10 Things We Loved About 2012

From Les Miz to anti-Semitic Elmo, the year’s top 10 most Tattler things—none of them (sadly) NSFW

1. The anti-Semitic Elmo that got arrested in Times Square this year

This story was so utterly amazing, and so in tune with my personal interests, that I wasn’t sure at first if I had dreamed it. (And this was only the first piece of tsuris for Elmo this year, but I’m not even going to go there, since that was my least-favorite story.) A maniac named Adam Sandler reciting what sounded like passages from Mein Kampf while dressed as everyone’s favorite red furry monster. Anti-Semitism, Muppets, a shady past in Cambodian rape porn, the unforgettable image of a cartoon character in handcuffs: It had everything. Congratulations, Other Adam Sandler: You are Tattler’s Man of the Year. May your memory be a blessing, wherever the hell you are.

Merry Les Miz-mas everyone, and here’s to 2013!

It’s “Les Mis.”

Les Misérables (pron.: /leɪ ˈmɪzərɑːb/ or /leɪ ˌmɪzəˈrɑːb/; French pronunciation: ​[le mizeˈʁablə]), colloquially known as Les Mis or Les Miz /leɪ ˈmɪz/…

Whatevs, you purists. This was a delightful and lol inspiring column! //sings Les Miz as she stands in line on Xmas day in frigging Utah with the goys//

Posted under my husband’s name accidental. Sorry. Sheryl Hussien Ginsberg

It’s French. No “z” in Les Misérables — only in the phonetics.
