Jews: as if we needed something else to joke about

So apparently an estimated 3.5 million (40 percent of the total Ashkenazi Jews in the world) are all descended from just four women, according to new mitochondrial DNA evidence.

I'm counting on some of my Jewish readers to leave me with a good joke here. I'm too tired to give it what it deserves.

How about:
"And yet those four women say they hardly ever hear from their children"?

that is precisely the kind of joke I was looking for :0)

Great. Now which one of the four is supposed to be making me feel guilty?

Apparently this came out 1 year ago... CNN needs to get with the times.
