Since weirdness is L.A.’s chief export, it should surprise no one that some guy makes hundreds of dollars an hour as a t-shirt mohel – “artistically” cutting up t-shirts for overhyped fashion factory Ed Hardy.
I swear, I’ll never understand haute couture.

This is one where the results aren’t as much fun as the process.
So, if I cut snowflakes out of paper does that make me a “Snowflake Mohel”?.
Great piece! One of the more interesting things I have found upon moving here is the ubiquitous t-shirt culture, especially the cross-filled goth designs by Affliction and other co’s., and the blingy gold-tinged rock star styles (as well as combos of the two). Ground Zero of this culture for purchaser seems to be Melrose Ave. The t-shirts also show up on many reality tv shows, and no doubt are permeating towards Peoria as we speak.
Oh, and I love Frazgo’s comment!
P.S. I’m no expert, but I thought the word was pronounced “Moy-ell,” not “Mo-hell.” Anyone care to provide insight on that? And if you don’t know what the word means, there’s a certain “Seinfeld” episode that will set you straight.
Depends on whether you’re speaking Yiddish (moyel) or Hebrew (mohel).
Thanks Oren. Cool, I’m learning all kinds of things here!
Matt – you’re gonna quibble over pronunciation with the Jewish Journal?
