Episode 1: Love Boat Sharia, Brandon Davies and We Google Muslim/Jew Jokes

Overheard in this week’s episode of Hey! That’s My Hummus!:

“Charo?  Maybe we shoulda stuck to talking about hummus…”

“If that’s what it takes, I’m going to embrace Sharia law… if it means Jersey Shore goes off the air.  Sorry J-Wow.”

“I can’t say Mormon?”

“How many Muslims does it take to screw in a light bulb?”

    Quick clarification/correction: The court case cited in segment 1 took place in 2010, not 2002 AND the defense’s claims regarding the husband’s rights over his wife are generally unsupported even within the strictest interpretations of Sharia law. I was obviously too busy ranting about Gopher too accurately address that. Darn you, Gopher.

    You’ve got yourself at least one loyal listener: ME! Tickled to wake up this morning and the first tweet I read was yours announcing a new episode. I had to listen right away and it didn’t fail to entertain. The Love Boat theme was a hoot! I can’t help laughing when I hear it. It brings back memories of how cheesy that show was!

    Your topics were varied and timely. I agree with you, Faiqa, on the BYU suspension. People want to do what they please at EVERY moment in the USA & yet belong to restrictive things like private universities, clubs & even churches where expectations are to follow their rules. People can’t have it both ways but thankfully freedom of speech affords them the right to bitch about it anyway.

    My take on why Muslim jokes aren’t funny is you have to come from a place of knowledge or experience for a joke to be funny. Kind of like people are allowed to say what they want about their own family but anyone else does it, it’s inappropriate? It would be like a skinny chick who’s never been overweight telling fat jokes. Not gonna fly.

    Congrats on another episode under your belts! I would love it if you started a poll with many different subjects and asked people to vote on which they want to hear you talk about.

      Thanks for your feedback and we definitely appreciate your loyalty!! I like the idea of the poll. I kind of envisioned our Twitter account being an informal version of that.

    Shiny you are killing me, Chumus, it is Chumus. Represent buddy, pronounce the ‘Chet’ like in chutzpah. 😉

    I think that Faiqa is reasonable in being concerned about the application of anti-Sharia laws.It is a slippery slope.

    Great show. I’m listening to the part about Brandon Davies and whether or not to call them Mormons or members of the Church of Latter Day Saints, and I wanted to see if either of you remember those CoLDS public service ads that played during the Saturday and Sunday morning cartoons. I dunno if they still play them, but they were on all the time when I was growing up.

    My favorite was a young boy and his grandfather fishing on a pond someplace. And I’m going to paraphrase here, but it went something like this:

    Boy: “Grandpa, what does prejudiced mean?”
    {the grandfather quickly explains}
    Grandpa: “Why do you ask?”
    Boy: “Because Michael said I was prejudiced.”
    Grandpa: “Who is Michael?”
    Boy: “Michael is my Jewish friend.”
    Grandpa: “Well, then you are prejudiced. Because you consider Michael to be your Jewish friend, and not just your friend.”
    {a message from the Church of Latter Day Saints…the Mormons}

    I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun me and my many Jewish friends (Hello? I live on Long Island, Duh, Jewish winning!) have had with that ad over the years. It still brings a smile to my face.
