Star on Thar

Every time I see this blue gorilla at work I have a brief moment where I worry he's been put into the corner because he's Jewish.  He's in a bit of a time out area and I find it a little creepy.

But he's not Jewish.  At least not in any observable way.  He's the build sheriff.  He sits in your chair when you break the build.  That's much more work appropriate.

I don't know, man. Yellow star? Wearing a little hat?

Back in my childhood there was a Hanna-Barbera animated series called "Magilla Gorilla" -- Magilla being a bastardization of the Yiddish Megillah. Pattern?

Do you think the undersized derby hat was a circumcision joke? Wikipedia tells me it's all about miscegenation. I don't remember thinking about that during any of the episodes I caught.
