What would Alvy Singer think? ianqui emailed us about a jury summons notice that came in the mail. Only it was directed to someone who lived in "Jew York"! Clearly the Post Office relies on zip codes, as the summons did get to ianqui. Which makes us wonder how many Manhattan residents were told that they suddenly lived in Jew York - or when the County Clerk's office realized the typo. At any rate, ianqui was a good Jew Yorker, as she reported to jury duty yesterday.

And for kicks, here's that part of Annie Hall:

Alvy, you're a total paranoid.

Wh- How am I a paran-? Well, I pick up on those kind o' things. You know, I was having lunch with some guys from NBC, so I said ... uh, "Did you eat yet or what?" and Tom Christie said, "No, didchoo?" Not, did you, didchoo eat? Jew? No, not did you eat, but Jew eat? Jew. You get it? Jew eat?

You can read the whole script here. For more information about being a NY Juror, go to NYJuror.gov and we loved the NY Times article about County Clerk Norman Goodman and the ways people get out of jury duty.
