Why didn’t Israel choose the barn owl as its National Bird and other hilarious insights by The Colbert Report:

Hat tip to Beach Hillel blogger, Rachel Bookstein, who wrote:

MOT fans of the Colbert Report got a huge boost yesterday when Stephen Colbert reported on Israel’s newly designated National Bird the long-billed hoopoe, celebrated the kosher certification of giraffe meat by dancing a combo-Irish jig/ Horah and spilling the Mani.

In his own words, or those of his very funny (Jewish?) writers, L’Giraffem to you Stephen!

Let it be known that we have always known that giraffe was kosher Stephen, we just don’t know where to cut its throat. LOL.
