Opinion & Society



It seems a group of leading medical people have published data that indicates that seder participants should NOT partake of both chopped liver and charoses. It is indicated that this combination can lead to Charoses of the Liver.

At our seder, we had whole wheat and bran matzoth, fortified with Metamucil. The brand name, of course, is "Let My People Go".

The Gay Synagogue - "Gay Avec"

Just before Rosh Hashanah, a man hears that in San Francisco there's a gay shul. He's very excited, as this sounds like what he's been yearning for. He gets there, and sure enough, there's a gay chazzan and a gay rabbi, and the congregation too is mostly gay.

He joins in the service, but is terribly distracted by the handsome young man sitting next to him. (There's really no good place to put a divider in a gay synagogue.) Finally, he gives into temptation and puts his hand on the young man's knee.

Immediately two large men wearing leather jackets under their tallises rush over, pick him up, carry him out of the sanctuary, and toss him down the stairs onto the street.

"Why did you do that?" he cried. "I thought this was a gay synagogue."

"It is," replied one of his ejectors, in a deep voice. "But nobody messes with the rebbitzen."

While in Israel I found a great buy on a computer. It is a kosher computer called a CompactSHALOM. Mine arrived today. If you or a friend are considering a kosher computer, you should know that there were some important upgrades and changes from the typical computer you are used to, such as:

* The "Start" button has been replaced with a "Let's go! I'm not getting any younger!" button.

* I hear "Hava Nagila" during startup.

* The cursor moves from right to left.

* It comes with two hard drives, one for fleyshedik [meat] business software and one for milchedik [dairy] games.

* Instead of getting a "General Protection Fault" error, my PC now gets "Ferklempt."

* The Chanukah screen savers include "Flying Dreidels."

* When disconnecting external devices from the back of my PC, I am instructed to Remove the cable from the PC's tuchus."

* The multimedia player has been renamed to "Nu, so play my music already!"

* Internet Explorer has a spinning "Star of David" in the upper right corner.

* Microsoft Office now includes "A little byte of this, and a little byte of that."

* When running Scandisk, it prompts with a "You want I should fix this?" message.

* When my PC is working extremely hard, I occasionally hear a loud "OY Gevalt!"

* There is a "monitor cleaning solution" from Manischewitz that advertises that it gets rid of the "schmutz und drek" on your monitor.

* After 20 minutes of no activity, my PC goes "Schloffen."

* Computer viruses can now be cured with matzo ball chicken soup.

* If you decide not to shut down the computer in the prescribed manner, the following message appears: "You should be ashamed of yourself."

* When Spellcheck finds an error, it prompts: "Is this the best you can do?"

* The PC shuts down automatically at sundown on Friday evenings.

Passover Cruise

The Pharaoh decided to go for a ride up the Nile. "Captain of the Guard!" he shouted. "Get eighty Jewish slaves for oarsmen!"

Two hours later, the Egyptian leader was sailing up the river. In the hold, the Jews were rowing at a wicked pace.

Lieberman, the slaves' wit, turned to the rower beside him. "Tell me," said Lieberman, "on a cruise like this, how much do you tip the whipper?"

The Plotnick Diamond

Two women are sitting next to each other on an airplane. One is in her twenties, the other in her fifties.

The younger woman says to the elder, "Excuse me, but I couldn't help notice that beautiful diamond ring you're wearing. It's just incredible."

The older woman replies, "Thank you. This is the famous 'Plotnick Diamond' you know."

"The Plotnick Diamond? I've never heard of it."

"Oh yes, it's very famous. The Plotnick Diamond."

"Well," says the younger woman, "it really is beautiful. I would give anything to have a diamond like that."

"NO! Don't even say that!" exclaims the older woman. "Believe me, darling, you do not want to own this diamond!"

"But why not?"

"Because there is a terrible curse attached to this diamond, that' why."

"A curse?" the younger woman asks.

"Yes, a curse. The terrible 'Plotnick Curse.' A curse so awful and horrible that I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy!"

"Well what kind of curse could possibly be so terrible?"

To which the older woman replies, lowering her voice slightly, "Mister Plotnick."
