It’s a little-known fact, but Mickey Mouse and his friends are Jewish. Walt Disney probably would have been appalled.

Don’t believe me? I’m not surprised. I said it was a little-known fact, didn’t I?

I know this because I have discovered records, records that have been kept safely tucked away since before the second World War. Records that show the Hebrew names of several popular Disney characters.

There’s Mickey ben Maus.

Donald ben Duck. It used to be Donald ben Kotchka, but he changed it.

And, of course, Goofy. Goofy ben Kalba.

(In English, that’s Goofy, Son of a Bitch.)
