Old Jewish Proverb

Old Jewish Proverb

Mouthfuls of moon dust
still taste like dust.

Why scrub the dishes, when
they can soak.

After a great flood, if you
are alive, you

should say, Well, it could have
been much worse.


  1. I like these.
    Were they adapted from real proverbs or did you bake them from scratch?

  2. I do love the proverbial feel of these stanzas!

  3. You rock...I had to laugh when I read this. In the movies there is always a certain type used to display jewish wisdom, the wise jewish man always saves the day with unsophisticated common sense lost to us all!!!

  4. So true. I wish I could think of one to add to your list. Here's one. "If I'd known I was going to live this long I would have taken better care of myself."

  5. Thanks, everyone!

    Shawnte....they are freshly baked :).
