There's another Passover parody you need to watch. This one from Six13 takes on our fave sitcom, The Big Bang Theory.

(And you know, Mayim Bialik is one of the characters, which makes it a million times more awesome). The tune expertly sums up pretty much the whole story of Passover in under 30 seconds —… >> Read More
