Mister Ed Jewish Zebra

Comment: I was sent this today - it purports to be a Jewish zebra- with a Chanukah menorah on its side. Look totally dubious to this professional photographer. Cute, but seems an obvious photoshop job. Any traces of this manipulation?

Most likely. But the same was said about Heart-Kun.

Couldn't someone just check to see if the zebra was circumcised?

It can't be a Jewbra, it doesn't have cloven hooves

Mind you, there 'are' some interesting varaints roaming the plains these days...

Umm, neither do I, and I'm Jewish. You're confusing "Jewish" with "kosher."

It's not a jewbra; it's a zebrew.

Orthodox, conservative, or reform? (Can you tell by the width of the stripes? A mountain zebra *might* eat a ham sandwich, but a Grevy's: never!)

7 would be a traditional, non-Hanukkah menorah, also.
