Episode #209: Bread-sliced bagels are a travesty

Jewish news comes at you rapid-fire this week, as the boys rifle through item after sometimes disturbing, sometimes amusing items that include Wacky Ken Livingstone, the Iditarod, Ukrainian comedians, Ricky Henderson, rapid-fire sandwich-making and poor-quality Girl Scout cookies. But first, the civility of the deep south has Rosen wondering about the priorities of his big-city brethren and no one can match Goldbrener’s knowledge of the tiny nation of Djerba — even as he underestimates the powerful cleverness of Jews and the American Jewish Establishment (TM).

Standing out among the blizzard of news:

Is bread-slicing bagels good for the Jews?

No no no NO. It is not. In fact, Goldbrener stops just short of declaring a National Emergency over “St. Louis  Style” bagel presentation. No. Also: eat a bagel, Ice-T.

Most beautiful car ever made.
