    Funny thing is she was actually Jah properly in English ...Hallelujah. Hallelujah (Hebrew: ื”ืœืœื•ื™ื”โ€Ž, Hallalu-yah) is a Hebrew word meaning "Praise ye, Yah", translated using Hebrew's plural imperative form of you (in English being "ye") and the shortened form of Yahweh in Hebrew "Yah" ("Praise you, Jehovah"). How many people knew they were using Jehovahโ€™s name whenever they say Hallelujah?

    Leonard Cohen's masterpiece made into a comedy skit? There was nothing funny about this whatsoever. To add insult to injury, it was the one year anniversary of Cohen's death last month - and Canadians in Montreal honoured him with a huge art installation of his likeness on a building in his hometown. Using one of those most beautiful love songs ever written as a humorous cure for turbulent times? Clearly the writers don't have a clue as to the true meaning of the word 'Hallelujah' or they would understand how disrespectful this skit really was. Such a lack of class.

    I know it ment to be a joke but I dont find it funny. Hallelujah is a very sacred word that exist way throughout human history. One of the few words that still exist from one of the orginal language of mankind. Its meaning is similar to creation and being thankful for creation. Its kind of like a insult to me and the beginning they spoke about painful times. Making fun with a sacred like hallelujah that mean to love life and be thanksful to creation kinda just got to me in a wrong way. I love Jame humor but this just made me feel even worst about our times we live in.
