FUNNY TYPO

Sorry, Jewish Week. But I gotta bust you for this--not because it's wrong, but because it's funny.

I just got my weekly email from the NY Jewish Week, highlighting this week's articles...The sidebar of what's inside this issue reports the following--let's see if you can spot the error:

...theater critic Ted Merwin says that not even Jason Biggs and Molly Greenwald can save "Modern Orthodox," a new Off Broadway show...

That's right! Molly GREENwald. Can we say Freudian slip?

Maybe this is a unique way for the artist formerly known as Ringwald to proclaim her affinity for Judaism? And perhaps we'll need to "Judaize" her body of work, just as Ted Turner famously colorized black and white films?

The Breakfast Zhlub--In which no one talks to Anthony Michael Hall because he forgot to bring the lox to that famous morning in detention.

Twelve Candles--Her parents forgot her Bat Mitzvah! Jake Ryan's like the coolest guy in yeshiva, and he won't even talk to her in Chumash class, even after she made him a yarmulke! To top it all off, even Long Duk Dong knows her bat mitzvah portion better than she does.

I wish I could come up with a Judaized version of Pretty in Pink, but my creativity is failing me at the moment...any suggestions?
