WHEN A COLUMN DOESN’T WORK OUT

Sometimes you can have an idea for a column, only to

discover too late (like at deadline) that it just isn’t going

to happen. Some things aren’t meant to be.

That’s what happened to me this week. I had an

idea for a topic: funny holiday pet stories. I planned to

get on the Internet and do a little searching, then try

to entertain you with the best stories I found. Unfortunately,

I’m still looking for those stories. It isn’t that

there weren’t any online, it’s just that they weren’t all

that funny.

I googled funny Christmas pet stories, funny Christmas

cat stories, funny holiday dog stories . . . well, I’m

sure you get the idea. But nothing I could find met my

criteria.

Next I got Siri to find me funny Chanukah pet stories.

Unfortunately this was equally unsuccessful.

There was one bright spot, however. While roaming

through Chanukah pet-related items, I came across

Adam Sandler’s amazing hit, “The Chanukah Song.”

This is a genuinely funny tune, and Sandler put out

four different versions of it. (There may be more, but

that’s all I found.)

If you haven’t heard any of these versions, go on line

and pull up “The Chanukah Song.”

You need to listen carefully to the lyrics

or you might miss some of the funniest

parts. One of my favorites is “Instead of

one day of presents, We get eight crazy

nights!” Then Sandler proceeds to identify

a bunch of entertainers who are not

known for being Jewish but actually are.

It’s a clever song – all four versions

of it. It is not anti-Jewish or offensive.

Sandler himself is Jewish and is just

having fun here. It’s funny in the same

way that “Grandma Got Run Over By A

Reindeer” is funny.

And you can always check out those

holiday pet videos if holiday shopping and preparations

are getting you down. By that time you’ll prob ably

think anything is humorous.

Hi, ho, ho!
