Middle America just doesn’t “get” kashrut. Former professional wrestling superstar Hulk Hogan and his family appear in a reality TV show. In this video clip, the Hulkster and his wife have just moved to a very Jewish and very frum neighborhood in Miami. When they go to visit the neighbors with fresh baked cookies, they discover that no one can eat them because the cookies are not kosher. Afterwards they start planning a party where they will invite all their neighbors and serve them kosher food… but first they need to figure out what that means. Lessons learnt? Bananas are kosher. Men and women shaking hands? Not so kosher. Grilling kosher and unkosher meat together on a grill that hasn’t been dipped in a mikva, even if it’s new?

Geez. What the hell do you think? Aw just watch the video. It’s really funny…

OK, well, not funny ha! ha! More like funny… ha. But still, props to the Hulkster for being so considerate and chill. For an added bonus, read some of the moronic comments from some of the YouTubers.

  • Props to Hulk-mania for being pretty awesome about the whole thing, and also some sympathy for his look of utter dejection upon learning the meat he was cooking wasn’t kosher and that he’d need to kash his entire grill in the mikveh to make it happen.

    anti-props for mrs. hogan constantly introducing him as “the hulkster”.

  • From my understanding of Kashrut – the grill would have been absolutely fine – had he made sure to let flames come up to it before starting to cook and had he used a separate spatula. You can use a beach grill without taking it to a mikveh. Right, Rabbi Yo?

    Also, kosher doesn’t necessarily mean no pain, but we won’t burst the Hogan’s bubble.

    Still, gotta love his accommodating spirit. Good man.

  • Never mind the video (it is really funny, though… favorite line: “why don’t we just tell ’em it’s kosher?”)— I WANT their kitchen!!!!

  • Just on a funny note:
    My mom once met Hulk Hogan at Detroit Metro Airport. She turned around in a convenience shop, where she was buying a book, and there he was, standing behind her, trying to get to the book shelf.

    He said, “Excuse me, ma’am, can I get through?”

    After watching the video, it seems he really is that nice.
