Knesset Resolution Passed: Waffle Week Starts Today!

Knesset Resolution Passed:
Waffle Week Starts Today!

After months of painstaking legislative lobbying, Prof. Ben-Chorin's hard work has finally paid off; in a landmark Knesset vote today, National Waffle Week has been declared in Israel, STARTING TODAY!

Though Shas MKs were against the law (and voted against it because they favored their own bill, "National Pancake Day"), the Knesset came through and voted 72-19 in favor of Waffle Week!

Instead of the silly customs that are associated with Israeli Independence Day, i.e., plastic whistle hammers, spraying white foam over innocent passerbyers, etc., Waffle day involves 100% Waffles!

Send your waffle blog posts, pictures or videos of yourself wearing waffle apparel, eating waffles, or being seen at an official Waffle House, and we'll post it here. Write a creative waffle posting, involving waffles and Israel, and you COULD be a winner!

Winning entires may be eligible for a waffle breakfasts, AT THE MUQATA! (Fine Print: Unless of course, you spell your first name with a "q" in it).

Examples of fine apparel include:

In an attempt to keep this appreciation week entertaining, this celebration is EVEN open to registered members (in good standing) of the National Waffle Association! So go out, write a post about waffles, go find some waffle apparel, eat some nutritious and sumptuous waffles, and let us know! Celebrate Israel @ 60 in style; and shows us your spirit of Eretz Yisrael with or without the syrup.

Wherever I am, my blog turns towards Eretz Yisrael טובה הארץ מאד מאד

I'll eat to that!

That waffle shack is clearly an illegal outpost. How many Arab olive trees did you cut down to build that hideous insult to the peace process.

By order of the pancake minister it must be removed within 24 hours or we will have no choice but to send in the syrup brigade and evict you!

Be that as it may, I am still doing pancakes this Friday.

Just chalk it up to that fine old Israeli "the law is optional" world-view. :)

The entire JBlogosphere has seen you taunt me about the waffles you seem to give everyone but ME.

JBloggers around the Universe have also witnessed you totally ignore me about this.

I hope you're proud of yourself.

I haven't had waffles since I was in the states, and that's a long time ago.

I'll stick to eating pizza with za'atar.

yum... send me some?

Gee a Moron said...

Send some to the Israeli government. They lead the pack.

Oops... me and my bad eyes. I thought it said National Waffler Association.

The Jake and Jackie radio on the short lived FreeFM NYC (KROCK)radio station also had a thing about waffles.

They even wrote a song and one of the listeners added the animation.

"Do You Like Waffles?" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XGu9yxdbFio&feature=related (warning the song is addicting).

Saw this only now - GMail thought it a funny 1st of April prank to put your message in the spam folder.

Anyways - yummy! But typical of the Zionists to propagate chometz so near to Pessach, and to thoughtlessly incorporate crosses all over the pancakes.
