“I’m Aiming Jewish Space Lasers”

I’m delighted to share my latest song parody not about Passover: “I’m Aiming Jewish Space Lasers,” set to the tune of “White Christmas.” The challenge was to write about a particular job, and I sought as well to comment on recent political news. I imagined what it might be like to have the job of aiming the Jewish space lasers — as concocted by Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene.


This song recently won an honorable mention in the “Style Invitational,” a long-running humor and wordplay contest that appears every Sunday in The Washington Post. I’ve been an enthusiastic participant in the “Style Invitational” for many years, and I’m proud to say that my song parodies have won prizes and honorable mentions in the contest 48 times.


You can listen to a recording of the song performed by my friend Janice Zucker here, at the bottom of the page. Enjoy!



I’m Aiming Jewish Space Lasers

(to “White Christmas” by Irving Berlin)


I’m aiming Jewish space lasers.

I make them bright and fast and hot.

I start work on Monday

And work through Sunday

(Though I don’t work on Shabbat).


I’m aiming Jewish space lasers.

I launch them from a trampoline.

When you see these words on your screen,

They’ll be coming from Ms. Taylor Greene.
