Kolohe scored early points on this one. First thing I saw about it.

We uncles are the unsung heroes of family life. Without us civilization would fall.

Or at least fewer kids would have awesome stories.

The Hunter Biden squirtle pic is not particularly erotic, but it is hilarious.

The internet has informed me that "Hunter Biden Squirtle Sex Tape" is perfect TMNT scansion.

There was a recurring Henny Youngman bit, directed at either the show host or the roast subject, that went
Thank you, Milton/Ed/Alan etc. I'm going to Israel, when I'm there I'll have a tree uprooted in your honor.
Can someone explain that joke?

That's what I figured, I just never have come across it. Surprised it was significant enough Jewish-American mid 20th century tradition to be a punchline with no explanation for Gentile-included audiences. (and the internet doesn't have a ready explanation)

There's another punchline that goes 'kid, shut up and eat your cranberries' that the internet does explain (apparently a big carcinogen problem/scare that drew widespread public attention with some chemical they were using in cranberry bogs)

I don't know whether it was connected with memorializing the dead, but when I was young and Israel was still a new Jewish state, paying to plant trees "in the desert" was a thing routinely done among American Jews and as a result American Jewish comedians from the Borscht Belt era made in-jokes about it.

I guess maybe the goyish equivalent was those little boxes they handed out in school every year for kids to save pennies to give to UNICEF? *shrug*

Pretty sure this is correct. I can remember Jewish kids talking about giving money to plant trees in the desert as part of expanding and solidifying Israel. I even think you're right about it being an annual nickle and dime fundraising deal.

I know the 'plant trees to memorialize the dead' thing does happen, but I'm not sure if it applies in this case.

It's popular with environmentalists to have a tree planted on top of the dearly departed, but I don't know if its roots are Jewish.

I know there was a line of trees planted in England to memorialize Canadian pilots killed in the Battle of Britain. (There was a little foofahrah a few years back because the brits chopped them down to widen a road.)

So now the road has three lanes?
