Purim is the day of the year when Israelis dress up in costumes, like Halloween in the US. The children I saw were in the usual: policemen, Queen Esther, that sort of thing. Among the adults, however, the most popular costume by far was something with a wig/three passports/tennis gear. Ive never seen so many Mossad agents out on the street in my life.
And then there was this variation on the "how many XXX to fix a light-bulb" joke:
- How many Mossad agents to fix a light-bulb?
- Light-bulb? There wasn't any light-bulb.
