SoS Note – I apologize for not having a new post the past few weeks. Yesterday I had my internet turned on in my new place and before that, since I’ve moved, I had only been able to use the internet through my blackberry and my parents surprisingly terrible internet connection. I will not bore the blog with any moving stories, but rest assured that I am all moved in to my condo and I plan to resume updating Summer of Scott regularly. Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.
The Jewish holiday of Passover began Wednesday night, and as any Jew will tell you, that means that the Passover Constipation started Thursday morning. Passover, for all the gentiles (goy’s, if you will) reading this who do not know what passover is, is an eight day holiday celebrating the Jews being released from slavery in Eygpt by the evil Pharoh thousands of years ago. The story goes that the Jews, after being released, were baking bread to eat on their long walk from Eygpt to Jerusalem but during this time, the Pharoh changed his mind and so the Jews had to leave ahead of schedule, leaving their bread to not have enough time to rise. This unlevened bread became known as Matzah and is the main food that Jews eat during Passover (we are not allowed to eat anything with wheat, corn, flour and some other things that I can’t think of off of the top of my head). As you might expect, having a diet largely made up of glorified crackers with no fiber for eight days has its consequences, and I would like to discuss this a little bit on my public forum.
Funny because it's true
