Political Humor

The advert below appeared in Haaretz on Monday.

You need to understand that the traditionl greeting during the week after Rosh Hashana in Hebrew is "G'mar Chatima Tovah" which means may you merit a laudable sealing in that the imagery at this time is that G-d seals man's fate and it would be best to be sealed in the book of life in a favorable fashion.

However, the Hebrew word, Chakira, which rhymes with Chatima, means investigation.

The advert signed by Hoss and Samuel is addressed to the President of Israel, its Prime Minister, the Government, the Knesset, the Police and the IDF and wishes them a good investigation.
