I didn't think much of it when, a few days ago, I started receiving more Jewishy e-mails than usual in my Myspace account. But when a friendly Myspace member contacted me with a rabbinical question, explaining that she figured I'd know the answer because I came up first in a Myspace Search for "Jewish", I checked for myself. Sure enough, she was telling the truth.
So as of April 20, 2006, I am currently the most Jewish thing on Myspace! That's cool, considering Myspace has over 72.5 million registered accounts. And with Jews representing 0.3% of the world population, the Myspace Jewish community is probably around 217,500. I have no idea how I ended up with this prestigious ranking. It could have something to do with the fact that my member name contains the word "Jewish". And I suppose I look Jewish. Nonetheless, I am honored that JewishRobot is the #1 Jewish Myspace profile.
Gosh, there are so many people I need to thank! First, thanks, Mom and Dad (Jews), for having me circumcised and making sure I attended Hebrew school! Couldn't have done it without you. And my sisters (Jews) and niece, Lola (a Jew), who have supported me through all this. I'd also like to thank my accountant, Allan Shapiro (a Jew), and my landlord, Sheldon Gold (a Jew). Thank you, G-d ... and thank you, Jesus (a Jew)! I may be #1 now, but you're still the original King of the Jews.
And, of course, thank you, Tom (not a Jew).
