“Walter! You’re Polish Catholic!”

Contain yourselves. Lebowski Fest is on its way to the Big Apple. But in a twist of irony that stings like lemon juice on a paper cut, the party falls out on Shabbos.

I know, I know. I don’t roll on f*cking Shabbos. Shomer Shabbos. Shomer f*cking Shabbos.

For all you hell-bound apikorsim, though, the info:

  1. Fuck. I was just in NYC, but had to come back to fucking Berkeley. Can’t believe I’m going to miss this.

  2. My favorite line in any movie, anywhere, is when John Goodman grumbles: “I’m as Jewish as fucking Tevye.”
