Alterkocker Worship

I don’t know who Sam Hoffman is and how he got his mom to use the F-word on camera, but he’s my new favorite Jew. Why? Because his site OldJewsTellingJokes, is the best idea EVER.

Storytelling is a Jewish tradition…Jokes are like stories, but shorter and funnier… Humor was and is the ultimate anti-depressant. My father gathered twenty of his friends to share their favorite jokes. We set three rules for the production: the joke-tellers were to be Jewish, at least sixty years of age and they were to tell their favorite joke – the one that always kills.

I’m just glad someone is videologging old Jews telling something other than Holocaust stories.

Not that those aren’t important, but after Iran bombs us all into oblivion shouldn’t future generations know what a freakin’ hilarious people we were?

Sorry. I drank cynicism for breakfast today.
