Amy Winehouse Raps About Being Jewish

And smoking bacon

Print Email

Many of the good people of the internet are trashing Amy Winehouse’s rapping abilities, as demonstrated on a YouTube video of her jamming with some mates. But we respectfully disagree. This is punk rock, guys—it’s not a Grammy-winning performance, but it’s contagiously ecstatic (especially if you can deal with a little banshee-like shrieking). More saliently, it includes the following flow from Ms. Winehouse: “Oh, snap, I never knew, I never knew that, well, I’m a Jew/Well a Jew makin’/Anyway, if you can smoke bacon/Then I reckon that, um…”—at which point she changes the subject to the drumming prowess of her friend Zalon. If we’re following the logic correctly, what should fill in the lacuna at the end of that line is that, if you can smoke bacon, you can smoke crack. And if you’re a Jew who smokes bacon—really, what can’t you smoke?

Η εταιρεία ‘’ ALEXANDRIDIS ‘’ δραστηριοποιείται από το 1960 στο χώρο του επίπλου σπιτιού. Χειροποίητα έπιπλα σπιτιού υψηλής ποιότητας και αισθητικής κατασκευασμένα από έμπειρους τεχνίτες σε συνδυασμό με επιλεγμένα υλικά άριστης ποιότητας προσδίδουν ένα τέλειο αποτέλεσμα.

Τα τελευταία οκτώ χρονιά η εταιρία ‘’ ALΕXANDRIDIS ‘’ επεκτάθηκε και στα έπιπλα γραφείου με αποτέλεσμα οι διαχρονικές της δημιουργίες να καλύψουν τμήματα τόσο της Βουλής των Ελλήνων , όσο και του Υπουργείου Εθνικής Αμύνης καθώς και δημαρχείων , γραφείων περιφερειων αλλά και πολλών ελεύθερων επαγγελματιών.

Η έμπνευση , η συνέπεια , η έμφαση στον διακριτικό σχεδιασμό και ο σεβασμός στις επιθυμίες του πελάτη αποτελούν τη βάση για χειροποίητες δημιουργίες και ειδικές κατασκευές που δίνουν λύσεις , και εξοπλίζουν τόσο με έπιπλα σπιτιού τους ιδιωτικούς χώρους όσο και με έπιπλα γραφείου τους επαγγελματικούς χώρους.
