Here’s some Hanukkah math for ya.

Fergie (from the Black Eyed Peas) + fried potato pancakes = Latkelicious.

The lyrics took two weeks to perfect, and the MP3 took about sixty hours for auteur/rapper/latke-afficionado Jon Fursh to record. Where’d he get the funding? Neely and Bernie. (Mom and Dad.) Aww.

I have a low tolerance for bad parody. But thankfully, so must Fursh. Because this parody is parodilicious. It’s instantly recognizable as a parody of Fergie’s tune, the lyrics aren’t forced, and the song is refreshingly absent of overused stereotypes. So yasher koach–big Jewlicious shout out to Fursh, whose MySpace page can be viewed here.
