The New York office of hahamusic (aka me) is taking a short trip up to Rhode Island this weekend for my cousin’s bar mitzvah. It should be an interesting time, since this cousin will never be 13 years old, on account of him always being 5 years old. Forever. And you simply can’t be both 5 years old and 13 at the same time. So I’m looking forward to experiencing a complete impossibility. I’ll let you know how that goes.
In the meantime, here’s the full version of “Werewolf Bar Mitzvah,” (written by the incredibly talented Tami Sagher) from the best show on tv, 30 Rock. Sagher, for those of you whose brains are built like mine (built to remember incredibly minute details about movies/music/comedy/etc, but not important stuff like your own cell-phone number), played the E! News wardrobe lady in Knocked Up. And of course, it’s performed by the inimitable Tracy Morgan, whose Wikipedia page contains this jewel:
According to reports from the scene, Morgan smelled of alcohol, marijuana, semen, and peanuts, a potential violation of his probation for a DUI charge.
This makes me laugh out loud every time I read it. I just think of the cops trying to discern all the different things that make up the smell emanating from his person. Like taking a whiff and saying, “Well, I can definitely smell the alcohol, marijuana and semen … but is that a hint of peanuts?” Like analyzing a fine wine, except just figuring out what goes into “strip-club smell.”
