Strange Ploughmates in England
We in Chelm wish the unlikely duo of David Cameron and Nick Clegg in jolly olde England well, but we cannot help but feel foreboding. For one thing, the Torah instructs us (Deuteronomy 22:10) not to yoke an ox to an ass when ploughing. Personally, it reminds me of the time we had two rabbis in Chelm, Rabbi Itzik and Rabbi Shmuelik, arguing over the dietary laws. If you think electoral politics are bad, you should see a rabbinic dispute over the mingling of imaginary milk and questionable meat! It's a long story. Meantime, we wish Prime Minister Ox and Deputy Prime Minister Ass, or is it the other way around, all the best!
