Are you ready for the lastest chapter in Dumb and Dumber, aka 'The thunder you hear is God laughing His head off. The rain you feel is God laughing so hard that tears are flowing from His eyes?

This morning at seven, as usual I phoned Bubbie Channah to see how she is and how was her night. We speak about a gazillion times a day.

Bubbie Channah is 83 tfu tfu tfu. Bubbie Channah runs to Hamashbir, the local department store/super market every day. Bubbie Channah goes to grab a hamburger at her local favourite hamburger joint every afternoon (yes my mother in her golden years is a junk food junkie...sigh). Except for those two daily excursions, Bubbie Channah can usually be found in her flat knitting or reading a book with the television set to Fox News.

Bubbie Channah knows everything. And in case you are wondering, she is rooting for Phil on American Idol...she loves the Sopranos...and plays the lottery twice a week.

Don't mess with Bubbie Channah.

So, why am I telling you all this? Here is our conversation this morning.

B.C.: Nu so did you see the news last night?
Me: No, I was visiting the babies and missed it.
B.C.: So you didn't see how Olmert looks like he didn't sleep all night? Actually it said that he didn't sleep all night.
Me: Of course he didn't sleep. The man has the skin of an elephant. What the hell does he think he's doing by hanging on? He didn't get elected. The only reason he's sitting in the chair is that Sharon became a latkeh.
B.C.: There's more.
Me: What more could there be?
B.C.: They can't call for early elections.
Me: They can't? Why not?
B.C: Because the President has to call for early elections and he's being tried for rape.
Me: Oy!
B.C.: And the acting president doesn't have the authority.
Me: (Laughing hysterically by now) Get the hell out of here! You've got to be kidding! Where did you hear that?
B.C.: On the English news.

Well, my friends. What can I tell you? We have a P.M. who is incompetent...and is being investigated for taking bribes and who knows what else...who can't be kicked out because the President has been relieved from his duties as he is being tried for rape.

Somebody is laughing His head off. And of course this is happening to us. Aren't we God's Chosen People? So who else would He choose to play a practical joke on? Oy.

You still think God doesn't have a sense of humour? Ask Mrs. Lot!

Have a great day...stay safe...thanks for dropping in.

Hey, I'm not stupid. I'm not messing with Bubbie Chanah, either.

Anyone who is YOUR mom must have the patience of Job, the wisdom of Shlomo, and the strength of ten thousand.

I ain't messin' with someone like THAT.

Of course, I don't hafta know her to know what an awesome and good person she is. (After all, I know one of her kids.)
