HapPalmaḥ Street

Jewish date:  11 Tammuz 5772 (Parashath Balaq).

Today’s events:  Canada Day (Canada), Build A Scarecrow Day.


Continuing the series on the streets of Giv‘ath Shemu’el, today’s street of interest in HapPalmaḥ Street, which stretches all the way from where Dawidh Ben Guryon Street meets Yiṣḥaq Sadheh Street to the highway between Giv‘ath Shemu’el and Bene Beraq.  As usual, the descriptions are frequently inaccurate for the sake of fun and should not be taken seriously.

That is the highway right over there.  Technically HapPalmaḥ Street stops a block earlier, but this is close enough for jazz.  Though I could not see the ninjas hidden in this scene, the sound of the jazz music they were playing was clear enough.

Obligatory views down the street.

One of Giv‘ath Shemu’el’s famous haunted houses.  The ninjas once attempted to take control of this one, but the ghosts released a pack of rabid lawyers on them.  There are some things of which even ninjas are afraid.

Two non-conformist Smurf houses on someone’s porch.

“Hey, somebody stop!  We’re trying to hitch a ride to ’Elath for the ▶┌╭┹│◌ Festival!  ┠╱┺╮╺┌ is going to be performing, and you know no one can miss that!”

“Don’t mind me.  I’m just doing my morning pushups.  Everyone needs to get some exercise.”

Xerophytes silently watching, one of them mumbling something about “that foo-foo-headed photographer who’s seen Doctor Who”.  Another one complained that he/she hates ▶┌╭┹│◌ and jazz music.

A passageway which reportedly leads to Gallifrey.

“Don’t go to Gallifrey.  That passageway opens in the playground of one of their kindergartens.  All the kids threw mud at me, and I had to run away.”

Someone’s attempt at recreating the Hanging Gardens of Babylon.

Enjoy and share the weirdness.
