If you live in New York City, or if you’ve ever paid a visit to the fair metro during a Jewish holiday, there’s a good chance you’ve witnessed this fairly common practice: an Orthodox Jewish man, or perhaps two or three, dressed in traditional garb, stands on a street corner, asking select passersby if they’re… READ MORE »

If you’re at all sensitive to the plights of one unhinged Justin Bieber, get ready to feel uncomfortable! As for the rest of us, who have been waiting patiently in the wings for some seemingly responsible adult to call Biebs out on his bullshit … who better to step up to the plate than Zach Galifianakis?

Man, do I love a good Bill. Murray, Cosby, Clinton, Nye, Gates… I’ll take ‘em all. Bills are just the best! Here are two of them (Clinton and Gates, to be specific) captured in the form of a genuine @billclinton selfie. This looks just like a selfie my dad would take. Read: very blurry. Dads! READ MORE »

Let’s hope this will one day extend to apply retrospectively, too… A new piece of California legislature, signed off on by Governor Jerry Brown, has the potential to clear up a whole slew of problems for the minors of the future. The law, which will go into effect in 2015, will require Internet companies to… READ MORE »

When I decide it’s high time for me to procure myself some fast food French fries, the last (last!!!!!!) thing on my mind is their caloric content. No, when I decide that I done deserve some fries, I don’t care how many calories they’re gonna cost me, or where those calories are going. They are… READ MORE »

Another Fashion Week, another heap of headlines reaming out the industry for the lack of diversity on the runway — it’s not to suggest that the conversation is overplayed, but rather that the long-standing issue remains an issue, season after season. Most designers, as a general rule, in a notoriously judgmental climate, cast black and… READ MORE »

I am running out of things to say about Miley Cyrus, I mostly just wish to see a little less of her exposed tongue. It’s just so much tongue! Even Cher thinks it’s too much tongue, and also that the Cyrus tongue was “coated,” which is v. true, and v. gross.
Anyway, Miley, tongue,… READ MORE »

The magic of Brooke Mueller, Charlie Sheen’s wife #3, has always been that she makes Charlie look comparatively almost-sane. The reality of Brooke Mueller, on the other hand, is that while it’s more than likely that Charlie is a very wealthy, very famous man who has chosen in some ways to wander down the path… READ MORE »

Julia Louis-Dreyfus is a fucking genius. Let me lay it out for you: the actress and comedienne, perhaps best known as “Seinfeld”‘s Elaine, has received four Emmys, a Golden Globe, and five Screen Actors Guild Awards. She’s the only woman to have won the Emmy for three separate comedy series, and is also the most… READ MORE »

The New York Times Vows column is truly one of a kind. Week after week, the meet-cute stories land all over the spectrum, from the truly romantic to the strangely political to, very frequently, the totally twee and bizarrely short-sighted. To wit: this week’s tale, titled “Found, A Soul Mate,” which regales the romance of… READ MORE »

Oh, good, just what Judaism needs: more fetishism and bizarre cultural misappropriations! Because that whole Holocaust thing wasn’t enough persecution. No, we need more. More, I say! And it must involve Jennifer Love Hewitt. I’m going to tell you the truth; I haven’t deigned to watch the trailer for “Jewtopia”. I’m just going to put… READ MORE »

Miley Cyrus has reached her zeitgeist saturation point several times over, and I would not be upset if I never saw her bare ass or exposed tongue ever again. We’ve just seen too much of Miley (literally) in the past few months, you know? She needs to, like, go on a six-month horseback-riding retreat in… READ MORE »
