I sent Seth Godin an email I got with a new twist on truth in packaging. It showed some chunks of Ham with a label "Delicious for Chanukah." Seth, who's got a keen eye and ear for truth and insanity in marketing, blogged it at Seth's Blog: Ham for Channukah.
OK, it might actually be delicious. I wouldn't know. But I wonder... is this testimony to the trivialization and Hellenization of Chanukah? Or has marketing supplanted tradition as the core of American society?
(My, my Morty. How philosophical we're getting! Must be something in the Chanukah lights....)
