Amar’e Stoudemire was just asking to be parodied.
The New York Knick’s out-of-left-field Tweets (e.g. “I’m going 2 Israel 2 study Hebrew. It’s time 2 get a better understanding on who we R”) left everyone (including us) speculating about his possible Jewish roots.
Now some mysterious Twitter user has taken this to its logical conclusion. Fake Amar’e — with tweets like “The Seinfeld show is so much funnier now, imma have to get the box set and watch it all over again” — is frightfully close to Stoudemire’s real newfound (and occasionally absurd) enthusiasm for Judaism.
So today, when the real Amar’e tweeted: “Boker Tov. About to go fly fishing. Wish me luck.”
Fake Amar’e didn’t miss a beat, tweeting back: “Hope to catch a gefilte fish.”
