A Problematic Custom

 Am I the only one who, when biting into a blue-and-white Israeli Independence Day cupcake, can think of nothing but Tehillim/Psalms 79:6-7?

שפוך חמתך אל הגוים אשר לא ידעוך
ועל ההמלכות אשר בשמך לא קראו
כי אכל את יעקב
ואת נוהו השמו

Pour out Your wrath against the nations who do not know You,
and upon the kingdoms that have not called out in Your name —
For they have devoured Jacob,
and laid waste his dwelling-place.

Any reason why you put that comment on this post, and not my journalistic post on the MASS RABBINIC ARREST?

Never thought of Psalms 76 [of any verse] while eating a cupcake,,,

Perhaps The Cosmic Baker should be on my mind...but i am weak...at least i remember to say a bracha.
