The Times has a very Timesy article today about how developers want to re-brand the Catskills as a bucolic, outdoorsy, locavore/Brooklyn/whatever type of retreat, and erase the popular image of the upstate mountain range as a place where Jews went in the summer to eat lots of food, listen to second-rate comedians, and not be put in a corner.
But accompanying the piece are several photographs of the old, weird Catskills, including the one above, which was taken at Kutsher’s. How about a caption contest? Here are a few to get you started:
“Hey, I ordered my sausage circumcised!”
“Of course I know I’m wearing a ridiculous shirt!”
“Kutsher’s? I hardly know her!”
“I have rabies!”
Now your turn, in the comments.
