After eight days of eating matzoth for Passover, it feels more like UNLEAVENED or twelve days. I stopped a fellow on the street and asked him, "SEDER, do you know the meaning of this holiday?"

He said he did, MAWROR less: "Isn't that the spring holiday that celebrates how CHAROSETH three days after dying?"

"Wrong religion!" I retorted. "You don't have to CHALLAH!" he complained. "Challah isn't Pesadich," I laughed.

"Of KOSHER right," he acknowledged. Then he apologized for cutting me short but said his cousin Effie was on her way to his house and he didn't want to miss her.

"Of course--you have to leave with EFFIE COMIN' over."

"Sorry but HAGGADAH go," he repeated, and left.
