Noach goes to the County Clerk-Recorder's Office

Sometime this week, the Balabusta and Groomra will be going to get a marriage license.

We have to appear, in person, at the County Clerk-Recorder's office in Oakland, with ID demonstrating that we are over eighteen, and are male and female (1 each, created he them).

Ethically, I have issues with the fact that we still need to be male and female (I mean, WE are, and I'm happy with that, but that everyone needs to be...oy. I mean that it annoys me that the state of California will not issue a marriage license for a same-sex couple,) but at the same time, it makes me smile that we need to show up in a pair like a couple of creatures about to get on the ark.

I explained this to the fella, and then added "And we give them our $84, and they give us a marriage license."

"Oh," said the fella. "I thought you were going to say that we give them $84 and they give us two of every animal."

In an apartment this size, maybe not the best idea.

Hi. My name is Eugene Gershin. I'd like to welcome you to Obadiah Shoher's blog, Samson Blinded: A Machiavellian Perspective on the Middle East Conflict.

Obadiah is a pen name of a politician. He writes extremely controversial articles about Israel, the Middle East politics, and terrorism.

Obadiah advocates political rationalism instead of moralizing. He is economic liberal and political conservative.

Google refused advertising our site and Amazon deleted reviews of Obadiah's book. Nevertheless, Obadiah’s is the largest Jewish personal blog, read by more than 100,000 people monthly. 210,000 people from 81 countries downloaded Obadiah’s book. The blog was voted the best overall in People’s Choice: Jewish and Israeli blogs Awards, received Webby Honoree and other awards.

Please help us spread Obadiah's message, and mention the blog in one of your posts, or link to us. We would greatly appreciate your comments at

Mazal Tov on the license thing. No blood test?

By the way, its was only pairs of the treifa animals. Check your bereishit -- Noach had seven of each of the kosher animals.

>>so does that make us trayf?<<

I don't know about you, but I lack the necessary split hooves, and no matter how hard I try, I can't chew my cud.
