Cycling In Multicolor

Something about this drawing at a local kosher restaurant really stood out. 

The weird cycle with the exaggerated extra big wheel in front.

The crazy looking skinny bodied person with long arms and legs and wild hair sitting on top.

The bright green, blue, orange, and yellow colors. 

It just made me laugh at the whole thing. 

It’s not exactly art, but it sort of is.  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˜‰

Flintstones Car(-Like)

Why do all the mechanic shops seem to have a car, like in this photo, lying around. 

Sort of reminds me of The Flintstones Car (from the TV Show originally aired in 60s).

No motor or anything; you would just stick your feet out the bottom and you would run while in the car. 

Stone Age answer to the need for an automobile. 

Hey whatever works and no need to recreate the wheel either.  πŸ˜‰

Row Row Row Your Boat

What an awesome Lego set. 

Row, row, row your boat gently down the stream. 

Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, life is but a dream.

Yarrr! Can definitely do without the pirate.

Throw him overboard, Arg! πŸ˜‰

Two Asses and A Horse

Thought this was an interesting saying that I heard:

Two asses can’t sit on one horse.

Maybe a less eloquent way of saying that two kings can’t sit on one throne!

But the imagery of the first one is funnier!Β  πŸ˜‰

How To Keep A Secret

This was a saying from the movie, The 2nd, that I liked:

Three people can keep a secret. 

When two are dead!

It’s similar to when you ask someone a question that they don’t want to answer and they say:

I can tell you, but then I’d have to kill you.  

Both of these make a lot of sense, LOL.  πŸ˜‰

There’s Someone For Everyone

Please see my new article in The Times of Israel called, “There’s Someone For Everyone.”

I’m sitting resting on Shabbat, minding my own business, and reading the Favorite Tales of Sholom Aleichem, but then my wife tells me a story circulating in the news that seemed like it could even be one better. At least my exaggerated version of it did as a tall tale in the making.

It starts like this: There is a woman who did not have a lot of luck with men…
