Jewish Mother

Now you can have a hilarious, bite-sized version of your own Jewish mother, trapped in your iPhone. With over 100 (and growing!) hysterical, guilt-ridden phrases, she’s everything you need to make your friends & family laugh.

She’s so smart, she’s got different phrases for men and women, and adjusts if you’re single or married. Like your own Jewish mother, she knows everything.

And this isn’t any amateur comedy. We’ve enlisted comedian Steve Hofstetter, star of “The King Davids of Comedy.” Steve writes humor for everything from the New York Times to Maxim, and you’ve seen him on everything from CBS’ “Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” to VH1’s “Countdown” to E!s “True Hollywood Story.”

So spend a dollar already and have a laugh. Don’t make your Jewish mother wait any longer. You know that’s not good for her.

from What is on iPhone blog:

Stereotypes are bad. No matter how you slice it stereotypes are just bad. They may be totally, completely, utterly true — but they’re still bad.

Except, of course, when they’re funny.

So I wasn’t going to spend a dollar on this application. I just wasn’t going to do it.  Sure, anyone who would name and app simply “Jewish Mother” deserves at least a moment’s recognition but I wasn’t about to spend a buck to buy an application that stereotypes Jewish mothers.

Then, last night,  my wife forwarded me some cartoons from her aunt.  A couple of them were really funny, including one in which Moses is standing on Mount Sinai holding two tablets and saying “No people,  you don’t get to pick one from each column”.

I figured it was a sign – what we call beshert – so I downloaded the application.
