Humor At Seder Catches Some Off Guard

Bald guy with matzah yarmulke. 

Sure, I mixed things up with the specialty headgear, but the real fun occurred when I read from a hagaddah co-written by Dave Barry. I didn't announce that "here was the humor" and it was fun to see the reactions on the faces as the comedy sank in. Such made the serious holiday, and the political mood in our house, a bit lighter.

For the record, readings at our Seder included excerpts from the J Street Haggadah, The New American Haggadah, and The 30-Minute Seder as well as Dave Barry's For This We Left Egypt?: A Passover Haggadah for Jews and Those Who Love Them
