Go on, boycott !

In these days of International calls for boycotts of Israel, I  think the following is particularly relevant:  The wonderful comic,  Sam Levinson, had a great answer to   anti-Semites:  "It's a free world and you don't have to like Jews, but if  you  DON'T, I suggest that you boycott certain Jewish products,   like

   The Wasserman Test for syphilis, Digitalis, discovered  by   Doctor Nuslin;

   Insulin, discovered by Doctor Minofsky;

  Chloral Hydrate, discovered by Doctor Lifreich;

  The Schick Test for Diphtheria;

  Vitamins, discovered by Doctor Funk;

  Streptomycin, discovered by Doctor Woronan;

  The Polio Pill by Doctor Sabin;

  The Polio Vaccine by Doctor Jonas Salk.

Go on, boycott !
          Humanitarian consistency requires that my people offer all  these  gifts to all people of the world.

Fanatic consistency requires  that all bigots accept Syphilis, Diabetes, Convulsions, Malnutrition, Infantile Paralysis and Tuberculosis as a   matter of  principal. 

You want to be mad at us? Go on! Be mad at us! But I'm   telling  you, you ain't going to feel so good!"
              Pass it on - let the world know what they'll be missing!
