This isn't anti-Semitic, dammit. It's funny!! Wodka vodka's holiday themed Manhattan billboard was just misunderstood, you see. Stupid liberals with their damn politically correct puppies!! Real dogs wear hats.

Less than 24 hours later, the ad was removed. The ad's creator, however, was quick to defend his masterwork.

Brian Gordon, who runs MMG, the company that designed the campaign, denied that it was intended to be shock advertising.

"We thought people would perceive it as 'ha ha quirky,' " said Mr. Gordon, who was quick to point out that he is Jewish. "But people perceived it as offensive, and because of that, we pulled it."

See?!? It's not that it was offensive, it was become some idiots thought it was offensive - but it wasn't because he's Jewish!

Oy.

Look, I'm Jewish. Sometimes you just have to have a sense of humor. You can't go looking for offense everywhere you look. Personally, I love the dog with the yarmulke. He looks like people I know!!!! I agree - oy!!!!

Oh, that really is funny. Too bad it was removed. I wonder if my very Jewish Uncle who lives in NYC saw it before it was taken down - he'd have loved it.
