The unexpected disclosure of a person's Jewishness in, or creating, an extremely awkward or combustible situation.
In his autobiography The Ragman's Son, Kirk Douglas (nee Issur Danielovich) recounts many instances of confronting anti-Semitism he encounters by people unaware the actor himself is Jewish. In a particularly notable example, Douglas explodes a Mazeltov Cocktail in the face of an anti-semitic actress immediately after bedding her, remarking at the climactic moment, "I am a Jew...You are being f...d by a Jew."
