Via commentor MRK, because it made him smile, as it did me. Shana Tova Umetukah, a good and sweet year, to the believers among us, and may we all be inspired to reflect upon our transgressions and strive for a better tomorrow!
Early Morning Open Thread: Rosh Hashanah
Sweet as apples in honey. May all be inscribed for a good year in the Book of Life.
Well, I was going to point it out, but if you go and watch on YouTube, in the “More” notes below the video they do give credit to the source of the music, Shakira and “This time it’s Africa”.
It was a cute bit. If only the Abrahamic religions were as benign as some pretend them to be.
I do hope that all new years bring increase in peace and wellness.
Next year in Jerusalem.
Oops!! Wrong Jewish holiday. That’s Pasach.

I keep waiting for Sarah Silverman to appear.
“Father Christmas, give us some money
Don’t mess around with those silly toys.
We’ll beat you up if you don’t hand it over
We want your bread so don’t make us annoyed
Give all the toys… to the little rich boys”

I want a shofar.
every time i hear someone talk about how they want to ‘blow the shofer’ i giggle a bit.
luckily, this year we managed to get off our asses and get tickets to high holiday services, so we don’t have to stand in the back of the hall. yay us.

@chopper: I know, right? Clearly the shofar is the best endowed dude at the temple.
Which, if you’ve seen some of these six-foot-long, gold-encrusted shofarim, doesn’t seem too farfetched. Or, possibly, that someone’s compensating.
Ten comments to a dick joke! Shanah tovah, kids!
Cutest little oven dodgers I ever did see.
L’shanah Tovah y’all! Which is on my favorite wedding gift to give.
well, that’s gotta be the gayest thing I’ve ever seen. And I used to live in the Castro.
This must mean it’s time for the Colbert AtonePhone(TM)!
@Matthew Reid Krell:
i think ‘blowing the shofer’ is something paris hilton would do. i’m sure he’s done a good job driving her around all these years and could use a bonus…

Thanks for the vid, Anne. I’m in a grumpy, misanthropic mood today, and that “Dance M.F.” video above just struck me as an ungodly noise today. A little positivity is probably what I need.

I kind of hate this music, and kind of can’t get it out of my head. I think I better click Play again.
Happy, healthy, successful 5772 even to the atheists and pagans!
(I would say this blog has taught me a lot about discipline and self-control but that would completely blow my snark quotient.)
@Yutsano: That is awesome, just can’t show the wife.
“Next year in Jerusalem” is appropriate for any Jewish holiday.
And that video is adorable. “Any wrong can be made right” :)
A bit too cutesy and cloyingly cliché for my tastes, but I appreciate the good intentions.
Very nice. Thanks for sharing.
Cute video, but what are they doing giving honey to a baby? My womb may be a barren wasteland where no one’s seed can find purchase, but I know better than that.
wouldn’t apples decorated as pigs be considered treyf?
Yeesh — Christian pop, but with Jews. It’s got the same creepily insipid vibe about it — you imagine behind this there’s some crazed geriatric cult leader who is boffing every single one of those clean-cut pretty young things with the glazed, serene look in their eyes.
Video clearly explains why the Jews rule Hollywood.
