As Always, Dry Bones is Relevant and Hilarious

For many years, the Jerusalem Post has published a cartoon called "Dry Bones" by Yaakov Kirschen. It always succeeds in being topical, relevant and HILARIOUS.

Today's cartoon is no exception. It revolves around a lesson that we read in the Haggadah; that "in every generation, an enemy rises up against us." Given what comes out of the mouth of the President of Iran on an almost daily basis, this seems to be true.

Kirschen says it best himself:

When Christian kids are little they are taught about the Easter Bunny who comes hippity hoping down Bunny Trail, bringing baskets of colorful Easter Eggs, and jolly Santa Claus,who slides down the chimney, bringing his sack of Christmas toys.
When we grow up, the Christians discover that their tales were charming deceptions, and the Jews discover that their childhood "fairytale" is indeed an historic truth.
