“I usually ask for Halal first”
I bet that draws a blank pretty often. A lot more people know what kosher means than halal. Aren’t they just about the same thing?
“R.U. saying rabbi Lipschitz isn’t blessing each tidbit?”
I’m not sure exactly what the requirements are, but I seriously doubt that “rabbi Lipschitz isn’t blessing each tidbit?”
“everything… that comes from the ground or animal is “organic” anyway”
The terminology doesn’t make sense, but what is being referred to is food that is grown without the use of chemical fertilizer, plant hormones, pesticides or herbicides, or that have not been given drugs or hormones, and have been fed with “organically grown” feed. That, in and of itself, is fine. The problem is that, since farmers have to pay a high price to be allowed to sell their vegetables or meat as “certified organic”, you can’t really be sure what you’re buying. Maybe somebody has paid the fee, but has still used chemical fertilizer, and somebody else doesn’t use any chemicals at all and does everything naturally, but can’t afford the certification, so he doesn’t get to put the stamp on his produce.
Kosher, in and of itself, isn’t a scam. Jews had been eating kosher food for thousands of years before somebody figured out that they could make money from it. It’s the kosher certification that’s a scam. And that’s not the biggest one. Organic certification is a much bigger scam, since way more people buy that than those who buy kosher.
Bees can’t fly, but nobody told them that, so they do it anyway.
If it was a duet, it should be “bravi”
I think the point of the strip is that people used to spend their time on more productive activities.
I was 13 in 1971, and I never went to the mall with my friends, nor did I ever hear of anyone else doing it. There was no mall close to where I lived, and the closest I ever got to goint to the mall was going to Target (except when my mother took me shopping for clothes or shoes).
You don’t see a lot of news in those things you mentioned.
That wasn’t so unbelievable in 1991, when the strip was first published. Since there were no smart phones and hardly anybody knew what the World Wide Web was (it was only invented in 1989), what else were people supposed to read?
