How to Give a Pullover a Bris

February 3rd, 2011  |  by  |  Published in Uncategorized

From our faithful Russian tipster, comes this video called “Elena Malysheva and the Member” that our tipster says “has had Moscow laughing all week.” That is, of course, no mean feat: Moscow hasn’t laughed for an entire week since Sean Connery tried to speak with a Russian accent.

There’s not much to add to this lovely video. The older woman is Malysheva, a well-known TV host who has a show called “Health” on Russia’s Channel One. I don’t know who the other people are, but the Jew (a mohel, I presume?) looks like he couldn’t be less comfortable if Malysheva was cutting his beard instead of that woman’s, umm, foreskin. I know the klezmer music was an especially awkward touch.

The sprinkles on her hair? Those are microbes, Malysheva explains, that get gunked up in the foreskin and cause infections in little boys. Never mind the uncertainty surrounding health benefits of circumcision: the use of sprinkles in this woman’s hair was an inspired piece of pop-medicine. Dr. Oz take note.

Also, as the callout points out midway through the clip, Malysheva not only manages to give this woman’s pullover a bris, but she also cuts off a chunk of her hair. All genius.
