Earlier this week I was greeted by a man at the gym. He wished me a happy Chanukah 5768. Mind you he pronounced it as if he we saying Charlie. So it was closer to Cha-Noo-Kah 5768. I wanted to ask him if it was related to Love Potion #9. Don’t ask me why, because I don’t know.
So now after having suffered the consequences of having consumed far too much brisket and having eaten too many latkes and sufganiyot I present you with your virtual Chanukah gift, Haveil Havalim #144.
Read and enjoy. Please feel free to promote this on your blog too. Remember if you don’t, you have to appear on this show.
