Good Boychick Wins the Spelling Bee

I don't think Arvind Mahankali is Jewish. I doubt he's ever been to a kosher deli. But thanks to his knowledge of traditional Jewish cuisine, Arvind is the 2013 Scripps National Spelling Bee Champion.

"May I have the language of origin please?
German-derived Yiddish"

I don't know why the audience found that so funny. But did you notice the example sentence? "Max hoped to find at least one more knaidel in his soup bowl but all he discovered was his missing lower denture." Who is the smartass who writes these things?

What Do You Give Me For? J.C. Penney Teapot and Hitler

What do you give me for J.C. Penney Teapot and Hitler?
Before you dismiss this as the insane rantings of an angry Jew, take a good look. The teapot was featured on a billboard and drivers kept stopping to take pictures of it because it does bear some resemblance to Hitler. It's a little abstract but the handle is the hair. The knob on the lid is the mustache. The spout is the Hitler salute. It may not be a 10 but it's closer than you think.

Song of the Week

"What's My Name" - Snoop Doggy Dogg
"Nine-trizzy's the yizzy
for me to fuck up shit."
Can't believe this song is 20 years old already. This whole era of "Nuthin But a G Thang" and "Dre Day" plus this song are what got me interested in rap music as a teenager.

A Misplaced Space

I don't really need to write too much about this one. The person who writes the scroll from MLB Network pressed the space bar at the wrong time and instead of "players hitting" it displayed "player shitting." And it ran during "Bad News Bears Breaking Training."
