‪ד׳ טבת תשס״ז * 24 December 2006: National Pumpkin Pie Day/Christmas

Greetings.

Sorry about the template post that went out before this one. My computer is in a bad mood today.

Relevant to today’s quasi-holiday: The Wikipedia “Pumpkin pie” article.

Today’s news and commentary:Today’s weird things (I couldn’t chose just one) are “The Corporate Scrooge Contest Results” and “Protest or Celebrate?”, the latter which demonstrates that at least some Christians haven’t forgotten what their holiday is supposed to be about. Enjoy and share the weirdness.

It was Hanukkah and the tiny village was in fear of not having any
latkes because they had run out of flour.

Rudi, the rabbi, was called upon to help solve the problem.

He said, "don't worry, you can substitute matzo meal for the flour
and the latkes will be just as delicious!"

Sheila looks to her husband and says, "Mortey...you think it'll
work?" and Mortey says,

"of course! Everybody knows.........................

Rudolph, the Rab, knows grain dear!"
