Being funny on Instagram can get you somewhere. Take Fat Jew for example, who has used the platform to become a bonafide celebrity, as evidenced by the fact that the dude was on the cover of The New York Times Style Section yesterday. Next on the fast track of Instagram-to-real-Life absurdity relevance: Fuck Jerry, born Elliot Tebele.
Tabele is not necessarily a comedian by trade, but he is a master of hilarious curation. All day, he posts repurposed, manipulated content like memes and silly photos that makes us laugh hard, like this. Where he finds this stuff, no one really knows. Probably somewhere in the Dark Web.
Elliot is a Brooklyn native, with a serious love for Di Fara. That’s exactly why we hit him up for a Friday Fives, and he was kind enough to cooperate. Check out Elliot’s “Perfect For” picks, and if if you’re not already following the Fuck Jerry Insta feed, it’s time for you to get with the program.
Fuck jerry's "perfect for" picks
“Ah, the world renowned Di Fara pizza. I actually grew up in the neighborhood where Di Fara is located. I’ve been eating here forever and I make a consistent effort to go back. It’s run by Domenico DeMarco. The man is like 95, uses his bare hands and cooks every pie individually. Weird fucking hours and it takes forever. Highly recommend trying it before it’s too late :/ ”
“This classic NYC staple is one of my favorite Sunday brunch spots. The lox and eggs platter is damn good, though I always go into a food coma after eating it. Order the latkes - it will release your inner Jew.”
“‘OMG Look ! It’s Jared Leto! Should I say hi ? OMG OMG OMG it’s really him!’ Shut up. Everyone’s trying to be so fucking cool at the Bowery. I dislike the constant fawning over celebrities but generally love having a drink and eating in the hotel lobby. It’s convenient, well decorated, and there isn’t any music, which makes having good conversation pretty easy.”
“There’s a reason why the #avocadotoast hashtag is one of the most popular hashtags on Instagram.”
