Oh. My. Cod.

Here's a quick and easy one from my friend Ariel. She's found some great signs for us in the past, and I'm always grateful to her for thinking of me. This is no exception! 

The sales tax on this receipt (not to mention all the English) shows us that it isn't from Israel, which is especially wonderful! Typos in other countries make me feel like Israel's typos aren't really so bad, considering :)

Thanks again, Ariel!

Way out!

It's almost Passover! Jews all over the world are getting ready for a week of unleavened items. Here at my house we've finally finished off all of the various  kinds of flour and things that contain flour, and we're almost ready to break out the matza!

But Rena, my very favorite vegan, was apparently ready a few weeks ago. She found this label and thoughtfully sent it to me. 

See? It says, "Out Flour!" Evidently she had a good head start, and has been using products that endorse banning flour use. Oh, wait, what's that? Ohh... I see. It's supposed to say *Oat* flour. My mistake :)

Thanks for thinking of me, Rena!

Naturally, I'm posting this to Lesley's meme, Signs, Signs. Have a great week, everyone! And a great Passover!

I don't want to go on and on about it, but...

I'm honored today to present you with a silly sign that was sent to me by a friend from way back, who only just recently moved to Israel! And she's already proving quite useful as a signage spy, too - whereas I'm generally located in the greater Jerusalem area, she's located way up North, in Teverya. What fun! I'm so happy to have a new correspondent - welcome aboard, Ester! And just look at what she found for us:

Ah... just lovely. After so many years of living here, and over three years blogging, I still can't help but giggle at this stuff! I erased the phone number, for fear that you might be tempted to call Jacob day and night... I know I am!

Oh, another noteworthy item - Dina found a fantastic sign in Tel Aviv recently - well worth checking out! If you haven't seen her blog before, take a look around - she's always got really interesting photos from the Jerusalem Hills and beyond!

And for those of you who haven't seen it, you *must* watch this entirely hilarious video, in honor of our (all too soon) upcoming Passover holiday! It's a look at what a modern, online Exodus from Egypt might look like, and it's just tremendously funny - enjoy!

Naturally I'm posting this to Lesley's fun meme, Signs, Signs! I'll see you there! Have a great week, everyone!
