The episode: “The Giant Spider Invasion,” ep. 810
The riff: Sagely observed by Mike as an unkempt country dude tries to split a rock apart by grabbing a hammer and chisel.
The riff: A mohel is a Jewish person trained in the rites of brit milah, also known as the bris. Specifically, he’s the guy who performs a circumcision on the young baby or child with a small knife. Many mohels are also rabbis.
Novelty factor: I recognized the riff, as many TV viewers of the 1990s would, because of the “Seinfeld” episode “The Bris,” which features an argumentative mohel. Judging from the pronunciation, though, I always assumed it would be spelled like “moil” or “moyl.”
