Tzipi and Buji Go to the Market

With only a few days to go until the election, Israeli co-leaders of the Zionist Union — Tzipi Livni and Isaac Herzog (aka Buji) — wanted to do a little last-minute politicking. So they visited Tel Aviv’s outdoor Carmel Market.

They were really excited about it.

REALLY excited.

See, we eat pears! We’re personable!

Could this strawberry BE any bigger?!

Glad-handing over the avocados because WHY NOT.

Step away from the challah, Tzipi!

You think those are sweet?

Isn’t there a discount for amicable politicians?

All together now!

How much is this photo op costing me again?

We’re FUN. Don’t we look like FUN?
