I’m not sure if spit takes were ever actually very common on television or if they became infamous without being ubiquitous. But I feel like they were common! I would find it hard to believe that I have seen so many by only watching what I happen to love. So my question is, where are they now?
They are a decent enough comedy tool, great if executed well. You’d have some trouble finding a cartoon without one, I think. But it’s more rare, or seems that way, to see a live human spraying their drink out in laughter.
My favorite thing about being culturally Jewish is being able to claim Larry David as one of the tribe. One of my other favorite things is Hanukkah.
Hanukkah is fun because, like other exciting holidays from around the world, it brings people together! Also, latkes. I’m a big fan of gift-giving, when the season calls for it. So, here is Sneer Campaign’s Hanukkah gift to you: a drawing of us.
Friends, light your candles and play dreidel if you’d like. But also make sure to give out some hugs, even if you hate being touched.
Happy Hanukkah, from Sneer Campaign.
