Tonight is the Festival of Purim on the Jewish calendar.<br><br>
It is prescribed that you dress up in silly costumes, attend a party and make a huge rukkus.<br><br>
It is also prescribed that you drink.<br><br>
and drink.<br><br>
.... and drink.<br><br><br>
....and then- you drink more.<br><img alt="banana.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif"><img alt="hello2.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/hello2.gif"><img alt="banana.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif"><img alt="hello2.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/hello2.gif"><img alt="banana.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif"><br>

The story of the triangular cookie is that in this festival- (like pretty much every other jewish festival) some dude tried to wipe out the Jews. He had a big triangular hat.<br><br>
We now eat his hat as a form of contempt. <img alt="razz.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/razz.gif">
