HAPPY PURIM!

I just realized it's one of my favorite holidays today! Good Friday! (No, Kidding.)

Coincidentally, it's also PURIM!

Everybody, sing!

Oh, once there was a wicked, wicked man
And Haman was his name sir,
He would have murdered all the Jews,
Though they were not to blame sir

CHORUS:
Oh today, we'll merry, merry be
Oh today, we'll merry, merry be
Oh today, we'll merry, merry be
And nosh some hamentaschen

And Esther was the lovely queen
Of King Ahasuerus,
When Haman said he'd kill us all,
Oh my how he did scare us

CHORUS

But Mordecai her cousin bold,
Said what a dreadful chutzpah,
If guns were but invented now
This Haman I would shoot sir

CHORUS

When Esther speaking to the King
Of Haman's plot made mention,
"Ha, ha" said he, " Oh no he won't.
I'll spoil his bad intention."

CHORUS

The guest of honor he shall be
This clever Mr. Smarty.
And high above us he shall swing,
At a little hanging party.

CHORUS

Of all his cruel and unkind ways,
This little joke did cure him,
And don't forget we owe him thanks,
for this jolly feast of Purim.

CHORUS

Nothing as heartwarming as a children's song, about hanging people!

DRINK UP! Spin yer groggers and stomp your feet!

Just stopped by to see if The New Order had dropped in to piddle some hatred here, but I see he hasn't. Pity. Loud confessions of hatred and ignorance aren't often as amusing as his were. Happy holidays!

Squat - I keep checking also. He hasn't. I echo your sentiments - pity. OH well!

RT - I KNOW! Maybe I'll bring my friend Annhy some Hamentaschen from Epicure tonight as a birthday present...

Great post, makes me hungry, even for a prune one.
And your 1st comment on Obalesque was one of the funniest things I've read in a long long time...
