Jon Stewart's Hot Dog Bris

If you were worried that the Hebrew National class action case had slipped by Jon Stewart, fear not!

After a clip from CNN about the controversy ran on “The Daily Show” last night, Stewart exclaimed “WHAT? Not 100% kosher! Or as it’s known to Jews: not kosher!” Impressing us with his Talmudic knowledge, he offered a few possibilities for how exactly the hot dog meat could indeed not be kosher. “Some of the rats that fell into the meat pulverizer have cloven hooves?” he quipped hitting on some of the fine points of kashrut, as well as the unappetizing shortcomings of the meat industry in general.

If you’re still concerned about your hot dog’s kosher status, Stewart promises us “There is one surefire way to guarantee your hot dog is kosher, and that is with a Jon Stewart 100% certified hot dog bris.” We don’t want to give away what exactly happened when Stewart attempted to perform one such bris. We’ll just say that the parents of the little guy were real wieners for letting Stewart try such a stunt.
