are we in the same boat again? (hmmm...mi ha-nakar?)

? אולי צריך היה לסלק את הנקר

כל מה שאני צריך לדעת על החיים, למדתי מתיבת נח ...

1. אל תפספס את הספינה.
2. זכור שכולנו באותה הסירה.
3. תכנן קדימה. לא ירד גשם כשנח בנה את התיבה.
4. הישאר בכושר. כשתהיה בן 100 מישהו עשוי לבקש ממך לעשות משהו גדול באמת.
5. אל תקשיב למבקרים. פשוט המשך במה שצריך להעשות.
6. בנה את העתיד שלך על יסודות גבוהים.
7. למען הבטחון, הסתובב בזוגות.
8. מהירות איננה יתרון בכל מצב. החלזונות היו על הסיפון יחד עם הברדלסים.
9. כאשר אתה בלחץ – תצוף מעט.
10.זכור, התיבה נבנתה בידי חובבנים. הטיטאניק – בידי מקצוענים.
11.לא משנה מה עוצמת הסערה, כאשר אתה עם אלוהים תמיד מחכה קשת בענן.
I apologize for the screwy formatting (my computer doesn't know its right from its left), and to those of you whose computers - or yourselves - do not read Hebrew. This was also circulating in English, a long time ago; joke in Ivrit sent via email, courtesy of my friend Aliza in Kiryat Moshe. For a translation, please email me.


Great Lessons for life...
I guess thats why Noach made it..and the rest did not.
Thanks for sharing..
Very nice thanks

David: They are, with a few exceptions, depending on the circumstance; for example, 'rocking the boat' - sometimes, as in the political/military situation currently in Israel, one has to rock the boat in order to effect change.
SWFM: Glad you liked it. I wonder which was the original, the Hebrew or the English? Anyone know?

'm00kie: do you understand the Ivrit? It's double entendres , plays-on-words and cliches relating to Noah's Ark (but meaning something else in everyday speech).
AbbaGav linked to you from his blog and I know whatever Gavriel links to is A-OK! You have a really informative blog and I look forward to perusing through your archives!

WHOA-what an honor! Thank you for your accolades (and thank you, AbbaGav!). I just write what I am passionate about. And I do my research(thank G-d I also had a good Jewish education).

Skoyach, Reb Noach!

My pleasure lady-light (and thanks RCJ, you're way over the line now in the kindness department). I'm not sure whether you're memely inclinced, but in case you're interested, I've tagged you with the book meme at my site, so, your mission should you choose to accept it...

Oh no! The dreaded BOOK MEME!! What if I haven't read anything all summer? All my life? What if I have short-term memory loss, and can't remember what I did תמול שלשום (which of course I can't)?!
uh, thank you AbbaGav. I think.
