Ugly-Pants Alert! Boiling Over

And the LORD said unto Moses and unto Aaron, Take to you handfuls of ashes of the furnace, and let Moses sprinkle it toward the heaven in the sight of Pharaoh.

And it shall become small dust in all the land of Egypt, and shall be a boil breaking forth with blains upon man, and upon beast, throughout all the land of Egypt.

And they took ashes of the furnace, and stood before Pharaoh; and Moses sprinkled it up toward heaven; and it became a boil breaking forth with blains upon man, and upon beast.

Exodus 9:8–10

Happy Passover to our Jewish readers. Don’t forget to vote in last year’s Passover Poll!

Ugly-Pants Alert! It’s a Festival of … Something

We interrupt our regularly scheduled Theme for whatever this is. I feel bad that I don’t have anything Hanukkah-specific for my Red Sea Pedestrians, but this is festive, and those red shapes kind of look like candle flames, no? Hey, I’m trying.

Happy Hanukkah!
