Offended? What are you talking about? I really have no idea where you got that idea. On the opposite, I really appreciate the fact that you brought his up.
You light from the right to left, just like Hebrew writing.

I just love someone who has a great sense of humor. Thanks Charlie for giving me my laugh for the day.

Huh? I wonder if I'm the only one who doesn't understand?

I'd like to add my "Happy Chanukah" to our Jewish DC friends.

Have none of you ever seen a Jewish person reading? Unlike the rest of the world, they start to read on the right side of a page toward the left and read at the last page of a book toward our front. He is telling CWS that like Jewish folks, she has a sense of humor like his folks, she does it backwards. Whatever "it" may be. Even if it may be an insult by the standards of the rest of us.

It is one of the times, when you have to be there to understand. CWS has a sense of humor that is backwards like the Jewish folks.

The Japanese read the same way, I guess I just never found it to be funny or something to laugh about.

It was the mesnch for the bench that was funny. Charlie got it right away, as I did. A mensch is someone that stick their nose into other folks business. AS the Elf on a Shelf for those celebrating Christmas, a Mensch does it for Chanukah.
