In the month of Decemeber, Christmas has seen no shortage of the silly, the adorable, the lazy, the troubling, and the meaningful. Sadly, the Jewish tradition of Hanukkah, aka
Eight Crazy Nights the Festival of Lights, hasn’t received much love this season.
There’s nothing wrong with that. Hanukkah is the Boston to Christmas’ New York. Smaller, different, slightly better in some regards. Hanukkah is comfortable with itself to let Christmas get showered with all the love and publicity. To help kick-off the Jewish holiday on Wednesday night, Conan O’Brien unveiled the nightmare fuel known as the Human Centipede Menorah.
We’re not sure what’s more frightening: the concept or that nine grown men agreed to have their heads stuck to the buttocks of another dressed in a outfit befitting of The Gimp.
