Vocabulary Lesson Number 14


JEWCHE \'jooshnoun: 1. A person - typically male - who happens to be Jewish and is also a total douchebag.*

You couldn't pay me a million dollars to go back to Hebrew School. I simply can't function when surrounded with that high a concentration of jewches.

(This baby looks like a very nice person. It is unlikely that he will grow up to be a jewche.) 

*As we've mentioned before, we're Jewish so we feel comfortable being self-loathing, self-deprecating Jews. Please join with us in a fun way, not a Hitler-y way. Thanks.

Brought To You By WOMAN...Wait Up!

Yes, that's a red bra wrapped around a woman's head. But, judge not. It's saving her life! 

As we've mentioned, as children we created a faux-company called "Woman" which made all kinds of ridiculous items for your feminine parts. Now we're grown-ups who regret never having actually invented any of the asinine products we made up as twelve-year-old kids. With that, we introduce you to The Emergency Bra. Created by Dr. Elena Bodner, it's an actual bra that in case of emergency can quickly transform into a face mask to protect the wearer from harmful airborne particles. It's no joke. 

We feel like in an actual horrifying emergency we'd probably be having a panic attack and forget to remove our bras and put them on our faces. But that's just us. 

Would you wear The Emergency Bra? (Are you wearing The Emergency Bra right now?)

Mouth wide open equals fun.

(Mel & El totally in Times Square for the New Year's Eve celebration. If you squint, you can see Dick Clark.)
Dear Lovelies,

Twenty eleven is here and in full effect. What's it gonna be like? We. Don't. Know. But we would like to discuss it with you in depth. 

Here's the plan: meet us this Thursday, January 6th (in 3 days!) at Comix around 7:30PM. We'll sing some crazy-ass songs and tell you some crazy-ass things that have been going on and you can regale us with your predictions for this brand new decade.

Make a reservation by clicking here.

This next MEL & EL: Our Time of the Month will fulfill your New Year's resolutions to:

A) have more joy in your life!
B) save money - tickets are only $10 with NO food or drink minimum!
C) lose weight!

We're not one hundred percent sure how the show will help you lose weight. But if you come and choose to order a Diet Coke instead of a regular Coke or a delicious salad instead of the chicken fingers, you'll definitely be on the right track.
Do you want to screw up your New Year's resolutions by the second week in January? We didn't think so. Save yourself by making a reservation here and/or telling all of your adorable friends to do the same.
