The Marcus Clan – Jewish?

I recently discovered The Marcus Clan on Facebook. The group is for anyone with the surname of Marcus. Oddly, there seems to be a large percentage of Marcus’ who are Jewish. I don’t know much about my father’s family or history. The group’s bio states:

If your surname is Marcus then you belong here! Our aim is to create the biggest gathering of the Marcus Clan on facebook!!! Please invite anyone who has this surname.So who are you and where are you/your family from? I bet you’re a Jew 😉

The last line is telling, and so are the comments on the page. Maybe I am a Jew or have Jewish heritage? That would explain why I am so funny.
