And the Pretzel Bakers

Found this wonderful story on Tony Price’s blog:

A Nazi SS trooper accosts an old rabbi, points a gun at his head, and demands, “Tell me, who’s to blame for all the world’s troubles?”

The old rabbi knows the right answer, and trembling he admits, “The Jews.”

The SS man smiles and nods.

“And the pretzel bakers,” adds the rabbi.

“Why the pretzel bakers?” demands the Nazi.

“Why the Jews?”
