Rav Yiṣḥaq Herṣogh Street

Jewish date:  29 Tammuz 5772 (Parashath Maṭṭoth-Mas‘e).

Today’s event:  Ze’ev Zhabboṭinsqi Day (Israel).


Today’s installment of the series on Giv‘ath Shemu’el—the last until after the Fast of ’Av—is on Rav Yiṣḥaq Herṣogh Street, which stretches from Qadhesh Campain/“HashShaḥar” Street to Bar ’Ilan University.  As usual, captions may be inaccurate for your amusement, so, no, if you visit Giv‘ath Shemu’el, you will not be kidnapped by pirates and held for ransom.

One of our painted electrical boxes, depicting cypress trees.

Various little creatures gathered at a window to taunt me.

One of our playgrounds.

A giant frog at the playground.  He was surprised to see me and stressed out from paying his taxes.

A very happy giant beetle.

Ancient Egyptian Smurfs were here, and they built this very short obelisk.

A traffic circle right be Bar ’Ilan.

I was warned by these owls not to pollute.

“Pay attention!  Children on the road.”  “To pay attention” in Hebrew is expressed by an idiomatic expression which literally means “to put heart”, which is expressed graphically on this sign.

Oh, no!  Escaped convict Intefe robots, still in their prison uniforms.

No, ◳◳◳ and Salle did not take the house that was here.  The convict Intefe robots did it and tried to cover their tracks by planting grass.  The police caught them and threw them in prison.  The house reportedly is in Zeelandia, and the rightful owners are trying to have it shipped back.  In the meantime, the police are trying to recapture the escaped convicts.

Enjoy and share the weirdness.
