But is it Kosher for Passover?

Read this hekhsher VERY VERY carefully.
It does NOT say כשר לפסח



“Like a Goblin for Passover”?!

Well, if you took off the kaf it would be a genie for Pesach... you know, to help with the cleaning.

Related thereto (sort of), the Chinese supermarket downstairs from my apartment has fruit juice that is kosher le pesach.

I guess no kitnois were squoze on those machines.

I refrained from remarking on it - I can explain to them that "my toilet ain't working" or "the plume of my aunt is dans la desk of mine oncle", but the entire kitnios - kosher - kosher le pesach gestalt is more than my grasp of Cantonese will bear. And they do not need to know, as their customers are not concerned with such issues.

Still. Kosher le pesach. At a Chinese grocery store. Such a goldene medine.

A goblin with the invitation "you pee (in a circle)"?

Ah, the times when it simply said "Shomour ve zochour" on the goblets...

Mich:

i completely forgot about that sheid=jinn thing!

Daniel:

Rambam would say "it may be kosher for Passover, but it's assur because of ‘avoda zara!"

The:

i got dandelion greens for maror this year from a huge Korean grocery store. there were shelves and shelves of hekhshered tofu *from Asia* there. it was crazy.

Yeihu’:

but how do Chaldeans taste?

Lipman:

that's over this goblin's head... abort/retry/fail? :-P

sorry, hekhshered for the rest of the year — not KFP. it'd be practically impossible to find KFP-hekhshered tofu in the USA, since the major kashrut organizations don't seem to like the idea of people who eat qitniyot, or even just qitniyot derivatives.

"but how do Chaldeans taste?"

I never tried one yet. I hear though that if you get some canned meat from china, you'll probably taste some Russian or South-Asian border-patrol.

In fact, more accurately it's "Chaledonia For Passover". The closest to that as far as I know is New Caledonia in the Pacific.

Lipman meant "Oh You Pee" ( O-U-P - in a circle...) [Ain't muh name tsofnat paaneach for a reason ;-)]

PS - AFAIK tofu usu. includes also some fermented grain besides the beans.

ohwell, i guess the tofu was too good to be true.
