For those who are not of the tribe, Passover is a holiday that is filled with cholesterol and sugar. Dozens of eggs, pounds of butter, countless sacks of sugar and briskets till the cows come home (with onions and carrots) crowd Jewish tables from coast to coast.
I had chest pains just cooking the stuff. This is not to mention what it all does to your stomach.
In doctor’s offices across the land, Cardiologists and Gastroenterologists are dancing the jig and planning their next vacation… on us! Or our health insurance companies. This is sort of like how happy the dentists are right after halloween. I don’t think of it as shadenfruede, but more just a joy surrounding a surge in business, so to speak.
This is surely not a week to have one’s bloods done.
Another funny Passover anecdotes:
Me: Do chopped walnuts go bad?
Friend 1: No, they are a post-apocalyptic food
Friend 2: And I am sure the ancient Manschevitz wine that you are mixing in will kill any bacteria.
Ahhhh, the holidays. What could be more fun?
