Watching Sen. Hatch in that video reminded me of my great-uncles or grandfathers who we humored when they wanted to play in our games so we could get some extra Hanukkah gelt.

That's not what I expect a "Rasheeda" to look like.

There's nothing like a Mormon Jew.

The rap he does at the end is pretty impressive.

Way to pander to those two or three Jewish votes in Utah. Actually not surprised, grew up Mormon, and the Mormon community kind of looks at the Jewish community the way white kids in the suburbs look at black rappers on BET. Of course, since few Mormons know many actual Jews, this leads to some interesting attempts to copy the cooler older religion.

I think this is probably the 2nd worst song recorded in history right behind that Ground Zero Mosque song. I actually felt embarrassed for the guy.

That's nothing compared to the timeless classic he wrote in '76

"Seven days of holy underwear changes"

Hatch is a RIAA loving douche. I have not voted for him in years. Its time for him to go. I really decided I hated him when he proposed a bill that would allow RIAA to sue the makers of DVD/CD burners if their products were used to violate copy right law.

Be careful Fark, he might just sue you for linking to that youtube video.

/Really don't like him
//Party on you crazy Jews =)
///Still thinks that Adam Sandler's Hanukkah song is the best.

Is it Hanukkah or Chanukkah? Bar mitzvah or bat mitzvah? These are things we need to know.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Is it Hanukkah or Chanukkah?

Neither. This year it's Chranrocknukyularah.

Bar mitzvah or bat mitzvah? These are things we need to know.

Bar Mitzvah is the term for boys men. Bat Mitzvah is the term for girls women.

This melody sounds like it should be at the beginning of a Saturday morning cartoon show.

When I was in 1st or 2nd grade there was only one Jewish girl in the school, possibly in the whole town (7,000 people in rural Idaho). I didn't really understand what it meant to be Jewish, except that while the rest of three grades were on stage practicing Christmas carols, she sat alone in the audience looking miserable because her parents wouldn't let her participate.

I felt pretty sorry for her at the time, but in hindsight I guess she got off pretty easy for killing Jesus.

No kidding. It's like hitting the trifecta of Fark hatred.

You are the man (or woman), subby.

/and there's even some RIAA topping to go with it

Hatch is engaging in his own personal war on christmas. this is an outrage!
 
2010-11-30 05:50:47 PM
Hanukkah?

I'm sorry, but as an Aryan - I'm offended!

Please rename it to "Eight days of Holiday."

Thank you!

DUNK!

That must really add character to the flavor of the water.

/no double dipping!

The production quality was crap. Are you sure this guy is a RIAA enthusiast? They could have cut him a deal on a studio and sound mixer for all that pole smoking he's been doing over the years.

That singer was one hottie - red sea pedestrian or not...

Here's the story on why Hatch wrote the song.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but was it really "seeking religious freedom"? It was more of "being God's chosen elite, favored above all others".

this is a song, that uh, there's a lot of xmas songs out there, but not
Too many about hanukkah, so I wrote a song for all those nice little jewish
Kids who don't get to hear any hanukkah songs--here we go...

Put on your yalmulka, here comes hanukkah
Its so much fun-akkah to celebrate hanukkah,

Hanukkah is the festival of lights,
Instead of one day of presents, we have eight crazy nights.

When you feel like the only kid in town without a x-mas tree, heres a list of
People who are jewish, just like you and me:

David lee roth lights the menorrah,
So do james caan, kirk douglas, and the late dinah shore-ah

Guess who eats together at the karnickey deli,
Bowzer from sha-na-na, and arthur fonzerrelli.

Paul newmans half jewish; goldie hawns half too,
Put them together--what a fine lookin' jew! [esus]

You don't need deck the halls or jingle bell rock
Cause you can spin the dreidl with captain kirk and mr. spock--both jewish!
[esus]

Put on your yalmulka, it's time for hanukkah,
The owner of the seattle super sonic-ahs celebrates hanukkah.

O.j. simpson-- not a jew!
But guess who is...hall of famer¡ºrod carew--(he converted!)

We got ann landers and her sister dear abby,
Harrison fords a quarter jewish--not too shabby!

Some people think that ebeneezer scrooge is,
Well, he's not, but guess who is:all three stooges. [esus]

So many jews are in show biz--
Tom cruise isn¹t, [tacit] but I heard his agent is. [esus]

Tell your friend veronica, it's time you celebrate hanukkah
I hope I get a harmonica, on this lovely, lovely hanukkah.

So drink your gin-and-tonic-ah, and smoke your mara-juanic-ah,
If you really, really wanna-kah, have a happy, happy, happy, happy
Hanukkah¡¡. happy hanukka!
