It seems like a million years ago when a small chunk of the media was really fascinated with the story about Jews buying suppositories to make it through their Yom Kippur fast, but alas, it was only last Friday. `

In case you missed it, we believe the trail leads back to The Brooklyn Paper, with their brilliantly titled article, "Bump in the trunk! Jews rushing to get caffeine suppositories," which led to the Gothamist PSA, "It’s Almost Yom Kippur, Have You Taken Your Caffeine Suppository?" Finally The Village Voice asked " What’s Up The Jews’ Asses on Yom Kippur?"

To which commentor "bubbelah" replied:

 

"To concentrate with an empty stomach, maybe they ought to get some adderall."

 

It’s usually not the best idea to take the advice of an anonymous commentor to a blog, but holy crap "bubbelah," you’re a genius, and why didn’t we think of that?
