Moshe The Mischievous Mensch

MenschHave you met Moshe the Mensch? He’s like the Jewish answer to that fakakta elf.

PyroMenschHis official name is the Mensch On The Bench, and he comes with his own perch to prove it. No, he’s not lighting Sparkles’ hat on fire. He’s a Mensch, he would never do that. That’s just a weird angle.

Anyway Hanukkah came early this year and Moshe is getting shpilkes so he’s putting away his talit and kicking off his shoes. Things are about to get meshuga.

Like most old Jewish men, Moshe wanted to get things moving with the obvious joke.

MenschMileyIt should not even be that easy to make a little girl’s doll look like Miley Cyrus. What, it’s art, okay? And the song isn’t about that. Jeez.

ScarfaceMenschAfter living on a diet of potato pancakes and jelly donuts for weeks on end, Moshe is about to go effing Scarface on that bacon.

SoylentGreenJuiceAnd he’s washing it down with homemade green juice. SOYLENT GREEN JUICE. (obscure? why yes!)

StripDreidelMenschAin’t no party like a strip dreidel party, ’cause a strip dreidel party don’t stop until everyone is naked and covered in chocolate.

Ummmmmmm….Hey Morgan, what the heck is up with the Mensch?

Oh, I’m glad you asked that question! Every year around the Holidays my friend Jill from Baby Rabies does a little thing called Inappropriate Elf and I am jealous because I’m all over here trying to teach my child about Hanukkah. But then this year, Moshe the Mensch came into our lives and Jill and I thought…well, the Mensch deserves to have some fun too, don’t you think?

psychoelfThe elf does. At least, I’m pretty sure that’s what the gleam in his eye is telling us.

So, here’s the deal, if you’ve got a Mensch itching to get into some mischief, there just may be a Kindle Fire in it for you. I mean, there is definitely a kindle fire in it for ONE of you, courtesy of The Mench himself. Consider it a late Hanukkah gift.



So go ahead, read the rules, submit your Mensch photos below. I’ll pick the ten best and an illustrious panel of judges including my fellow bloggers Ilana Wiles of Mommy Shorts, Jennifer Fishkind of Princess Pinky Girl, Jamie Lynne Grumet of I Am Not The Babysitter, and Mrs. Inappropriate Elf herself Jill Krause of Baby Rabies, will pick the final winner, who will be announced on Christmas Day. [Update, winner will now be announced on December 29th.] Hooray! Go on and get mischievous with your bad selves!
