Well, Passover is a-comin, and for some, that means Spring cleaning. Spring cleaning may or may not involve spiffing up your home, which is why most large grocery stores have all sorts of linens, dishes, appliances, and other household stuff on sale now. Me, I was just looking for basic matza-type items.
Yes, my youngest daughter and I were shopping in Jerusalem this evening. We had just begun, when we found ourselves walking by the small appliances section. As I was explaining the potential fun of having a juicer, I suddenly spotted this:
Okay, kettle/kettel - mildly funny. Ridiculous that it wasn't proofed by someone who actually speaks English, but as far as blunders go, not tremendous. I know.
But that one was next to this one:
Ha! That one qualifies is my book as pretty funny - no questions asked. And so, I went on to continue my shopping, more relaxed than most people in the store, content in having captured some humor.
But then - just before we arrived at the dairy section, I happened across this one. It doesn't have any typos that I could find (aside from the random capitalization and hyphen, of course), but I think it's even funnier:
I probably should have bought this, come to think of it. Automatic health? Isn't that everyone's dream?
Happy Passover, everyone!
