Can You Believe It?

The pastrami's cold I tell ya! The pastrami is cold! Oh how can this be; cold pastrami? What did I do to deserve cold pastrami? Even warm or hot pastrami would be almost too much to take considering how much I really don't like pastrami, but cold pastrami? The mind boggles; well, my mind boggles.

Have you ever had to deal with cold pastrami before? Am I taking this whole thing far to personally? Are there cultures out there where the giving of cold pastrami is considered among the highest of honors one can bestow upon another mortal being? Could small Pygmy tribes in western Australia offer cold pastrami to their gods in exchange for a good season's harvest? Do Pygmy's actually really live in Australia? Is saying “small Pygmy” redundant?

How am I supposed to sleep exactly now with all these questions piled on my mind, never mind this possible “cold pastrami affront?"

I wonder if pastrami is like Gazpacho soup and I am making a big deal over nothing. Boy would I feel foolish if I posted something that stupid. Or is it "I would feel stupid posting something that foolish?" Either way, glad I didn't do it.

Sorry buddy the goyim just ain't gonna get this. Well, maybe not. Iffin ya serve me a cold pastrami make sure ya add insult by forgetting the mustard.
Me wants me pastrami piping hot sittin next to a an order of Matzoh brei.
A bialy could hold a serving of the sumptuous meat in the mornings, but Me thinks that a good rye bread would do better. Let the sturgeon sit on the little round muffin.
This be the comment section me friend and Me has been a long time and far away from the smell of gefilte fish and red horseradish.
Stay stompy...שלום־עליכם

Ear to ear grin from that comment my friend. I could mail you some gefilte fish. They have to have at least one Jew in Japan. Even if not, there has to be a deli.

Again, I've nothing to add, except it's way cool Monster got the Yiddish characters into his comment. Way cool.

Why do I feel like I'm losing my birdie? If it makes you feel better, I am not sure what this post really means either.
