An old chestnut

Turns out one of my favorite lines from Portnoy's Complaint is used in the "Wiktionary" definition of "shikse."

My father…and a shikse? Can’t be. Was beyond his ken. My own father – fucked shikses? I’ll admit under duress that he fucked my mother…but shikses? I can no more imagine him knocking over a gas station.
