payments.

Shakespeare came up with Shylock without knowing Madoff, the Lehman brothers or Lord Levy. You know why? Because Shakespeare was writing about himself. He was one of us! And it sounds far better in Yiddish.

United against the goyim
