    Call me a cheapskate any time you want I don't mind, a totally true story,
    I was in New York a few weeks ago and a couple of Jewish guys, Black hats, long beards black coats etc - oh and a camper van with the slogan 'for a more Jewish tomorrow' (that's how I was sure they were Jewish) came up to me and said " excuse me sir, might you be Jewish by any chance". I explained that I was from Yorkshire which was similar but without the reputation for generosity.
