Pat Robertson Says Jews Don’t Mow Lawns

Pat Robertson has succeeded where thousands of years of Elders of Zion-style conspiracy theorists have failed.

He’s figured out why Jews are all so darn successful.

It’s simple, the televangelist explained in a recent discussion with Rabbi Daniel Lapin, head of the American Alliance of Jews and Christians — Jews don’t tinker with their cars or mow their own lawns, which leaves them with all the time in the world to pursue their true passion: Polishing diamonds.

Whew. Glad we cleared that up. Now back to counting my gold dubloons.
