27 Things Jews Are Tired Of Hearing On Passover

Can’t we all just agree that matzoh is actually not good?

1. “Happy Passover! Wait. Do you say ‘Happy Passover’?”

Nickelodeon / Via

Yes, yes you can.

2. “What’s Passover about again?”

Columbia Pictures / Via

Here’s a Haggadah. Read on.

3. “So, is this the one where you fast?”


4. “Oh, it’s the one where you can’t have bread?”

Reprise Records / Via

Yes, among many other things.

5. “But you can have, like, everything else, right?”

More like NOTHING else.

6. “Wait, what can’t you eat again?”

Anything with wheat, oats, rye, barley, rice, corn, beans, lentils, peas, soybeans, peanuts, or sesame seeds (to name a few ingredients) is off the table.

7. “And how long is it for?”

Eight horrible bread (and more)-less days.

8. “Then you get eight days of presents, right? Like Hanukkah.”

Lionsgate / Via

If by present you mean constipation, then yes, yes you do.

9. “Oh, well, that’s not that hard. We have to give up something for Lent for 40 days.”

Fox / Via


10. “Don’t you drink a lot of wine, though?”

Have you ever had Manischewitz? ‘Tis hardly wine.

11. “You’re so lucky. You get to leave work early!”


I would rather be here.

12. “I love matzoh!”

Oh, really? DO YOU?!

13. “Can I have a piece of your matzoh?”

Seriously? This is the only thing I have for lunch!

14. “Oh, it’s the plain kind? The everything one is really good.”

The everything one is also not kosher for Passover.

15. “Can I have a piece of your Bazooka gum?”

Paramount Pictures / Via

Again, this is only thing I have getting me through the day.

16. “I haven’t had this in forever!”

Buena Vista Pictures / Via

Because who would choose gum that loses its flavor in a matter of seconds?

17. “Ugh, the comic’s in Hebrew?”

CBS / Via

Yep. It’s for Passover.

18. “What does it say?”


God knows. It has no vowels!

19. “You can’t even read Hebrew?”

Not since my Bar/Bat Mitzvah.

20. “You’re leaving work early again?! But Dan’s Jewish and he’s not leaving.”

Paramount Pictures / Via

Well, Dan’s actually not that Jewish, seemingly.

21. “Why aren’t you having any of Ali’s birthday cake?”

Because it includes the earlier ingredients I mentioned!

22. “Want to go get pizza?”



23. “Wait, you can’t have pizza?!”

United Artists / Via

Unless Sbarro’s is now serving matzoh, no, I cannot.

24. “Why aren’t you coming to after-work drinks?”

Do you know what’s in alcohol?

25. “Can I have a piece of your chocolate?”

You’ve already had my matzoh and Bazooka. Why not?

26. “Ew. This tastes weird.”



27. “What are you doing for Easter?”

Wishing I could eat your chocolate instead of that shit.
