Scary Diplomatic “Duh”

jews_ear_juice[1] (YNetNews) The Consulate General of Israel in Shanghai recently was surprised to discover on the shelves of a local supermarket chain a canned beverage called "The Jew's Ear Juice."

The drink is made of a black mushroom which does resemble a wrinkled ear.

Israel's Consul-General in Shanghai Jackie Eldan stressed that this was not a case of anti-Semitism, as Judaism is considered in China a synonym of success.

According to Eldan, the juice's manufacturer must have thought that linking it to the Jewish ear would be profitable.

(Mystical Paths noted this stuff almost 6 months ago, here.)

jews-ear-fungus Why do we pay these guys?  A quick google would have shown hundreds of references to Jew’s Ear and several explanations of the name.  Those explanations happen to be exactly the opposite of Israel's Consul-General in Shanghai Jackie Eldan’s answer, they carry an anti-semitic overtone that’s become embedded in a scientific classification.

The Chinese manufacturer was just describing his product.  The Israeli diplomat was just making it up.  And the Israeli news site was just parroting the diplomat.

Sheez.
