A note from Ayo: I tend to keep company with a lot of rabbis and Jewish educators. Some of them flat out love Jewrotica and others have “hesitations”, but most secretly follow the site – despite the fact that they could never publicly “like” us on Facebook.
A handful of rabbis have been floating the idea of Hamentaschen Monologues to me for weeks now. As we enter into the last hours of our Purim festivities, I present to you our kick-off Hamentaschen Monologue for 2013 – written by a Rabbi and designed to be sung loud and proud and clear to the tune of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”!
Somewhere, if you’re a woman, between your thighs
There’s a shape of a muntasch—how did you not realize?
Somewhere a soft, gooey filling, is good to eat
And a celebration of women
Gives us this special treat.
Someday we’ll all stop lying that
This food is someone’s ear or hat—it’s simple!
Whether filled with melted lemon drops,
Poppies, prunes or lollipops,
It’s a fertility symbol.
Now you all see the truth, so very clear
Our birth comes through Hamentaschen
They’re so very near and dear.
A vote for Hamentaschen is a vote for women
Here—and everywhere—this year!
One point goes toward Team Hamentaschen!
Then again, with Passover just around the corner, maybe someone has a Matzah Ball Monologue in store for us?
Happy Purim, everyone!
