I sort of look like a Czechoslovakian accordion player in my Embroidered Afghan vest but there are so many Muslims in my neighborhood that I don't look out of place. I didn't get the hat. I sort of feel like singing Havah Nagilah in Hebrew. http://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=if+i+were+a+rich+man+youtube&FORM=VIRE1#view=detail&mid=8438F909AA0F0EE0D0168438F909AA0F0EE0D016
