Okay, now that I’ve stuffed myself with two pizza/pasta dinners in a row, I caught up with some Colbert Report Passover humor that I missed because it aired while us Jews WERE AT SEDER!

Watch it, cause it rips on 10-plague toys, which I hate. I have hated them since their inception nearly 15 years ago when I reported about them in their newness for the NJ Jewish News (this was back when only two of the office computers had internet, and there was no office email. Dark times, I know.)
The reason we take wine out of our cup for each plague is that we understand that the Egyptian people suffered because of their leader’s stiff neck (hey Current Middle East, sound familiar?) and we don’t want our cup to overflow on that, we don’t want to drink to that suffering. So why would we play with their suffering? Ew. It’s just ew.
