Dedicated with Love to All Mothers of Boys

I absolutely loved this video. It sums up what it is like raising boys – just multiply by the number of young men under your care and enjoy!

Just A Reminder

Just a reminder…..

In the Spirit of Purim

Famous Jewish mothers….sort of…


How to Vote in Israel

My last post was about getting out the vote, and I came across this blog post with practical information about how to vote (polling places, procedures, etc.). Thanks to Rafi at LifeinIsrael for the link.

Meanwhile, why don’t you enjoy the second video about the “complaint police”. This time he appears in the coffee shop….interrupting the hipsters who have just come back from Berlin (of all places) and are of course, complaining….


Getting Out the Vote – With Jewish Humor

This is a great advertisement for getting out the vote here in Israel. An Israeli taxi driver is giving his vocal opinion about what is wrong in the country and is stopped by the “complaint police”. It seems that anyone who doesn’t vote is not allowed to complains for the next four years….. What I like best about it is that the ad is sponsored by the Knesset!


Yom Yavoh….The Day is Coming

Latma prepared a special song about the future – when building in Yehuda and Shomron (Judea and Samaria) is not condemned but accepted as our right. This version has English subtitles, with the comic section before the song. Enjoy!


The Disappearing Israeli Left

Political satire done well is a work of art. In Israel noone does it better than Latma.

Now that it is not popular to be left wing (a recent Israeli poll shows that over 50% of Israelis consider themselves right wing, and only about a quarter consider themselves left wing) many Israeli political parties are trying to pass themselves off as mercaz – “central” – even though they have not changed their views.

To point out this absurdity Latma has done a number of sketches about other places where the left has disappeared….



Dry Bones just about sums it up for me here about today’s date. The only significance that January 1st had for me is that I needed to start some new Excel sheets at work for financial information. Otherwise, it was a blessedly normal day here in Israel…

This Was Cute…

Many thanks to LifeinIsrael for his great videos. Here is one, with a Jewish twist to the news….Occupy Shabbat!

And Now For Something Completely Different

It’s been a slow blogging week, so I decided to share with you some of the more ridiculous humorous things I have come across lately.

First, you too can draw a picture of President Obama, using everyday things found in your own home.

Camel beauty contest anyone? (hat tip Elder of Zion) If this contest doesn’t thrill you, how about the best toilet in Britain?

I think they need to get a life over in Finland too, as they are notorious for their weird contests, including “wife carrying” (the winner gets his wife’s weight in beer!)

In Spain they run the world’s biggest food fight – using tomatoes (my mother would have smacked us silly if we threw food – it was one of her strict rules. So this one doesn’t appeal to me at all…)
