Passover Funny Business
Haggadah parodies continue
Yesterday, in Tablet Magazine, Eddy Portnoy traced the history of Jews using the familiar, rigid structure of the Haggadah as a vehicle for parody. While Portnoy’s focus was on the Yiddish press of the late-19th and early-20th centuries, there are still Jews and there is still Passover and, therefore, there is still satire that borrows from the Passover book. Here are three examples that caught my eye in the past 24 hours. If anyone has seen more, do leave ‘em in the comments.

• Ten Jewish car writers on the ten automotive plagues. [VF]
• Eli Valley on what the Four Sons ask today. [Forward]
