Twaddle of the First Degree

cut-outs 032In their spare time, my kids have been keeping themselves endlessly and ridiculously amused with these Mr. & Mrs. Potato Head Cut-Outs that I created for Gavriel Zev.  Turns out Naomi likes them, too, because she can make “Mrs. P.” as fancy and colourful as she likes.

So I decided to share it as a printable, even though it’s made up of bits and pieces scavenged from all over the Internet.  If any of these graphics belong to you, I apologize, but assure you that I am not making the least bit of profit or even having much fun making them available to my admiring public.  Just trying to spread the paper-wastin’ love…

There are three pages:  one with the potato “body shape” outline, one with generic / “Mr.” parts, and one with “Mrs.”parts. 

If your kids request something else – a party hat or beard or whatever, just Google it and print one out that’s about the right size!  Gavriel Zev has actually been having a great time pasting socks from the sock-match activity that goes with the poem “Diddle, Diddle, Dumpling” in Literature Pockets: Nursery Rhymes.

Ancient Auction Secret: If Chinese auctions are racist, why do Jews love them so much?

Ah, Jews, Jews, Jews, Jews.  You sure do love your Chinese auctions, don’t you? It seems that even in an era of political correctness, within certain circles, this term just will not die . And frankly, I’m mortified. I’m not Chinese, but I have family who is Chinese.  Some are Korean, as well.  I guess this makes us more ethnically diverse than many Jews, but I suspect most Jewish families are moving in this direction.  Still.  Even if we don’t know a single Chinese person, we should still stop calling it that. First of all… is it actually racist to call it a Chinese auction? I figured I’d let Chinese people decide.  But when I turned to Google to find out how Chinese people feel about Chinese auctions, what I found was mostly… nothing.  Silence.  I did find some debate (presumably among non-Chinese people) over whether it was too far in the direction of political correctness to refer to these as a “silent auction” or (as in some parts of the States) a “tricky tray.”  (Ok
