Obama: A Professional Diagnosis

Tweet Ever since Barack Hussein Obama burst onto the national scene, Seraphic Secret has maintained that this ideologically rigid leftist is riddled with personal pathologies that, given the opportunity to metastize, will spell a decline of Americanism at home and abroad. And when American power and influence wane, the vacuum is rapidly colonized by the […]

Kirkus Reviews “How I Married Karen”

Tweet I’ve always been ambivalent about critics and their reviews of my work. I confess to being stung by bad reviews and, of course, elated by good ones. Remaining indifferent has never been an option. When one of my films gets slammed, I tell myself stuff like: “What do they know?” or “Hey, if they’re […]

Muslim Brotherhood Says Interim President Is A Jew, Secretly Backed By Israel…

Tweet A few days ago, when the mobs were gathering in Tahrir Square and the talking heads were all agog about another Arab Spring, I turned to Karen and said, “How long before these—ahem—freedom fighters, start raping women?” Karen shrugged, rolled her eyes. “How long before the Egyptians blame everything on the evil Jews?” I […]

How I Married Karen Thirty-Six Years Ago Today

Tweet Today is our 36th wedding anniversary. But as readers of Seraphic Secret know, I have been helplessly, hopelessly in love with Karen ever since the fourth grade, when I first saw her on the playground of our elementary school, Yeshiva of Flatbush. Without Karen, I never would have accomplished very much in life. It […]

The Seraphic Secret Study of Fat Lesbians

Tweet Yesterday, Seraphic Secret reported that the Obama administration is going to spend $1.5 million tax dollars to find out why lesbians are fat. This is, after all, a burning social issue that demands attention by the federal government. Because we are concerned, patriotic citizens, Seraphic Secret has conducted its own study of fat lesbians—at […]

Ch-Ch-Changes, Plus Personal C-C-Confessions

Tweet Adam Corolla has a wonderful and important new video for Prager University about the amazing, and oh-so-necessary human capacity for change. First the video, and then a personal confession. Once upon a time I used to believe some pretty foolish things. Jewish, lower-middle class, born and bred in Brooklyn, my family were (and many […]

Jew Without a Gun

Tweet I am republishing my three-part series about the Los Angeles Riots of 1992 in which Karen and I and the children were trapped for several frightening hours. We were unarmed, helpless save for our wits. The police were conspicuously absent and the bad guys, frequently armed with heavy weapons, owned the streets. It was […]

Rabbi Meir Soloveichik’s RNC Invocation, Plus Happy Birthday, Karen

Friday Fashion: The Female Animal

Tweet In last week’s Friday Fashion post we observed that designers frequently clothe women utilizing fur, feathers and animal patterns. For as long as fashion has existed, animal metaphors have been an indispensible part of the designer’s lexicon. Hollywood, during its golden age, a leading arbiter of taste, heightened and refined the animal analogy with […]
