Ready for Purim!

Purim Spoof 2011:  Every year (that Abq Jew can remember) New York's The Jewish Week puts out a Purim Spoof.  This year's Spoof headlines include:
  • Mideast Negotiator Mitchell Heads to Broadway
  • Natalie Portman Engagement Ends Jewish Single Crisis
  • ‘Jeopardy’ Computer Ordained
And, of course:

Yuri Foreman To Fight Helen Thomas

Yuri Foreman, the Belarus-born Israeli raised boxer has announced that his first fight after losing his championship belt to Miguel Cotto will be against recently retired White House correspondent Helen Thomas for the Heavyweight Title of Lebanese Descent.

“I just want to start rebuilding my career while doing something good for the Jewish people,” stated Mr. Foreman, who recites Psalms during his bouts.

Not one to be easily intimidated, Ms. Thomas stated, “I will knock him back into Germany and Poland, where he belongs.”

Mr. Foreman retorted, “I will only hit her in the face so as to not affect her on-camera appearance.”

Ms. Thomas has been training for years, she said, by beating up on Israel regularly.
