    1. I guess movies like to pass over on details

  2. Should have put him in black and white pajamas so the world didn't get confused. It's a shame we know only three things about jews in the mainstay. The Bible story, The Holocaust story, and Milhouse from the Simpsons.

    1. And that challah bread is to die for.
      Today's Unsolicited Bit of Information About Al Penwasser: Mrs. Penwasser #1 was Jewish (presumably still is). I learned a lot from her and her family. Like that challah thing.

  4. Some of the jewish history wasn't nearly as epic as The Ten Commandments.

    1. That flood thing was kinda bitchin', though.

  5. For years they played The Ten Commandments here in Portland on Easter Sunday. I always thought it peculiar since the Ten Commandments has nothing to do with Easter, or even Jesus.

    1. I mentioned that several years ago. But, since Easter happens around Passover and Jesus went to Jerusalem for Passover, I guess maybe that's why...?

  6. He didn't look Jewish? It's those shimmering brown ripped abs, right? I mean, um, Pharoah was wrong to stereotype my beautiful people.

    1. Ramses had no room to talk. He was bald.
      NOTE: I really don't know what that means.

    2. And his head was shiny. I wonder if it glowed in the dark. Martha Stewart would've gotten excited.
      NOTE: I really don't know what anything I write means.

    1. This was the first one I wrote. A Passover mention is a no-brainer. Well, that and Gary Coleman,

  8. I love this movie! Edward G Robinson in his New York Accent "Where ya Messia now?" Hahahaaaa. I love the campy horny Anne Baxter saying "Moses, Moses". I also thought Moses could have done so much more if he remained King, instead he grew a long white beard and became a bit boring

    1. Whenever I get philosophical (I sometimes do), I think that Moses should have kept his mouth shut. Had he done so he could have done quite a bit for his people, especially when Seti died. He also could have done sexy time with Anne Baxter instead of Lily Munster.

    2. Lily is pretty but you know Anne is into sex big time.

  9. Well, who did you want for Moses? Marty Engel?

  10. What he meant to say was "Get your stinking paws off me, you damned dirty Pharaoh!"

    1. Yeah, to look at me, you'd think I was a little grey-haired hobbit.
      Oops, huh, that pretty much nails me.

  12. Hello greetings and good wishes.

    That was a fantastic movie with Yul Brynner and Charles Heston. Both these actors are my favorites.

    Best wishes
