Napoleon Dynamite is making its rounds on a second generation, and Napoleon fever hit our house ‘real bad.’ Since our kids saw the movie in July (and another dozen times since then), they’ve spouted out random lines pretty much nonstop. There was no question that Purim was going to be all about Napoleon.
There’s no lack of food in Napoleon Dynamite, but we aren’t too interested in a meal of deviled eggs or Fun Packs. Fear not, because we managed to come up with edible dishes that went along with our theme. Presenting Napoleon Dynamite meets Granoladox:
Not pictured is Summer Wheatley’s Sorbet.
And for our finale, we present: The Megillah, Featuring the Napoleon Dynamite Cast: Click here to read the script: Purim Spiel 5779
With lines like:
- Esther: Because for a limited time only glamour shots by Esther are 75% off.
- Mordechai: Listen, I hear that King Achash is updating his profile on Shush-Date—maybe you could send the palace a message advertising your glamour shots?
- Achash: Well, things are gettin’ pretty serious right now. I mean, we chat online for, like, two hours every day… so I guess you could say things are gettin’ pretty serious. I’m just really tryin’ to raise a few bucks right now so I can ask her to be my queen. Royal weddings cost so much.
- Grandma (from off-stage): Knock it off Mordecai and make yourself a dang quesadilla.
It’s a must-read for fans of the movie and the megillah.
There were also a few glamour shots by Deb
And an appearance from Rex Kwon Dog
And finally, we dance.
