Soon it will make Jeopardy, too.

"Chillul Hashem for $500, Alex?"

I appreciate the effort, and Hikind is nuts. But getting a black person to say matzah balls is not funny.

Purim 2013: So G-d Made a Rabbi

Cute video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JU4N_QrreSo

Apologies to: When Doves Cry by Prince:

Dig if you will the picture
Of Hikind attending a bris
The sweat of his body covers him
Can you my boychick
Can you picture this?

Dream if you can a courtyard
An ocean of Goys dressed like Jews
Galiardo strikes curious poses
He feels the heat
The heat of an angry dude

Chorus:
How can constituents stand him?
Blackface a costume that's old? (So old)
Maybe I'm just too demanding
Maybe I'm just like Shmarya, a scold
Maybe he's just like his rabbi
Who thinks he's crucified (Not crucified)
Why does he scream like a baby?
This is what it sounds like
When Dov schreis

Watch if you will Jon Stewart
See how he chortles inside
He's got the audience all tied up [with laughter]
Don't let Dov disgrace Jews
Doesn't Dov have pride?

Chorus 2x

When Dov schreis (Dov schreis, Dov schreis)2x

Don't Lie (Don't Lie)

When Dov schreis 3x

When Dov schreis (Dov schreis, Dov schreis, Dov schreis)

Don't lie
"Gevalt!" don't schrei
Don't lie
Don't lie

This clip is awesome.

Loved the clip. Fight an insult with humor.

It's the English teacher in me, but, Shmarya, I think you mean 'escapade', not 'escape', above.

YL, excellent as usual.

And, Jon Stewart, hilarious!

Hikind got it right when he dressed up as a clown.

Thanks, MM.

Presumably DS's 'point' is that when a black man (Eddie Murphy) impersonates a Jew (or a harlequin mime???) nobody makes a fuss.

Well DS you are as dumb as a post if you cannot understand the difference.

"[...](or a harlequin mime???)[...]"

The Harlequin -- if you are referring to the character that I have in mind -- has historical antecedents to the commedia dell'arte stock comic character of the Italian High Renaissance. It has no connection to black American performers like Eddie Murphy.

YL, that is amazing. Shouldn't it be possible to monetize these?

Thanks, SBW. I might do a book of them to benefit this site.

Many Jews would find a Jew dressed as a priest to be funny , but are outraged if a Gentile were to dress as a Hasid. Same thing.

His face looks more orange, like he slathered on an inch of tanning lotion. His face is like a basketball or his shirt. Still in poor taste. Doesn't know when to stop shoving his foot down his throat either. The Daily Show clip was a riot.

He looks like my mother.
