Isn’t This Brand Just A Little Too Forward

Can’t believe they actually sell a brand of soap called: “Maybe You Touched Your Genitals Liquid Soap.”

And they have a hand sanitizer version too. 

This product’s naming, labeling, and marketing is over-the-top even for a spoof product.Β 

Ah, I think I’ll forever hold off on the handshaking even if there is an after-Covid.  πŸ˜‰

Mount Meron and Hating The “Baseless”

Please see my new article in The Times of Israel called, “Mount Meron and Hating The ‘Baseless.'”

We are all reeling from the devastating deaths of 45 Jews on Lag B’Omer at Mount Meron (and many others critically injured) from a stampede during the bonfire celebration near the grave of the holy Kabbalist, Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai. Last night, we were glued to the new as the body count kept going up. I couldn’t help thinking to myself that this is something that happens in the masses of people that gather in India or Saudi Arabia, not in the tiny State of Israel. But lo’ and behold, tragedy can strike anywhere, anytime. Life is completely tenuous!

So can we draw conclusions that in those days there was baseless hate and so too in our times. I think, while we don’t know G-d’s ways, certainly from experience and observation, we do know that there is not only baseless hate, but also plenty of “hate the baseless”.  And what I mean by that is that one type of Jew thinks they are better than another whose beliefs, faith, and observance we denigrate and deem baseless, without support and they without real merit…We are forever driven towards a “Better than thou” attitude and lifestyle. To the religious catcalls of “get out of our neighborhood slut” or the throwing of Shabbat rocks at passing cars. This all has got to stop!

Covid Ultimate Mr. Clean

Check out the ultimate Mr. CleanΒ .

Not as good looking as the muscular bald guy.

But I have a feeling this colorful character gets the job done.

I wonder if Mr. Clean was transformed into this guy after he took the vaccine!  

I had the first dose yesterday, and I’m feeling horrible today.

Hopefully, it will all be worth it. πŸ˜‰

The Sniffer Isn’t Working

Someone really had a premonition posting this sign before Covid!

The sign says simply:

Smell Me!!

The response to this now-a-days would be the person with Covid yelling back:

I can’t smell (or taste) anything!

Now frustrated, the other person replies:

But please, please smell me. 

Second person, tries and tries again:

Sniff, sniff–darn, the sniffer just isn’t working. 

Get out the smelling salts!

Six months later, I still can’t smell a skunk in the same room. 

What type of crazy pandemic is this!  πŸ˜‰

What’s With This Crazy World?

I don’t recognize this world. 

This world has gone to sleep. 

It’s not the world of life I used to know. 

Now fear and isolation pervade about.Β 

Things aren’t even what they seem or they seem to be what they aren’t. 

Everything is glossed over and black and white are easily substituted. 

There used to be a moral ground and a forward path. 

Now you have to have a stronger faith and inner conviction than ever before. 

To see the light at the end of the tunnel and hope it’s the light we all yearn for.  πŸ˜‰
