The Retirement Lifestyle You've
Always Dreamed About

Pharaoh: Oh, thank God, you're
here, make these things go away.
I've tried everything — facial
masks, buff puff, exfoliates, zinc
supplements, hypnosis, feng shui,
everything! Clear my complexion,
and I'll let you Israelites worship
in the desert for four days, if you
want to.
Aaron: OK, we'll again start
packing.
(They turn to leave)
Pharaoh: Wait, if I change my
mind, what would happen?
Aaron: Well, if you don't let us
go, the Lord will rain down on
you millions of little round balls,
and when you try to chase after us
you'll slip and fall down, and you'll
try to get up, and you'll slip and
fall again and we'll be laughing so

The script also incorporates
some classic parodies like "Just a
Tad of Haroset" sung to the tune of
"A Spoon Full of Sugar" and "Les
Miselijah" to the tune of "Do You
Hear the People Sing." (To find a
comprehensive list of Passover
parodies with cited authors, try
www.JewishFreeware.org .)
"I just try to inject some humor
into the retelling of the story:' says
Light, who, despite the comedy,
maintains a tone of reverence and
thanksgiving, and even incorpo-
rates detailed laws into the night
with printed explanations. In one,
he describes the meaning and laws
of eating the afikomen, the dessert
at the end of the seder: "After this
step, nothing else may be eaten or
drunk — except a laxative." El
