Um, yeah

Because we know it is IMPOSSIBLE...

Butch Cassidy in Carnegie Hall [Jay Nordlinger]

I used to see Paul Newman from time to time in New York concert halls. I remember the first time, very well. There was this old man — old, short Jewish man — who was shockingly good-looking. I stared at him, because the sight was so unusual. And only after I stared at him for a bit did I realize it was Paul Newman.

Because, apparently we all know what older Jewish men are supposed to look like.

Pardon me, my midwesternism, but how the hell do you tell someone is Jewish if they are not in ultra-orthodox garb anyhow? Is there something called "goydar"?
