Look at the size of that Jew!



I thought Bugsy Siegel and Barney Ross and Kevin Youkilis were tough Jews. Short of Samson, I didn’t know yids came as big as Scot Mendelson.

I discovered Mendelson while eating lunch yesterday when a friend who I often workout with—I’m huge—pointed to an ad in the Jinky’s menu for F.I.T.; accompanying it was a photo of the massive Mendelson, who owns the gym and the world record for bench press.

“That guy’s got to be Jewish,” I said to my buddy, though I remained a bit incredulous because of the powerlifter’s sheer size.

In fact, Mendelson is the real Jewish hulk. The proof could be found in this three-year-old Jewish Journal article, excerpted after the jump:
