Funny story:  Happy 2013? I Prefer Not To.

Happy 2013? I Prefer Not To.

It seems the Mayans were wrong. The world will keep traveling around the sun, or the sun around the world if you're a Fundamentalist. But this most recent apocalypse averted got me to ruminating, as is my want, about New Year's Eve and all the weight that is arbitrarily attached to this one night's passage of time. It took me back to last New Year's Eve and a question asked me, "What's your resolu...

The Election of November and High Holidays of September: What Would John Adams Do?

This September a woman asked me, "Yom Kippur, that's the holiday you buy the tickets for?" I found this somewhat disturbing since it was my Aunt Sadie. 95, I chalked it up old age. Ageist humor aside, I'll not reveal the identity of the woman who actually asked it because she is a shiksa in good standing with me. But it got me to thinking. It got me to thinking why it bothered me because I wasn...

Funny story:  Edward "Ted" Kennedy:  "Top Shelf" or just "Bargain Basement"?

Edward "Ted" Kennedy: "Top Shelf" or just "Bargain Basement"?

(New York-NY) Ted Kennedy, the Lion of the Senate or given his girth more like the Whale, died this week. The 40-year Senator eulogized by politicians while Twitter tweets "Mary Jo Kopechne is probably giving Ted an earful right now as he makes his descent into purgatory for a LONG time." What does it mean, not for the Kennedy legacy but for me? Hey, I never claimed to be a saint or even Irish Cat...

Funny story:  The Health Care Debate: Is that goose steps I hear?

The Health Care Debate: Is that goose steps I hear?

(New York-NY) Once again, to my loyal five readers (though I believe it shot up to seven last week), I apologize for not cloaking my viewpoint in satire. Simply put, there are just some issues that need to be addressed directly. Healthcare debate is one of them, actually the lack of debate. What is not open for debate is that the individuals who shut down town hall meetings were either directly...

Funny story:  Sarah Palin: Role Model? The answer is more than just a punch line.

Sarah Palin: Role Model? The answer is more than just a punch line.

(New York-NY) For my loyal readers, all five, you're used to my point of view clothed in the satire of news parody. Not exactly "The Onion", but at times I like to think they come to the level of a scallion, perhaps a leek. But something happened this weekend that simply forced me to come out from behind the parody. An event so seismic that I'm convinced like Jennifer Lopez's red carpet Grammy "t...

Funny story:  I Twitter. Therefore I Am?

I Twitter. Therefore I Am?

(New York-NY) I confess. I Twitter. I feel compelled to say that I have been on Twitter since the beginning of the year, not exactly the cutting edge, though not like the fair weather, fad Twitters like Oprah Winfrey. I thought more of her to jump on the followers bandwagon of Ashton Kutcher. She probably bought a CB radio when it was a fad as well. But the confession is not that I Twitter, but th...

Funny story:  Why Madonna Should Adopt Me

Why Madonna Should Adopt Me

(New York-NY) Allow me to step out from behind my "Wizard of Oz" like curtain of news parody, gentle reader. (And I mean "reader" literally judging from my weekly page views.) And allow me to address one reader in particular, Madonna Louise Ciccone. (Yes, the contradiction is not lost on me that in the same paragraph I claim an anemic readership I also claim that one of the most influential, not t...

Funny story:  The Ten Things Bernie Madoff Will Have To Remember In Prison

The Ten Things Bernie Madoff Will Have To Remember In Prison

(New York-NY) Chris Rock said, I paraphrase, "Every time I watch the news, and I see a crime being committed, I say 'Please don't let it be a brother. Please don't let it be a brother' Then, I see the footage. Damn." I feel the same way as a Jew with Bernie Madoff. Is it my age, the downside of 50? My parents weren't Survivors, but they knew Survivors. Pogrom fear? One of the first things I di...

The Top Ten Reasons Santa Is Downsizing This Year

(New York-NY) I think it was either Sigmund Freud or any post-rhinoplasty Bat Mitzvah girl from Long Beach (That's Long Island…not California.) who wrote "I am a Jew, and it always seemed to me not only shameful but downright senseless to deny it." And that's my sentiment at Christmas. But, like Freud, I'm not particularly religious. You could call me ultra-Reformed. Or as my friend Jon Braunhut w...

Addressing the move at a press conference this week, McCain said, "If I can survive an endorsement from George Bush, I can survive anything." (Hollywood--CA) Th...

(New York, NY) "Maxim" magazine has come out with its "100 Hottest Cabinet Members". Number one was Condoleezza Rice. And in a surprising turn, coming in at number two was Abraham Lincoln's Secretary of State, William Seward.
