A Yemenite Jew and an Ashakenaz Jew are having a picnic.
It sounds like the beginning of a joke. Maybe something about kashrut. Maybe it’s Shabbat and the Yemenite is having piping hot soup and the Ashakenaz is eating some kind of delicious vegetable emulsified and drown in obscurity by oil, eggs and flour. (I have philosophical problems with kugel, okay?!) But that was my first date. (The picnic part, that is.)
A Yemenite Jew and an Ashakenaz Jew are having an engagement party.
Uh oh, sounds like someone is going to argue about the music.
