With Congress off for its Passover-Easter recess, U.S. Representative Ted Deutch, a Democrat who represents southwest Palm Beach County and northwest Broward, took to Twitter.
But he wasn’t wishing his constituents a happy holiday, nor tweeting about pertinent legislation like the Supreme Court’s current deliberation over the Defense of Marriage Act.
Apparently the 140-character Passover punning started at Deutch’s family seder, when his daughter threw out a holiday themed twist on movie titles.
Among the three dozen-plus titles he tweeted or retweeted – yes, the Twitterverse got in on the punning!:
“Silence of the Lambchops”
“Seder Private Ryan”
“Let My People Argo”
“Four Questions and a Funeral”
“War Horse Radish”
“Dude, Where’s My Karpas?”
“Matzo Do About Nothing”
“Matzo Balls of Fury”
“Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Matzo Factory”
“Rocky Maror Picture Show”
Some of the user submissions were even better:

Hilarious, right? Peculiar. But hilarious. And, we must say, Deutch made great use of the new Twitter line breaks.
