HaṣṢiyyonuth Street

Jewish date:  15 Tammuz 5772 (Parashath Balaq).

Greetings.

Continuing the series on Giv‘ath Shemu’el, today’s street of interest is HaṣṢiyyonuth (Zionism) Street, which stretches from Dawidh Ben Guryon Street to Gush-‘Eṣyon Street.  As usual, the captions may be inaccurate for the sake of entertainment, so anything weird written below should be taken as nothing more than me making excuses for my lack of photography talents.


Creatively designed flowerpots.  Now plants can perch comfortably on ledges, and evildoers have fewer places they are safe from vicious attack plants.

A shopping cart full of small invisible cyborgized monsters.  (They come in a variety of sizes, including ones that live happily under beds.)

A weird alien plant, possibly from Mars.

A creatively shaped bush.  Many have been trained to attack unwelcome visitors.

The entrance to a playground.  Note that some of those trees are not really trees.  They are ents on a visit from Middle Earth, and some of them felt rather goofy and decided it would be fun to sneak up on me and cast inconvenient shadows when I was trying to take pictures.

One of our giant beetles at the playground.

One of our bears.  This one was a bit sleepy and went out for coffee afterwards.

Some of our friendly tortoises.

More of the playground.  The ents were getting goofy.

A riding crocodile.

“Yeah, this is a good place to cast shadows and ruin a picture of the swing set.”

A passageway to Middle Earth.

“Excuse me?  Invisible cyborgized monsters here, big ones.  We’re looking for ents.  We’re supposed to play volleyball with them about half an hour from now.”

The ents left some Pac-Man bait out.  They may be goofy, but they do have a sense of civic responsibility.

Enjoy and share the weirdness.
