Jewish Ear Juice

This entry was posted in Culture on by .

My ears are delicious. I have that on good authority because I was told it this very weekend (sorry, TMI?). So when I read an article in ynet about a Chinese product called Jew’s Ear Juice, I thought to myself, “Who has been stealing my ear juice and smuggling it to China?” But it turns out the drink is made from a black mushroom that looks like an ear. And in China, Judaism is seen as a synonym for success. So ear juice from a Jew really means successful mushroom sauce. And that makes perfect sense.
