    without straw.  G-d had mercy on us and lead us out of bondage.

    To commemorate this miracle we have a holiday that requires the eating of matzah for 8 days - and leaves us able to make bricks without straw. Oy.

    And we sail and we sail and we never see land, just the rum in the bottle and a pipe in my hand...

      My dad (may he R. I. P), had plenty of straw. Every year, my mom would try some new cake recipe made from matzah. She'd proclaim: "This new recipe makes it REALLY taste like cake".  Dad would take  a bite and we'd wait for his annual pronouncement:

      "STRAW!!!"
