  1. The advent of sufiganiot for Hannukah is not Israel kept busier by the shape of our waist. The diabetic velocity increases.

    Every donut you eat is two latkes you did not taste. Who could substitute the confection for the blessed?

    diabetes is a crime. Donuts are great but hannukah is a time of miracles. Your waist-line is not a private matter.

    His dieters can see the shame of a not so innocent approach to a great celebration.

    The latke is a tater that must be minded. It knows the oil was for the commerce of a greater look at joy.

    Donuts are just an easier look at gelt.

    Funny but the endocrinologist knows your secrets.

    A spud is a friend.

    Shalom. Happy non-sufiganiot Hannukah with great latkes!
