Winner gets a free Nextbook Press book appropriate to his or her comment (if he or she emails me at [email protected] with his or her mailing address).

He’s won it before, but this week’s winner is Roy, who wrote last Friday (but after last week’s Comment of the Week), in the context of Alana Newhouse’s post defending the discussion of how Jewish women dress, “You say Bitul zman, I say Lululemon.” You should probably just go read the post, because it will take awhile to explain that joke but it’s very funny in context.

Roy gets a copy of A Fine Romance, David Lehman’s history of Jewish influence in musical theater, for that pun.
