The last couple of weeks we’ve had a bit of everything! Funny observations from around the world include Annette’s banana (almost as expensive as the real thing), the Adidas Rabbi, a cool Hanukkah sign, funny registration plates (lbriut and benzona), protection for parking tickets from the rain (thanks Iryah!), and a hilarious Google Translate mistranslate. There were also beautiful photos from Ella of some cute ducks, Shahar of a fluffy dog, Gil of some angry clouds, Dekel of some cool architecture, Yoav of some surfers, and of course great photos from community favorites Niv and Yosi! We also had funny memes from Kobi, Shian, and Israel, important community posts from Evi and Guy, and some awesome community business posts from Ariel the Plumber, Guy the Dogwalker, Eytan the Shoe Designer, and Jake the Pickler! Thank you everyone for sharing!
