And the answer is...

Though Passover is still more than two weeks away, here in Israel the advertisements for Pesach sales are everywhere; and people are already wishing each other a happy holiday.

Pesach is coming. And Pesach is the holiday wherein all children get to ask the big questions weighing on their mind... like "What makes this holiday so damned important that we can only eat crackers" and "Where the hell is the afikoman". But there's one other question that is so momentous that even children are wary to ask it. And what is that question... the question that is bound to be added to all haggadahs everywhere sometime in the near future? That question is: "What makes a fish gefilte... There are many fish in the sea - or so my parents tell me - but I've never encountered a gefilte fish, so what makes a fish gefilte?"

Unfortunately, the answer is not so funny, but that's par for the course on Pesach. See:

A happy Spring to you all.

Trump's last tweet

Why are they torturing the Donald with three setbacks in just one day?!
  • Strike 2 on his attempted Muslim ban
  • Scoffs by Republicans regarding his allegation of being wiretapped
  • Round rejection of Trumpian populism by the Dutch electorate
Perhaps Donald should swipe a line from Tricky Dicky's last press conference, taking one last, pouty jab at the media: "You won't have Trump to kick around any more, because this will be my last tweet."
