Israeli election season started pretty much right as the U.S. election season ended. Fear not – it’s no less depressing, frustrating and exhausting.
I wonder if I can write in a candidate this time, too?
Eretz Nehederet (Israeli sketch comedy) collected Israeli election memes and some of them are real… ‘winners’ (ehhhhh). A few of my favs:
Naftali Bennett: HaBayit HaYehudi (Jewish Home)
“I threw a grenade and killed 80 terrorists. And then the grenade exploded.”
Yair Lapid: Yesh Atid (There is a Future)
Yair Lapid: “Yair Lapid once said…” Bystander: “Aren’t you Yair Lapid?” Yair Lapid: “Thanks. You’re not bad yourself.”
Tzipi Livni: Hatnua (The Movement)
“Hello, everyone, welcome to the first meeting of the party Hatnua. Since most of us don’t know each other, let’s open with everyone saying your name and where you lost in the primaries.”
Aryeh Deri: Shas (Shas)
We’re there for those who don’t have… the energy to pay taxes.
Also, some non-elections related ones. Worth it. Check it out. (All Hebrew)
Also, Bibi and Bennett are playing footsie. Evil hatred footsie.
