In Tripping The Rift: The Movie, when Whip is selecting a brain from the shelf (obviously mocking Mel Brook's Young Frankenstein), we see the following labels on the jars.

  1. Genius ~ Albert Einstein's Brain
  2. Senator ~ Diane Finestein's Brain
  3. Comedy ~ Mel Brookstein's Brain
  4. Broadway ~ Hearty Fiberstein's Brain

I get who first three are (who wouldn't get the first one?), but who is Hearty Fiberstein supposed to be mocking?

Sounds like a parody of Harvey Fierstein's name.

American actor and playwright, noted for the distinction of winning Tony Awards for both writing and originating the lead role in his long-running play Torch Song Trilogy, about a gay drag-performer and his quest for true love and family, as well as writing the award-winning book to the musical La Cage aux Folles. He has since become a champion for gay civil rights.

Here's a news story about him on Youtube.
