This Could Only Happen To Me



Everybody comfy? Because do I have a story for you.

Regular readers know about MADOF. And we all know how how hard it is to maintain a certain level of said MADOF. Last week there was an email just sitting there in my inbox. I avoided it, thought it was spam or a virus, I don't know. Imagine my surprise when I opened it and saw this...

hi - this is jon madof. i do a 'google alert' on my last name (i'm a musician in nyc) and your posting about 'MADOF' just came up.i must say out of all the interesting hits i've gotten on my last name, yours, um, takes the cake.thanks for giving me a good laugh!

all the best,
jon madof
new york city

Did you read that?

Jon Madof.
MADOF.
JON. MADOF.
MADOF. JON.
Oh Shit!

Spelled the same way and everything. There is a Madof living in New York City. A name I have used as an acronym to describe fuckability and maintain a standard of beauty.

'Oh Snap!' is the only thing that came to my mind, then followed by lots of laughter. It was a mixture of embarrassed, excited, and a healthy dash of mortified. So I went to check out all his links. Come to find out he's a musician which is even stranger because I feel music and food have always gone together. In my own little world this makes sense. A musician with the name Madof finds a cooking blog that regularly invokes his name. His name is an acronym about sexuality which also in my mind also goes with food. So it's kismet that we met! I emailed Jon back, told him I was embarrassed but thrilled and shamelessly asked if can I write about this and link to you blah, blah, blah. And Jon said yes. and also said this 'plus, when people can't remember that my name has only one 'f' at the end, i'll recite the mantra for them. they probably won't forget it after that.' Nope, no one is ever going to forget his name ever again. So dear readers, I am pleased to present Jon Madof. All around good guy with a great sense of humor and a great musician to boot! He is officially an honorary sous chef. I don't keep a kosher kitchen but we'll work on that!

Madof is one cool dude! And Jon Madof is totally madof. (Because how sad would it be if he wasn't? Kind of like the fat kid with the last name Small.)

Isn't the universe a magical place?

This made me smile. Always good at the end of a workday. And I'll check his stuff out, so good for him too.

Thanks.

Typing in my last name and finding that post would have been one of the greatest days of my life. Glad Madof has a great sense of humor. Though, with an acronym like that how could you not laugh?

Priceless.

Julia said...

And it's truly fitting that the guitar case in his hand looked slightly phallic from the angle the picture was taken.

Ellyn said...

Funny. I agree with Julia about the plallicness of the guitar.

OMG that is hilarious! What were the chances of that...obviously it was beshart..or beshert or...gee my yiddish sucks but it means meant to be.

She Who said...

What a hoot! Must have really madof your day.

Mental P Mama said...

This is the bestest thing ever. Seriously;)

Who knew there was a Jewish Power Trio?
I love this Krysta! Thanks for spreading the MADOF around!

melissa said...

Very cool indeed.

giz said...

Krysta, that's gotta be one of the most hysterical things I've read in a while. So now you're entirely exposed as is Jon Madof - now your mission is to integrate your sensibility with his audience appeal and you've got a license to print money.

Kristy - Where's My Damn Answer said...

ok that's funny ... it's also a crack up how the guitar case is situated on the first photo.

jack's utter lack of surprise said...

oops!

Familia said...

that is hilarious!

Jody said...

Krysta...you made my tea come out my nose...
:)
MOST EXCELLENT.
And I'm with asthmagirl - who knew there was a Jewish Power Trio???

You never heard of Kinky Friedman and the Texas Jewboys?

I don't know if it is Brooklyn or not, but it sure looks like my old neighborhood Park Slope.
