It is a truth nearly universally acknowledged that Jewish men make the best husbands. Why? That's something I pondered in a blog post that continues to draw the most visit over three years after it was posted. It's not merely an affirmation for Jewish women to marry Jewish men. It is a more complex consideration than individual traits associated with the religion. Some view it as a step up on the socio-economic ladder with designated rungs for particular ethnic groups.
But this is really a post on the lighter side. I was looking for an illustration of the concept of Jewish calendars for another post --http://www.examiner.com/article/jewish-time --when I came across ads for the Nice Jewish Guys 2013 Calendar (now at a discounted price). Here's part of the description:
who needs a hot shirtless man when you could have a sweet Jewish guy? The Nice Jewish Guys 2013 Calendar is filled with quality men (and, even a few puppies) who would be suitable for bring home to your bubbe. She’ll make her famous kugle for him, and you’ll all live happily ever after. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves…aren’t we?
Women not only buy this calendar but even post their pictures next to their purchases on the Facebook page, NICE-JEWISH-GUYS/ In fact, that page identifies 5 of my own FB friends who like it. (You do know that you should regard everything on FB as absolutely public, right?) As far as I know they're all married, but maybe they have a daughter, niece, sister-in-law, cousin. Some of the women who post there declare they received the calendar as a (gag) gift.
