‘Book of Mormon’ Wants Tim Tebow In the Audience

tim_tebow_tebowing_2

I don't follow any sports (with the weird exception of the Olympics, which I categorize as a reality show), but even I had heard that Christian QB Tim Tebow was switching teams and joining the New York Jets. Although the team plays in New Jersey, his proximity to the Big Apple has plenty of businesses hoping for a Tebow-related boost and delis all over town are coming up with Tebow-related sandwich names.There's one surprising offer for Tebow, though: The Book of Mormon. The megahit Broadway … [Read more...]

Shaquille O’Neal Drops Some Hebrew on The Daily Show

The other night, Jon Stewart interviewed basketball great Shaquille O'Neal on The Daily Show. Near the end of the interview, Jon mentioned that his son loves Shaq and wants to be a pro basketball player, and Jon wanted to know how he was going to break it to his son that Jews aren't known for their basketball skills.

Well, This Was Inevitable: A Jewish Parody of Tim Tebow

As I've said before elsewhere, Jewish people love to make lame knockoffs of every big pop culture story.
