The Jumping Jews of Jerusalem

A recent post speculated that Jews might be deficient in sense of balance. Well, we’re big-hearted folk here in the Carolinas, and we don’t mind admitting it when we prove the French wrong…


On behalf of the Tour de France, we offer a heartfelt apology to Red Sea Pedestrians everywhere.

Standing upside down increases the blood flow to the brain. And one of the gentlemen in the audience is wearing a white cake-box on his head. He must have his reasons...

In America, loyal fans of the Green Bay Packers are known as 'cheeseheads', on account of the unmistakable head-gear they sport when their team plays. I'm sure the gentleman in the crowd must be a fervent admirer of the Jericho Carrot Cakes, a young, but promising Israeli basketball team aspiring to challenge Maccabi Tel Aviv's local domination of the sport.

I don't believe this story. I think it's a belated April Fool hoax.

GB, in your days with the circus, did you ever perform in Tel Aviv? It looks like the gentleman pictured is auditioning.

Cheers.

Never heard of the Cakeheads before. The Manhattan Cokeheads, yes, but Cakeheads no...

Desargues said...

That's because the Manhattan Cokeheads and the San Francisco Potheads steal all the spotlight these days, that's why. The Jericho Cakeheads can only aspire to a very distant fourth place, with the East Baltimore Crackheads coming in a close third.

BTW, Ivan. I was glad to see that the photo in your post came from the BBC. That's better than "googling" the phrase "inverted Jew."

Cheers.

You'd be surprised how often the phrase "inverted Jew" comes up in internet searches, Randall. That would make quite a googlewhack, wouldn't it?

I'm glad to see the gentleman is performing on nice safe matting. Do they make them out of matzo crumbs?
