Maxim has teamed up with the state of Israel to point out what every American Jew already knows: that IDF soldiers are foxy.  Naturally, the Maxim campaign has already created controversy among those who think Israel's chosen a declassé wingman, a topic the New York Post–also a class act–covered today with the headline "Piece in the Mideast." 

But here's why this is especially interesting, at least to people like me who spend most of our lives staring into a glowing screen: Gawker's having a contest to see if their readers can come up with a better headline, and the comments are not only relatively funny, but nice.  Is it possible that bringing up Judaism makes a bunch of hardened NYC media types get all gentle and kindhearted?

Then again, the comment section also demonstrates something we at Jewcy know all too well: It's hard to come up with a new Jewish pun.  Go enjoy the lack of bitchiness, and then see if you can do them one better.
