Apparently Jerusalem police have arrested ck and some associates. Their crime? They inscribed the word â€˜allah’ on the Eastern wall of the Temple Mount.
â€œThis vandalism, coupled with Israel’s lack of archaeological supervision at Judaism’s holiest site is simply lawlessness of the first order on the part of the Government,â€ said Temple Mount expert and Hebrew University archaeologist Dr. Eilat Mazar.
Asked to explain the horrid vandalism, ck mumbled something about the power structure in Israel discriminating against Sephardic Jews. He then complained aloud that the police interfered and did not allow him to complete the inscription. He intended to write â€˜challah’ in the hopes of earning some extra cash to keep alive his hobby site, Jewlicious, which has been hemorrhaging cash recently since the addition of a new poster who goes by the moniker â€œThe Middle.â€ When asked about this, ck became slightly flushed and yelled, â€œMiddle my ass! He’s a rabid secularist leftist half-breed with Hungarian roots!â€ Then, noticing a camera upon him, ck quickly lifted his t-shirt to reveal a clean shaven chest and abdomen with the web address shmatas.com marked on it in bright red.
It seems the arrest is not all bad news for ck. Shirt sales at shmatas.com have increased dramatically over the past several hours. Also, PR specialists in Israel are already calling the not-so-young man in the hopes of securing his services for their firms. One police officer noted that an anxious woman also called in, asking if ck was married or unmarried. Her daughter, it seems, a charming and lovely 34 year old virgin (so the mother reports), is seeking a life partner with whom she could kiss and cuddle. Ck was overheard asking an officer whether the virgin was Sephardic, babelicious, and could make chakchouka like his mom, Brakha.
In an odd twist, the Kaballah Center in the U.S. has agreed to pay ck’s bail. â€œWhy not,â€ said a representative of the Center, â€œAll he needs to do is add kay-ay-bee and we can get some terrific publicity.â€ Ck is said to be mulling it over, but is afraid The Middle might call him an Orthodox prostitute and post a picture of him in a bra.
Ed. Note: So when we first saw this we laughed. TM had taken the piss outta ck again with a funny twist on an otherwise serious story. Now I’m usually pretty chill about stuff like that, but I decided to take the piss out of themiddle and respond as if I was indignant. We predicted that he would respond with outrage or something, which he did. I then added the comment “Ha ha! Gotcha back! You’re so predictable! with an appropriate smiley face to show it was cool. But by then themiddle, for some odd reason, deleted the post. Luckily I kept a copy of the post and the comments. Don’t wanna deprive anyone of a good laugh! Heh heh heh …
