The Pun Conundrum
Over the weekend, while walking the aisles of my local BevMo, I stumbled upon the following beer.
I stared sideways at the label for a few seconds, took a quick picture with my cell phone and posed the following question on my Twitter feed:
I think I need a ruling from my Jewish friends. Offensive or all in good fun?
M'man Sam thought it was harmless, as he responded, "Good fun. Good beer."
Beer Snob Mike commissioned an in-house research committee. His findings: "According to my wife, mostly good fun. Mascot dude's a wee bit offensive."
And, Movie Joe got gloriously faux theological: "[I'm] not Jewish, but the dominion that beer-loving Hasidim is holding over the globe seems more than a little Zionist."
Let's all be glad no one asked this guy.
Ummm...the second guy.
