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. 😉

Free COVID-19 Cure

This sign was just too great. 


Advertisement with the little slips at the bottom to tear off. 

Free Cure for COVID-19.
Please take an information strip below

And what do the strips say:

Stay the F**K at home


I wonder why no one took any of the strips? LOL


Like every meaningful issue, we have people on both sides of the aisle fighting it out what is the right thing to do. 


And when it comes to life and liberty, passions certainly run high. 😉

Everything But The Kitchen Sink

Thought this was cute at Java Nation (BTW, they are a better Starbucks!).


A mini sink that says:

Everything But The Kitchen Sink


Truly, that sorts of like what they are since they sell coffee but also wine!  


How did we ever come up with this saying about kitchen sinks to begin with? 


Like would you ever make an offer on a property, and say:


 I’ll take it, but you keep the kitchen sink.


There must’ve been some pretty cruddy kitchen sinks along the way. 😉

Corona Matzah Man

So this is what happens when Coronavirus pandemic coincides with Passover. 


We get a Corona Matzah Man wearing his face mask so he doesn’t get sick, G-d forbid. 


Even as we get ready to celebrate the seder tonight and recall G-d’s mercifully delivering us from Egyptian servitude, we also can be certain that He will deliver us from this dreaded Coronavirus. 


G-d is all powerful and has a purpose for everything. 


Perhaps, we just needed a reminder of who was in charge not only on Passover, but all the year round. 😉
