Happy Blogiversary to me!

Here in TRLEOOB*, Isru Chag is not only the day we hold our breaths as we wait to discover which chametz utensils were irretrievably swallowed up into the pre-Pesach void as well as the annual kick-off of Gebrochts Week, but it also marks Our Shiputzim’s third Hebrew blogiversary. (Tomorrow is the secular date.)

In honor of this most auspicious occasion, here are some of the more amusing searches which led to this blog:

The Search Term

My Comments

denim of yehareg v'al ya'avor

Don’t you think that denim is a BIT informal for this sort of thing?

liver kaved

It’s not heavy. It’s my brother…

factors of 5771

For the record, the answer is: “199 and 29”.

heblish torah blessings

First came Mah Nishtanah. Next came the Megillah. And now - Birchot HaTorah??

let's pass that subject

Ah, yes! Heblish at its very best.

prayer for skinks

I’m sure that YZG can compose something suitable.

best chardal communities in israel

No doubt you’re referring to the ones which won the prestigious Chardal Community Championship?

mothers' day unseen for practicing bagrut

Not to be overly pedantic or anything, but actually, the correct spelling is “on-seen”.

is mock turtle soup kosher

As Alice said: “I don't even know what a Mock Turtle is.”

creative interpretation of sheva brachot

Yeah, I think you MAY have come to the wrong blog.

tuna tissue fire

Because nothing says, “I’m an Israeli now,” like using a tissue to prepare smoked tuna.

steps of pomelo tree dance

I won’t ask.

potato kugel name yiddish

Must… not… make… fun…

yom yerushalayim kugel recipe

After all, that’s what our great-grandparents in Europe traditionally ate on the 28th of Iyar…


Here’s to another year!
