Jewish Humor on Your Desktop is a series of interactive eBooks that bring hundreds of funny Jewish videos and anecdotes to your favorite screen -- desktop or laptop computer, Kindle, iPad, iPhone, Android phone or tablet Each video is introduced with a short written commentary explaining its back story. The videos are based on three years and 900 entries from Jewish Humor Central, a blog written by Al Kustanowitz, who has been studying, chronicling, and delivering Jewish humor for more than 30 years. This is the second book in the series, titled Israel is a Funny Country. This book explores the multifaceted nature of humor in Israel, some of which is intentional and some of which is unintentional. Either way, the quirks of Israeli life contribute to making that life interesting and fulfilling. In the pages of this volume, we take a look at humorous slices of Israeli life, funny TV commercials, unusual stories about food, surprising rabbinic bans on daily activities, simchas as they can only be celebrated in Israel, endearing aspects of Israeli culture, a look at the growing phenomenon of flash mobs, and a glimpse of a few unusual Israeli sports.
