With this hilarious parody Haggadah from the comedic minds of Dave Barry, Alan Zweibel and Adam Mansbach, good Jews everywhere will no longer have to sit (and sleep) through a lengthy and boring Seder. The authors will be take you through every step of the Seder, from getting rid of all the chametz in your home by setting it on fire with a kosher blowtorch to a retelling of the Passover story starring Pharaoh Schmuck and a burning bush that sounds kind of like Morgan Freeman, set against the backdrop of the Promised Land --- which turned out not to be a land of milk and honey but rather one of rocks and venomous scorpions the size of Yorkshire terriers. You then eat a celebratory brisket and wrap up the whole evening by taking at least 45 minutes to say good-bye to everyone.
Philip is a happy man --- the owner of a pet store and a referee for kids' soccer. Jeffrey is the sole sane person in a world filled with morons. The two of them are about to collide in a series of outrageous events that will send them running for their lives.
