WE GET LAID BECAUSE OF ‘MUNICH’ THE NEWS: “Knocked Up” gives off-handed discussion of Jewish power. [The Jewish Telegraph Agency] THE CHATTER: “This film is every man’s wet dream.” (i.e. the fat dude with the Jewfro gets in Katherine Heigl’s pants.) [Rotten Tomatoes] Director Judd Apatow of "40-Year-Old Virgin" and "Freaks and Geeks" won’t settle for just a superficial laugher. [Rolling Stone] Eric Bana kicked ass as Mossad agent in "Munich," but too bad Spielberg butchered history and Tony Kushner made up Golda Meir quotes. [National Review Online]

 

OK, WE ALSO GET LAID BECAUSE OF ZIONISM THE NEWS: This year, some 300 Jewish New Yorkers, most in their 30’s, are making aliya to Israel. Wanna guess how many are single and lonely? [NYC Jewish News] THE CHATTER: Birthright perversions can wait – they may be sharing their new neighborhoods with Sudanese refugees. [Power Line Blog] Don’t worry about finding work in Tel Aviv, you can just go shopping and they’ll pay you. [expatriates.com]

 

NAZISM, COMMUNISM, BABS THE NEWS: Streisand settles for less than a mil, plays first ever concert in Germany. [The Jewish Telegraph Agency] THE CHATTER: Rumor had it that Babs wouldn’t play in Germany because of the Holocaust. [Reuters] Forget WWII, the singer said she hated her birthplace, Brooklyn. Now that’s unholy. [Ticket4-You.com]

JEWS IN THE HOOD THE NEWS: Infamous Jewish blogger, “Bagel in Harlem,” leaves the ghetto, and she hasn’t been heard from since January. [Big Shirtless Rob] THE CHATTER: One woman’s love affair with a storied NYC neighborhood. That is, until some homeless dude whacked her over the head with a bag of cans. [Bagel in Harlem] Where Jews go, Asian cuisine follows: new sushi spot in Harlem. [Harlem Fur]

 

PENISES TO THE LEFT, VAGINAS TO THE RIGHT THE NEWS: Jewish independent school in Sweden segregates the sexes. [SperoNews] THE CHATTER: But what if same-sex learning makes them better at chess? [The Federation of Jewish Communities] If the men and women don’t mix, and they wear black polyester in the winter, are Hasids really all that different from the denizens of ummah? [Gates of Vienna]

 

THIS IS WHY ISAIAH BERLIN DIED A VIRGIN THE NEWS: The perfect posh kosher wedding for only £100 per minute. [The Jewish Chronicle] THE CHATTER: Please, don’t get the M&M’s with his and her names. Actually, don’t even get married in the UK. You could have your fairytale wedding in Texas for the subscription price of London Weddings magazine. Plus in Texas you smash a beer can instead of a champagne glass. [London Weddings] Ladies, don’t forget the modestly high neckline and long sleeves. [WeddingGuideUK.com]

 

MORE BOYCOTT BOLLOCKS THE NEWS: Eric McDonald, the Transport and General Workers Union’s Birmingham branch secretary, who encourages boycott of Israeli goods, says, “Israel is very intolerant and sometimes its behavior is not dissimilar to that of the Nazis.” [The Jewish Chronicle] THE CHATTER: TGWU writes letter to Blair regarding last summer’s war in Lebanon. [T&G] Is it hypocritical if the lads down at TGWU love falafel?

 

5,000 YEARS OF HOT LOVIN’ THE NEWS: Jews are great in bed because of guilt. [thisisby.us] THE CHATTER: If only the hole in the sheet business were true… [Judaism 101] You might as well get that bullseye tattoo on your lower back since Jewish cemeteries still debate the penalty for body desecration.
