A Purim Mashup

Oy!  Can you believe what they are doing to Purim these days?

I remember what my Aunt Mildred used to say – Keep it Simple, you Nincompoop!

And suddenly we have Jewish Toys coming to life to battle an Angry Bird.  I mean, I know that the bird has three corners and Haman’s hat had three corners.  I am sure there is deep Jewish symbolism here somewhere, but I’m missing it.

What did you say, Sonny?  You wanted Frozen to be the Purim theme?  Well I wanted to sit around and watch a cat video re-enactment of the Purim story, and all they gave me was a Lion as King – some Simboshverosh or something.  Let it Go already.

Anyways, I think I heard that Elsa was going be cast as Vashti, or maybe it was another Princess who was queen.

As long as they don’t re-use those storm-trooper costumes from last year I’ll bring my grandkids.  They do like that fishing game at the carnival.  And I hear there is a HABSTY Murder Mystery starting at noon for Grade 3+.  As King Simboshverosh would say, have a Happy Purrrrrrim!  Or, as we say in my family, Oy!
