that “whose wedding is it anyway?” show that I was watching….

line of the week…

Groom: “I’m building a chubba…chuppa…chalupa!”

wedding planner: “Ok…first off, it’s prounced CHUPA, and you’re not even Jewish. The Jew in me is not going to allow you to call the thing I walk under a Chalupa. That’s a Taco Bell Issue!”

I fell off the couch and double turned the heel of my sock I was laughing so hard. It’s almost as good as the McShits.

And Beth- so you can see this disaster of hilarity, they’re reshowing it next week.

    Oh please tell me that the wedding planner did NOT use a hard CH sound so that it sounded like “chew-pah”, because the WASP in me knows it as a “Huppah” with that gutteral H like in “Hanukah/Chanukah/Hannukah” with a sort of short u sound like “khoop-paw'” – a bit like the oo sound in book, not so much like the short u in “up.” And, I’ve heard it more with a “puh” sound at the end so “khoop – pah” (but like book, not hoop).

    I can’t believe I jsut wrote an entire paragraph on Jewish phoenics.

    LOL! Al! Too funny!

    It was “Huppa” and not the other one.

    and as for Jewish Phonetics, I’ve ben told that I’m as Jewish as they come…and I’m Catholic!!!

    I will certainly vouch for you. . . you know a lot more about Judaism than some of the Jewish people that I know. So sad how many people probably missed the entire punch line of that show. Now I wonder when they are reshowing the episode. Hmmm. . . it will probably be on Passover during the Seder. Thanks for sharing Laura!
