oy!


Today's photo was found by my ever-alert brother in law, Menashe. He found this label on a case of cigarettes in Jerusalem, but presumably it's the same all over:


Menashe thinks that perhaps it was translated from Yiddish:)

I have to assume that it's just a literal translation from Hebrew, but as we see once again, literal translations don't tend to be the most accurate ones...

Well, at least they put a scary label on - that's progress on a different front.

I'm wondering why your brother is buying cigarettes......

I wasn't buying cigarettes. I was walking outside of the Jerusalem Central Bus Station where a guy sells them on the sidewalk. Go have a look.
