Thanksgiving is over, it’s time for Hanukkah!

Maybe at the end of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade when Santa comes out, he should stand next to a menorah? You know, I want representation. He can hold some plantains, too. What? What? I can dream!

In the meantime, my Twitter pal Jean Roth wrote some Hanukkah limericks using me as the inspiration:

Ms. Jewminicana lady said
“It’s the annual latkes I dread.”The point is the oil
Which potatoes just spoil
I’ll be frying my plantains instead!”

And when she found out that indeed, I did like latkes, she re-wrote it!

Ms. Jewminicana lady said”Something new for the Hanukkah spread!”
Since oil is what mattersWho cares what makes spatters?
I’ll be frying my plantains instead!”

Now did you know that you can make plantain latkes? Yeah, check it out. Thank you, Bureka Boy! Who gives you the goodies?

And if you like latkes as much as I do, you’ll probably want to enter the “Free Latkes Tee Give-Away” over at Rotem Gear. Jean is giving away three t-shirt shirts to three clever folks who sign up for her mailing list and then post their own little Hanukkah limmerick. Deadline is December 3rd, 2009 so get cracking on it!
