27 Things Jews Are Tired Of Hearing On Passover

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

Posted on

1. "Happy Passover! Wait. Do you say 'Happy Passover'?"

Nickelodeon / Via nickelodeon.tumblr.com

Yes, yes you can.

2. "What's Passover about again?"

Columbia Pictures / Via jamiepandahugs.tumblr.com

Here's a Haggadah. Read on.

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

Bravo / Via realitytvgifs.tumblr.com

Nope.

4. "Oh, it's the one where you can't have bread?"

Reprise Records / Via fuckyeahidinagifs.tumblr.com

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?"

NBC / Via scarringstars.tumblr.com

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?"

Via awesomelyluvvie.com

Eight horrible bread (and more)-less days.

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

Lionsgate / Via ianwanda.tumblr.com

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 pandawhale.com

BUT THAT IS ONLY ONE THING.

10. "Don't you drink a lot of wine, though?"

DreamWorks Pictures / Via gif-central.blogspot.com

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?"

Fox / Via whateveryousaysummer.tumblr.com

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

14. "Oh, it's the plain kind? The everything one is really good."

USA Films / Via duckieoverblane.tumblr.com

The everything one is also not kosher for Passover.

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

Paramount Pictures / Via tigershout.tumblr.com

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

16. "I haven't had this in forever!"

Buena Vista Pictures / Via perezhilton.tumblr.com

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

17. "Ugh, the comic's in Hebrew?"

CBS / Via giphy.com

Yep. It's for Passover.

18. "What does it say?"

God knows. It has no vowels!

19. "You can't even read Hebrew?"

AMC / Via whatshouldmadmencallme.tumblr.com

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 meansnothing4u.tumblr.com

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

21. "Why aren't you having any of Ali's birthday cake?"

Via niggology.tumblr.com

Because it includes the earlier ingredients I mentioned!

22. "Want to go get pizza?"

SERIOUSLY?!

23. "Wait, you can't have pizza?!"

United Artists / Via hoppip.tumblr.com

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

24. "Why aren't you coming to after-work drinks?"

NBC / Via imsirius.tumblr.com

Do you know what's in alcohol?

25. "Can I have a piece of your chocolate?"

NBC / Via karamigo.tumblr.com

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

26. "Ew. This tastes weird."

YES, BUT IT'S ALL I HAVE!

27. "What are you doing for Easter?"

Via thegifhunter.tumblr.com

Wishing I could eat your chocolate instead of that shit.
