Purveyor of Bollocks to the Crowned Heads of Europe
The very last time I took the Dover/Calais ferry, there was an Hasidic Jewish family aboard. Boy did that guy strut about! I think that's him, second from left.I happen to like extreme clothing. I've always wanted to own a zoot suit.
I like orthodox Jewish outfits too, but I don't care for the fur hats much. I like the plain, black coats with white, buttoned shirts as worn by European Orthodox Jews. I don't go for the girlish ringlets either, but I suppose they're not a fashion statement, so I cannot criticize. It's nice to see this group having fun and letting their hair down too, but there is a distinct absence of women in the picture. Strange when you consider how powerful women are in traditional Jewish households - I am told by the Jewish girlfriends I have had.I used to have a Yemeni Jewish, Israeli girlfriend - a fiery mix of Arab and Jew. Before my East-End Jewish ancestry came to light (on my grandmother's side) I persuaded her parents to refer to me as her 'Goy-Boy'. She ended up breaking 3 of my ribs, but that's another story.
A Jew is someone who's MOTHER is Jewish. Entirely matriarchal.
Phew! Thank God for that. Now I can go back to my old, Arian racism.
I love the hats. I like to call my favorite fur hat my Zhivago hat. Maybe I should call it my Fiddler on the Roof?
If I was a rich man.......
