    I don’t understand the “Jop Title” joke.

    It’s not like someone is going to explain it to you. If you want to understand the joke, figure it out.

    Al Jolson was white singer and entertainer. He starred in the movie “The Jazz Singer”, which was the first “talkie”. It was a musical, and in the number “Mammie”, he appeared in black face makeup. (Mammie is probably his best known song today.) Today, black face makeup is considered racially insensitive and inappropriate.
