The First Cut is the Deepest

I do understand what Bravo was going for with this ad. I really do:

See, traditionally, Top Chef has a knife as part of its logos. And as famous chefs, these contestants are always striving for those elusive 5 stars that signify the highest honor a restaurant could get.

Except that the way that knife-star is shaped, it really looks like it could double as an advertisement for Top Chef Mohel (that's pronounced moyle for us goys).

Each week, 12 contestants will compete at one very special bris to determine who's got the sharpest knife, the cleanest cuts, and the quietest babies. Twists will include having to perform the circumcision blindfolded, with one hand tied behind their backs, and while simultaneously whipping up a delicious pot of matzoh ball soup. Oy vey!


  1. I just felt a pain I'd rather not feel again.

  2. I heard a rumor that "America's Next Top Mohel", hosted by Sarah Silverman is coming to Comedy Central this Fall.

    And by "heard" I mean "completely fabricated based on me own weird desires."

  3. It's a less-than-subtle reminder that Jews control the media. We thought people were forgetting.
