Mrs Oppenheimer decided to get away from the often inclement weather of
New York and spend Christmas in the deep South of the USA. Being
unfamiliar with that part of the world she wandered into a 'restricted'
hotel and said 'Hi. I'm Mrs Oppenheimer and I'd like a room for the next
week.' 'I'm very sorry,' said the manager, but all our rooms are taken.
Just as he said that a customer came to the desk and unexpectedly
checked out. 'How lucky' responded Mrs Oppenheimer, 'Now you have a room
for me.' 'Look, I'm very sorry' said the manager, but this is a
restricted hotel. Jews are not allowed here. 'Jewish! Whaddya mean
Jewish. I happen to be a Catholic.' 'That takes some believing' said the
manager. Tell me, who was the Son of God?' 'Jesus.' she replied 'Where
was he born?' 'In a stable in Bethleham..... simply because some Schmuck
like you wouldn't rent a room to a Jew.'
