Hammy Hanukkah

Jones Soda has released a new series of limited-edition holiday soda flavors, available in Christmas and Hanukkah packs. The Hanukkah pack includes Latke Soda, Apple Sauce Soda, Chocolate Coins Soda and Jelly Doughnut Soda, while the Christmas pack includes such holiday favorites as Christmas Tree Soda, Egg Nog Soda, Sugar Plum Soda, and my favorite, Christmas Ham Soda! And the good news is it's all kosher, even the ham soda, so you can enjoy the refreshing taste of ham with no guilt! I might try mixing the Christmas Ham Soda with the Hanukkah Apple Sauce Soda so I can get a taste of Peter Brady's favorite "pork chops and apple sauce".

Thanks, Paul, for pointing out that our lovely friend, Leah Kauffman, the voice behind Obama Girl and the inspiration for Rosh Hashanah Girl, has a new parody music video out, Perfected, a response to political pundit Ann Coulter and her inflammatory comment that "Jews need to be perfected by becoming Christians."

Personally I don't think Coulter's comments were offensive at all. She was simply summarizing the underlying theme of "completist" religions, including Christianity. Still, the song is catchy and fun, and it's nice to see Kauffman in front of the camera as well as the microphone!
