When you care enough to send the very best...

LMAO. Really...sometimes I think I went into the wrong profession.

The Princess has a Religion assignment. She has to turn in a "creative" project about Judaism. Among the choices, making a cookbook, a movie, a magazine, or 7 greeting cards depicting the seven Jewish holidays (Oy! Seven? Who knew? [Seriously...I didn't!]) That last one's what she picked.

I immediately came up with several ideas and the requisite artwork....I will only share the tamest/most PC ones here: 1) a Passover card that, when opened, squirts genuine lamb's blood on the recipient ("Just wanted to make sure the Angel of Death passes you by this year..."); and 2) One of those annoying musical cards that blasts out a tune by Rosh Hashannah Montana: "You get the best of both worlds! Two New Years to get plowed on! Mazel Tov!" (Vincenzo, master of Adobe...a little help?!?)

I will spare you (and your souls) the rest. But if you have any ideas, we're open! Nothing horrible or anti-Semitic - i.e., the ones I'm not posting had just slightly inappropriate PG-13ish humor that's not fodder for the blogosphere and/or the easily offended - rememberI have a few junior readers out there.

My opinion? Time to start home schooling. My email address is on my profile page if you wish to yell at me. :)

Squirting lamb's blood---heh heh

That's the kind of card I can see myself giving someone!

I love the Passover card with the lamb's blood, myself...

I almost had Packrat's reaction, but then I remembered that, according to the Church, we've basically got the fulfillment of Judaism. So it is appropriate for us to know something about it, even to the point of learning about it in a religion class at a purportedly Catholic high school.

If, however, they start covering the Bhagavad Gita, I will be convinced that Packrat was right.

Remember...you already quit your day job...homeschooling has already taken that economic toll...homeschooling the elder sister would just save you money, at this point. ;-)

PS - I didn't mean to imply that there is something wrong with learning about other religions, I just think that there is a much better way to go about it. And yes, your lamb's blood card is good. Rosh Hashannah Montana - how do you think of these things? :)
