HILARIOUS Video of the Day: “Bowling for Mermelstein”

By Debbie Schlussel
Thanks to reader Ari, this is from John Safran v. G-d. I don’t agree with Safran about liberals and “Qibla”, since they’d be falling all over themselves to accept a Muslim word in Scrabble. But the rest is hilarious. Have made the same points as the rabbi re-guns and the Holocaust:

Best Q word in Scrabble – QAT. It’s a plant/drug from Africa and it’s found in all dictionaries!

50 guns around the house? I don’t feel so bad about my stash. A friend has his stashed all over the house too. Like the cupboards over the fridge. I like that but I like to wear a small compact even if I’m just mowing the lawn. Better to have than not to have. After a while you forget it’s extra weight is there.

You know like when they talk about how lefty liberal Jews are ruining Israel – Mermelstein is the posterchild for that (Australian version). First he is goofing on the American rabbi, then he decides that he is being too subtle and not everybody would be able to discern it, but also he wants to show us that even though he adores Michael Moore, Michael Moore’s style is too blunt, and Mermelstein can do an improvement on it. And this is how far the “creative” part of it goes. But then comes the nosiating Qibla part, where he spews out all those trite liberal bromides in the defence of a very unworthy cause. I heard those theories too many times. They were wrong then and they are wrong now. But they are the liberal platform.

Well, it can be spelled a number of ways including qat, qaat, gat, chat, chad and chaad. The “kh” spelling normally refers to the voiceless velar fricative, like in the Scottish pronunciation of “loch”, while the “q” corresponds to a voiceless velar plosive, as in “Qatar”. So at least for phonological purposes the distinction is valid. However, quibbles about language and spelling seems to me to be a smaller problem than the deadly threat posed to us by the violent mindset in the Muslim world.
