Fun With George and Laura
Two years ago, authors Ellis Weiner and Barbara Davilman made a splash with their book “Yiddish With Dick and Jane,” a romp through the world of WASP propriety peppered with zesty Yiddishisms. Now, in “Yiddish With George and Laura,” Weiner and Davilman have upped the ante. Their subject is no longer the generic American everyman, but the American family par excellence: the Bushes.
Meet George, an ex-shikker, and his shiksa wife, Laura. Watch as the two shep naches from daughters Jenna and Barbara. With all their krechtzing and kvetching, they come off looking just as meshugeh as any other family, emes.
