Controversy, Yet Agreement

In these great times of strife and controversy in this country…

One thing that we can probably all agree on:

Make Falafel Not War

Words to live by.

And to eat by.  😉

Forgot To Bring Blood

So I go for some blood work today.


Lady pokes my arm, and nothing comes out. 


She moves the point of the needle around and around– still no blood. 

 

She says: “Hey, it’s your fault!”


I say: 

You’re right, no one told me that I was supposed to bring blood with me today. 


She looks up and says, “Okay let’s try the other arm!”


Then she spanks the arm…and I blurt out laughing, “hey do that again!”


Then poke, poke, and the blood easily fills a half dozen tubes.


She’s said, “You see that worked!”


I said:

I only brought blood in my right arm today!


If I could read her mind: “Ok, get the F*** out of the office.”


But she was nice and actually says, “You can get your results in about 3 days.”  😉

Just One Punch

This figurine is pretty funny to me.

It reminds of a childhood friend who was a fighter type.

Whenever somebody got on his nerves, he would bellow out in his machismo way:

I kill your whole family with one punch!

Honestly, it wasn’t all that scary a threat even as it echoed.

But it was comical when everyone else would mimic the saying at the slightest annoyance.

Kids are people too, wakadoo wakadoo!  😉

Shopping Up A Pole

Wondering if this is also part of social distancing. 


Shopping cart up a pole. 


No one else up there. 


Safe from Coronavirus, hopefully. 

 

Maybe some illusive toilet paper to be found in the sky mall? 


Desperate times calling for desperate measures or an anxious society is losing its mind. 😉

Keep The F*** Away From Me

Social distancing is the new norm.


Shaking hands is a no-no!


Even in the park yesterday, they had a sign prominently displayed that read:

Thank you for practicing social distancing. Please stay 6 FT apart.


We might as well all just wear t-shirts or little reminder signs on each of us with:

Keep the F*** away from me!


That about sums it up without putting up a specific distance range. 😉

Singing Frankie The Fish + Happy Engagement Day


At the fish counter at Seven Mile Market in Baltimore, they had Frankie the Fish singing away.

Give me that fish…if it were you in that sandwich you wouldn’t be laughing at all.



And most important today is I am singing because of a very happy day:



Thank you Hashem on the the engagement of Minna and Nafi!

Matzo Ball Soup For The Soul

It’s a pretty well-known Jewish tradition that Chicken Soup is almost like an cure all. 


Our moms for centuries have preached chicken soup whenever you didn’t feel well or felt like you may be coming down with something. 


Hmm…I wonder if it even works on Coronavirus. Heck, I’d try it for sure. LOL


From an alternative medicine perspective, like it says on the package:

It’s penicillin in a pot.


Anyway, I thought this package kit of matzo ball soup was pretty cute. 


With the old lady that looks like she’s about to fall in the soup saying:

Good. Not as good as mine. But good. 


Hey, I guess there is no package matzo ball soup that is going to be as good as homemade. 


Especially as I was taught that the magic ingredient is not chicken, but love!  😉

Reach Out And Grab Ya

This is a candleholder. 


But in a bizarre way it looks almost like a toilet. 


The place for the candle is the toilet!


Sort of would make a pretty scary toilet in real life if the back of it (ie. tank) has a body with arms that looks like it is reaching out to grab you as you take your royal seat. 

Hey, someone let me out of here!


Ok, I have definitely been shut in too many days due to this Coronavirus thing. 


I am imagining the world’s scariest toilets. 😉
