Eastern European Jews took over so much that there is rarely any limelight on any Jues rocking it like the Rambam (side).

    It’s a good costume for Purim and I’m glad you are feelin’ all gangsta in it, but I wouldn’t suggest hangin’ in ‘da hood with that get-up or you will find some official mo’fo’s gettin’ up on ‘ya.

  • what does this blog have to do with anything?

    i guarantee that guy in the picture is a douche-bag.

  • I will NEVER move on from Tom Jones…51 days, 18 minutes , 31 seconds until ATLANTIC CITY, but yeah, I’m mixin’ it up …I ‘preciate Tupac.
