John Welsh's "Yom Kippur Breakfast" was so good and up so fast that I almost stopped writing this one. But in the immortal words of Robert Berg "All jingles must be posted." So...

He was hungry when he first woke
Not to be coerced
Supposed to be fasting all day I guess
He coulda used a couple gulps of borscht
Not eating before temple today
No need for him to digest
He drove that car as fast as he could
From Jim Colemen, he’s the best

Then on came an offending ad
For Yom Kippur breakfast lox
I heard Tony say disgustedly
Don’t they got a guy named Katz
To do reviews?
Not shopping at Whole Foods

Yuppies buying 40 dollar pies
I heard they got free-range veal too
It may be all innuendo and lies
But Mr. Tony believes that its true
Not shopping at Whole Foods

Fantastic! To keep the Yom Kippur theme going I think this should be listed as a parody of a song by Robert Zimmerman...he's a nice Jewish boy after all.

Little known fact Jerry: "borscht" is a British colloquialism for "this is the only jingle Nigel could find in his inbox at 11:47 today." But I'll take it!
