Just In Time For Passover! A Bag Of Plagues!

The Chosen People among us (Kidding! Kidding! You’re all beautiful chosen people to me) know that part of the Passover celebration involves reciting the 10 plagues that befell the land of Egypt while they held the Jews in captivity. Typically, Jews acknowledge the plagues during the Passover ceremony by reciting each one of the plagues (which are, for the record, blood, frogs, lice, flies, murrain, boils, hail, locusts, darkness and slaying of the first born) and pouring a little wine out for each one. Enter this helpful BAG OF PLAGUES, which offers plastic representations of  each plague instead. So when you’re like, “What’s murrain?” you can reach in the bag and see that it’s “a virus that affects cattle and eventually kills them.” Thanks bag of plagues!

But even if you’re NOT Jewish, a bag of plagues could be helpful. Pesky roomate? Drop some locusts on her bed. Annoying coworker? Leave a couple of gnats on her desk chair. They’ll get the picture real quick.

Don’t Passover Viagra

Passover is a spring time Jewish holiday that commemorates when my people sprung from slavery in Egypt by not allowing us to eat leavened bread products. In addition to being deprived of everything from delicious bagels to even the sprinkles on ice cream, devout tribe members have not been allowed to take Viagra since its introduction in 1998, on account of the little blue pill’s gelatin casing isn’t Kosher. Now, building pyramids sounds hard, but eight days without sex sounds really unfair! However, after a decade in the desert, there’s finally hope women will be screaming “Oh God!” through the holiday. Pfizer Pharmaceuticals in Israel is switching its gelatin-encasing recipe to keep the men Kosher for Passover. So while you’re not able to eat bread that rises, you will still able to get a rise out of your mensch. [BBC] Keep reading »
