Izzy Grinspan, previously in charge of Jewcy's editorial operations, has surfaced in another Yiddishly-inflected publication, recently.

Jewcy spies (in the form of Jewcy's original art director, Dave Choe) sent word — and a scanned image — that Izzy and new husband Andy took the joyous occasion of their wedding day and besmirched it by posing with a copy of MAD Magazine. I say "new husband" because Izzy goes through husbands faster than my mom goes through excuses for why she ate sixty-three bags of potato chips. Chips which she also went through quickly.

There's a number of weird things going on here. For one, this story involves two ex-Jewcy employees (of which there are only a few), and for another, it involves one of those employees reading MAD Magazine.

Here's the pic. Note the firmness of Izzy's arms. She had been working out for months prior at her mom's suggestion:

I had to send the picture to Izzy, as apparently the Jews over at MAD don't send out comps to people they make fun of in Letters section. I asked her if she had anything to say.

?(05:33:38 PM) Izzy Grinspan: i would just say that yes, andy was indeed wearing cut-offs (05:33:42 PM) Izzy Grinspan: as was the rabbi, standing behind us (05:33:51 PM) Izzy Grinspan: it was actually a jorts-themed wedding (05:33:55 PM) Craig Leinoff: haha, that's your rabbi? Not your brother? (05:34:02 PM) Craig Leinoff: hahaha (05:34:05 PM) Izzy Grinspan: it's andy's brother (05:34:08 PM) Izzy Grinspan: who is also a rabbi (05:34:08 PM) Craig Leinoff: I see (05:34:12 PM) Craig Leinoff: He looks like your brother (05:34:19 PM) Izzy Grinspan: that's because all jews are related

I enjoyed talking to Izzy so much that I contacted Amy Odell, Jewcy's old office manager, but she refused to make any statements on the record in accordance with the terms of her restraining order.
