Brit Milah - Ritual Circumcision

Bris Humor

 

Comics have an easy mark when they poke fun of intimate things.  

 

We are already squirming a bit, so laughter is a relief from the discomfort... even when the joke isn't that good. That said, there are great jokes, TV episodes and stories that involve our ancient ritual.  Hazzan Glantz definitely has some favorites which he might share with you.

Ok, if you really need something punny - a definition of circumvent (n.), the opening in boxer shorts worn by Jewish men.

 

Phillybris.com is trying to compile a list of every TV reference and to update it with each new one.  It's safe to say that if the new show, "The Goldbergs," that is set in our area, makes it through this season and onto another, there will be a bris episode.

 

Feel free to e-mail additions to phillybris@gmail.com to this partial list of just the ones I have seen.
