Profile: John Mayer


No, we do not have a Twitter account. We will NEVER have a Twitter account. Sorry, loyal fans. The website itself and the blog is more than enough. (Oh, right, someone made a fan page for us on Facebook... that might get updated one day, right?)

So yes, Mayer did reveal on Twitter that he is half Jewish. That link in the profile actually takes you to his tweet. As for the other "tweets"... they are ALL based on real emails we have received. Some are verbatim, some have been changed a small bit. All the names have been changed.

Mayer was suggested by Elizabeth from Columbus, OH, Adam from Bloomington, IN, Neen from Detroit, and Harry from New York.


  1. Quote from Mayer's Playboy interview...

    PLAYBOY: Is your heritage Jewish?

    MAYER: I’m half Jewish. People say, “Well, which side of your family is Jewish?” I say, “My dad’s.” And they always say it doesn’t count. But I will say I keep my pool at 92 degrees, so you do the math. I find myself relating to Judaism. One of my best friends is Jewish beyond all Jews—I went to my first Passover seder at his house—and I train in Krav Maga with a lot of Israelis.

    I don't understand the pool at 92 reference. Is this referring to the nebbish-y Jewish stereotype? JONJ, any thoughts?

  2. Well, according to his I'm Jewish tweet, he keeps it at 90. So which one is it, John?

    I think this might be a reference to Jews moving to warmer weather climates (Israel, FLORIDA, Arizona). See the Seinfeld episode when he goes to visit his parents in Florida and they have the heat on.
