Ever heard of Twitteleh? It’s a new service for communicating with your Jewish mother in just 140 characters. All you have to do is answer these three questions:
1. Where are you?
2. What have you eaten?
3. Are you wearing a sweater?
The service, explained in this two-minute video, is a gag — obviously. And I don’t think this is exclusive to Jewish mothers. My mom would be thrilled to hear the answers to those questions, plus at least two more:
4. When’s the last time you talked to your brother?
5. When will your father and I see you again?
The answers to those questions are “yesterday” and “whenever you and dad can make time in your busy schedules,” every time.
