Forget Adam Sandler
. Over the past few years, there has been a proliferation of Jewish take-offs of popular songs. The Fountainheads have produced Purim
and Pesach (Passover)
covers. The Maccabeats had a good amount of exposure with their Hanukkah
and put out a Purim
Of course, not
all of these songs are covers.

Ultimate Matzoh Balls
is a simple, quick (10 level, automatically advancing) Flash basketball game that may
help keep your mind off the lack of leavening in your diet this coming week.
And by "your" I mean "my".
The Yiddish exclamations for both the baskets and missed shots are worth the click.

Is Facebook chametz?
An interview with two rabbis about their Facebook group
, encouraging Jews to consider giving up Facebook for Passover next week
. While the word "chametz"
strictly refers only to leavened bread, which is prohibited during Passover, the group is inspired by a Chassidic interpretation that connects the leavening of bread to an "over-inflated sense of self."

Want the real "Real Thing", plenty of people know to look for the yellow cap and stock up on some passover
Coke. But unsanctioned by the corporation, Mexican Coke
is now showing up in the USA, in the old fashioned glass bottles.

Avadim Chayeinu: A BDSM Haggadah
In some way or another, all who celebrate Passover, end up writing their own Haggadahs. There are literally hundreds and hundreds of different ones to choose from. Tradition says: never forget that YOU were freed from the land of Egypt. The desire to tell one's own tale of liberation and free one's own voice has led to holocaust haggadahs
, gay and lesbian
haggadahs, secular humanist
haggadahs and now, a haggadah for those to whom the term "slave" has an altogether different meaning. (via boingboing.)
