You are being tweaked. And it’s really, really funny.
The website Yiddish Curses for Republican Jews has elbowed its way onto the scene and it’s making a splash like you wouldn’t believe. It’s a curse generator — one to which you can contribute, if you think you’re enough of a wit — that deploys the deadly Yiddish wit that forms the substrate for 48.3% of all American comedy at the machers who just don’t get it. Let me spin the wheel a few times so you can enjoy!
“May your grandchildren baptize you after you’re dead.”
“May you have a rare disease and need an operation that only one surgeon in the world, the winner of the Nobel Prize for Medicine, is able to perform. And may he be unable to perform it because he doesn’t take your insurance. And may that Nobel Laureate be your son.”
“May your son the doctor introduce you to his fiancée, Bristol Palin.”
“May you spend your whole life supporting and voting for and sending money to Israel, and may you one day be actually forced to move there.”
That’s not funny. OK, yes it is. We’re just not supposed to make those sorts of jokes in front of the goyim.
Growing up a Jew in Orange County taught me one thing for sure: most people who read this aren’t going to appreciate it. Therefore, this is your weekend Open Thread. (P.S.: people on suspension, of which there is only one and he shall here be unnamed, don’t even bother trying to comment on this one.)
One more thing: if anyone wants to come up with an Orange County Curse Generator, that could be a mitzvah!
