- Down through the history of comedy, a comic Jewish
- accent has proved to be quite funny. However, over the
- years, this accent has slowly been disappearing in our
- American culture.
- However, the accent can still be heard among some
- aged Jewish men, of whom some now reside in rest homes.
- In this spot, No Rest At Schapiro's Rest Home, we
- thus have just cause to keep alive this comic Jewish
- accent, for the setting is a home for aged Jews.
- The spot features two old Jewish men, Murry Ginsburg
- and Jake Finkelstein, who always bicker for they have
- different personalities and constantly disagree with
- each other on their varying outlooks. Murry is liberal,
- critical and never content. Jake is conservative,
- satisfied and always has to question Murry on his differing
- Spot -Don't Call Me A Senior Citizen
- At their rest home, Murry Ginsburg was again complaining
- to his close friend, Jake Finkelstein, "To tell you
the truth, Jake,
- I'm gettin' sick and tired of bein' called a senior citizen.
It makes me
- feel so old. I vant to be called somethin' else."
- "So vot do ya vanna be called?" asked Jake.
- "Vell," answered Murry, "I've been thinkin'.
And I vould very much
- like to be addressed vit a term that fits my personality."
- "Fits your personality?" said Jack. "You vanna
be called a dirty
- old man?"
