Pimp My Ride, Zeke

While nodding off and listening to my brother-in-law chant the Maase Merkava early Shavu’ot morning, I thought that it would make one hell of a ‘Pimp My Ride’ episode. Isaiah 6 and Ezekiel 1 can be the ‘Before and After’ (Note: I've never actually seen the shw, just heard abut it).

That reminded me of what a friend pointed out – that the reason that this haftarah is read when it is ensures that anyone is too delirious to actually listen to it, thus maintaining its status as something esoteric.
