From my Chasidic mother-in-law comes this slightly inflammatory, slightly funny mockup of the KosherPhone — this, mind you, coming from a country where 95% of the entire Jewish population lives within two very specific neighborhoods of two cities. In other words, their image of Orthodox Jews is informed more by "Gray's Anatomy" than by ever seeing an actual Orthodox Jew….then again, I suppose that's true for most of America, too. (Nonetheless: ozzie ozzie ozzie!)

"Chasers" is Oz's equivalent to the Daily Show and the State, rolled into one. For kicks, they dress up like Bin Laden and try to get served in military base cafeterias. If you'd like to skip the uncomfortably inherent anti-Semitism in the beginning ("cost for calling Palestinians: death!") and get straight to the rabbis with strap-ons, skip to about 0:51.

And as you do, remember this: I got this from my mother-in-law.
