Babar Mitzvah

Babar.
Bar Mitzvah.
Babar Mitzvah.

The day an elephant REALLY never forgets, because it is the day he becomes a man.

Which is the reverse of most bar mitzvahs, where Jewish boys hit puberty and start growing all misshapen and having skin problems like an elephant.*

Pachyderm.
Dermatology.
Pachydermatology.


* If only their tusks weren't made of ivory but rather of Ivory soap.
One of nature's great ironies.

Also, doves are not made of Dove soap.
Though I don't know what Dove itself is made of.
(I'm no soapsmith.)

The dove is meant to represent peace, so it would probably make a soothing body bar.

Soapy.
Peaceful.
Soapeaceful.

  1. I wanted to make a joke on Facebook about a mitzvah, and the two puns I came up with were "Robot Mitzvah" and "Babar Mitzvah." Googled them.

    You beat me to it. Good show.

  3. Thanks and my apologies!

    If you like, you're welcome to make some joke about robotic pachyderms. I didn't cover that yet.
