The Best YouTube Video on Israel so far...

This video rocks, pure and simple. Well edited, great music, and it explores one of the most central political issues in modern Israeli life...

... Hummus. Found this one on the esential blog, The Hummus Blog, where the video was called "the best hummus video yet." It wasn't all that long ago I was getting my favorite hummous in those flimsy pink plastic bags. And that ridiculous face they make when they actually eat the stuff? That's how you know it is good. This video sums up the Israeli expereince in so many ways. Watch it twice...

"Braai" means "Barbecue" in Afrikaans.

Take a right on what?

Exit 34- no, no, 35. No, 34. I mean...

Hebrew School? It's like torture, but with lots of happy songs and clapping.

While I'm busy teaching Hebrew School, I feel like you should share in the misery. Time for you and all the little Warnicks to brush up on learning Hebrew. Read this article at the wonderful Uncyclopedia (the Hebrew version of this parody of Wikipedia called the Aincyclopedia has a logo at left). One of my favorite parts of the article:

"This is the famous letter Chet. This sound is pronounced as a very deep CH. No no, not a CH like in CHANGE but a CH like in CHIZBELLAH חיזבאללה. The proper way to pronounce this letter is take a nut and shove it down your throat as far down as possible and then observe the sounds you make as you try to cough it out. Got it? There is your Chet. "

The cure for beard envy... and frostbite!

So while I will have already bought one, here's a great winter gift for those who live where it snows.

I give you: the Beard Head, a grand ski cap created by snowboarders who just wanted that facial foliage.

Yes, the mustaches are interchangeable, and it comes in a range of colors, including Viking (pictured), lumberjack, grandpa and of course, pirate. More information at

A Warnickian Ride

A short Warnickian journey Eastbound on Fountain Ave. in L.A. from Ardmore to Berendo. The blue building at the end is a big-ass Scientology center. Guess what CD was on in the car?

With a spoon and feather?

Passover is the holiday where Jews commemorate their liberation from slavery in Egypt by moving heavy furniture and appliances to look for things that fell back there last June.

And there it was.

Chag Kasher V'sameach to one and all.

THE Quintessential Warnick Express Clip

OK, OK, so I just posted something five minutes ago. This takes the cake.

Let's just say that if the original Warnick express -- the red Aerostar -- or even possibly the even older gray Olds Cutlass, could compose music on its own, it would probably sound like this.

The video is Sprockets meets craptastic video effects. But the music is pure Woodley Road/Skokie Lagoons on a Saturday Night.


Lovely Torah
