NEWS ITEM: In Shanghai, Jews are eagerly buying kosher milk. The product comes in cartons that carry the drawing of a smiling cow wearing a yarmulke.
“The cow is of the bovine ilk,
“One end is moo; the other, milk.”
So Ogden Nash once versified
In words that rhymed and clarified.
Today, he’d register surprise
And maybe further poetize
About a Chinese cow that’s bred
To wear a kippah on her head!
(Objective: getting Jews to buy
Organic milk in old Shanghai.)
It all provokes astonishment!
What goes on in the Orient?
Who knew that Jews (Hebraic ilk)
Were hot to purchase kosher milk?
Who knew to China, unespied,
So many Jews had been Shanghaied?
We are astonished and surprised
That Chinese cows are Judaized!
Disoriented now are we
By such a strange anomaly.
Will mameloshn, there unsung,
Absorbed be with the Mao Tse Tongue?
