could be retro
within its own blog?
then today's books are so
This book I know has been on
my parents' bookshelves for years.
I remember seeing it growing up.
I don't think I ever
played any of the games
tried any of the puzzles,
Maybe even back then
I realized that the lack of commas
I've never been big on proverbs.
When I do think of them,
I think of that scene from Amelie
where the other waitress quizzes
the guy Amelie is love with.
Given the nature of Yiddish proverbs,
that scene would have probably been
a lot funnier
had the writers used this book
as source material.
Sometimes my personality conflicts with itself.
so I'm mildly amused by this cover.
But I also have some
Graphic Designer in me,
and that part of me
is screaming desperately for white space.
I wonder how many goys
find themselves urgently needing
a guide to Jewish expressions.
Imagine someone pulling this book out
at a bar
and using it like a translation dictionary.
How very odd that would be.
Insult books are always amusing.
