It's a wizard thing to be a Jew

when you enter the world of a computer game, you can choose what kind of character you want to play, such as wizard, warrior or thief.

But how would you react when the offered options include adventurer, rogue and "Jew"?

Normally, anti-defamationists would be up in arms but this is the new computer game of South Park, the scurrilous TV satirical cartoon.

South Park's co-writer Matt Stone is Jewish, as of course is one of the show's heroes, Kyle.
