What Would Jesus Douche?



Jewschool always seems to get the good stuff first. Ah well.

Makes me proud to be a Silverman.

Happy Holidays!

Finally, a non-Adam Sandler chanukah song - ...well, ok it never actually mentions Chanukah, but "Jew girl" is close enough...I can see why you are proud. Very funny in its inappropriateness...

Jer-- YOU are what makes me proud to be a Silverman. That video was cute, but not that funny, and not even that rude. She's had much better moments, like when she signed her name on my breast with a dried-up pen (ouch), or when she said:

There's no real reason to make fun of midgets, but we do it anyway-- because we CAN.

Or something like that.
I am bothering to post this because I think that we should not lower our standards of what counts as "freakin' awesome" funny-ass-shit just because some hip Jewish girl who we all want to shtup is putting it out. Just like we can't say that Heeb is funny just because it's rude and Jewish-- when it's funny, we'll call it funny. But being a stam iconoclast with no content ain't funny, even if a coupla Yiddish words are thrown in.

These cats in NYC are getting away with too much- earning all these accolades just based on the veneer of hipness. We want some friggin quality. You want funny Jew shit? Turn on some Borat.....

I'm a little bit shocked at myself that I'm going to be so conservative here, but...

Isn't it problematic that we feel so free to completely disrespect the customs of other people? (Let alone that we pretty much survive in America at their mercy, I'm not making a practical-survival arguement here, though that could be made.) Make whatever arguements you want to make about the content of Christianity, but rape Santa? It's laking even the minimal respect we should give another human and his beliefs. More than a bit crass...

i think silverman's like, "anyone who really takes santa claus seriously probably hates us jews anyway. anyone who would be offended by this video already hates us, so they deserve a roast!" i don't want to write a treatise on the theories behind it, whether or not it's "good for the jews," but i admire her fearlessness at pushing cultural buttons, and, well... her name is Silverman! i can't *not* love that!

and yes stu, getting a barfull of rednecks to sing "Throw The Jew Down The Well" is definitely more illustrative of the latent anti-semitism brimming under the surface of everyday America than is "Give The Jew Girl Toys," but i do not think that she is 'content-less'; borat and silverman are two sides of the same coin. true, she may not know all that much about judaism, and she may be marrying out, but so is Ali G!
