Maybe Now Your Good-For-Nothing Children Will Pick Up A Phone And Call

Ultra-Orthodox Jews in Israel have invented a "kosher phone." It makes a nice sandwich with Gulden's spicy brown mustard and Dr. Brown's Cel-Ray Tonic. And can I get you a little Danish for after? Diet-shmiet, you're pale, have you been eating?



Ultra-Orthodox Jews in Israel have invented a "kosher phone." It makes a nice sandwich with Gulden's spicy brown mustard and Dr. Brown's Cel-Ray Tonic. And can I get you a little Danish for after? Diet-shmiet, you're pale, have you been eating?But seriously, ladies and germs.

The company, Mirs Communications Ltd., has developed a phone that "is stripped down to its original function: making and receiving calls. There's no text messaging, no Internet access, no video options, no camera. More than 10,000 numbers for phone sex, dating services and other offerings are blocked. A team of rabbinical overseers makes sure the list is up to date."

Mirs, a subsidiary of Motorola, is hoping to export the phone to the United States and other nations with a large Jewish population. There are even talks to export the phone to Arab countries! From your mouth to God's ear, it should happen!
