I was thinking about the orthodox jews from Southfield that got kicked off the plane for smelling bad and who are now suing for harassment. Please don't call me an antisemite if I tell you that I have lived with these people, have been on planes with these people and that I feel the pain their fellow air travelers reported. Pugh.
I once tried to go to the bathroom in the morning after an all night El Al flight and had to dance and fight my way through about fifteen or twenty orthodox dovening, schvitzing and praying on the back of the plane and frankly thought that I would pass out from the intense odor. Gottenu. Deliver me lord.
I ran this by Morty this morning and he told me that he had once worked in the jewelers district in New York and that he heartily concurred. Fecch. I am so happy I was raised reformed, we obviously got the last talmudic dispensation about soap.
Now obviously not all orthodox jews smell, I have friends and associates that are orthodox that smell fresh as daisies but there are definitely some that should go a little lighter on the torah and a little heavier on the irish spring.
