Fetch My Coat of Many Colours, Today I am a Man
Shmuelly comes out of the gate HOT with the reveal that he had a Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat themed bar mitzvah.
As promised on the pod, here is the indelible pic of Nicki Minaj at the bar mitzvah.
NOTE: We recorded this ep BEFORE Nicki tweeted about her cousin's finance's giant nutt sack, in case you wondered way we would have not mentioned that, for some reason.
Did you ever have a memorable themed event as a kid? Trust we wanna hear about it.
Adjusting to Canada
As the oldest of the Marmorstein kids, Shmuel was in 3rd grade when the family immigrated from Israel to Canad and he shared a bit about the cultural differences and the adjustments he had to make.
"One thing that was really difference about growing up in Israel and growing up in Canada - I think in Israel you're supposed to speak your mind at all times, you're supposed to always say what's on your mind, and I really learned in Canada you're supposed to hide everything behind a vast and complex web of manners."
