The Octopus Messiah

Anyone see Last Comic Standing this summer? Because if you did, you probably caught the incredibly intelligent and funny Myq Kaplan blowing the minds of his audiences.

Well now, he is blowing my mind (and hopefully yours) with this animated version of one of his stand up routines. It makes watching stand up all the more exciting when you see Jesus running on water for exercise (watch the video and you’ll understand).

Luckily for us, Myq decided to animate a very Jewishly themed set, presumably with the hope that we would blog about it. In the routine, Myq explains why Jews are hoping that the Messiah comes as an octopus. Believe me, it’s worth a watch (though mildly offensive…meh).
