United-Continental Merger

First they started charging for the movies, but I never watched the movies, so I didn’t speak up.

Then they started charging for luggage, but I always travel carry-on, so I didn’t speak up.

But if they start charging more for Kosher meals now… I’m going to try to flee the country before it’s too late.  Unfortunately, I’ll probably wind up on a flight paying through my nose.  World you are cruel.  Cruel!

Two inefficient airlines do not make a flight.

Who’s Giving Us a Bad Name This Week: Sholom Rubashkin

Let’s look at the evidence against Mr. Rubashkin, a Kosher slaughterhouse manager in Iowa recently convicted of 86 federal financial crimes:

  1. He’s a Kosher slaughterhouse manager in Iowa. Believe you me, we understand trying to exploit an under-served market.  But if you need to turn to crime to make a living, you may have misjudged the demand in the first place.
  2. A large number of lawyers are rallying to his side. Since he hasn’t been involved in a slip-and-fall accident, this is a sure sign he’s going to hell.
  3. He’s trading on his autistic son for sympathy. Only marginally better than trading him for a New York strip.

Trayf of the Week: Schnitzel the Boar

How Biblical...

The only thing less Kosher than eating a pig is lying down with one.

But apparently man’s best friend doesn’t care.

If it were any cuter… it would still be verboten.

The Persecution of Doddering, Old Men

Not in the Bar Mitzvah album

Look, everyone’s zayde gets confused now and then.

He calls you by your father’s name, he mixes up the milchig and the fleishig plates, he breaks into a bank because he thinks it’s his home…

Such things happen.  We try to hide it from bubbeh.

We don’t call the cops.

Their feet might not be hooved, but I’m pretty sure they’re cloven.
