first of all, ewww! secondly, p!ss-poor aramaic...
"Spiritual wants and instincts are as various in the human family as are physical appetites, complexions, and features, and a man is only at his best, morally, when he is equipped with the religious garment whose color and shape and size most nicely accommodate themselves to the spiritual complexion, angularities, and stature of the individual who wears it."

"The despotism of heaven is the one absolutely perfect government. An earthly despotism would be the absolutely perfect earthly government, if the conditions were the same; namely, the despot the perfectest individual of the human race, and his lease of life perpetual. But as a perishable perfect man must die, and leave his despotism in the hands of an imperfect successor, an earthly despotism is not merely a bad form of government, it is the worst form that is possible."

i don't think so. if they had done a better job on the dialogue, maybe. but it's just using simple aramaic to say dirty things - not that funny. (besides the fact that they can't even stick to their basic aramaic - in the first few seconds, chiyucha al panecha? should be al apach, or, if you want to get technical, ilavei apaych)

Israelis can't help but be vulgar, and the writer must have left the yeshiva quite a while ago, the concept is good though.
