    This needs to be mounted on a Roomba.

    There’s absolutely no way trilobites are kosher.

      No they’re not, but the dietary laws only restrict what you can eat, other uses are mostly fine- though some religious items must be made from kosher animals. Also, it’s just a depiction- a lot of menorahs have lions on them, and lions also aren’t kosher.

      The question is, are mosasaurs kosher? After all, they live in the sea and have scales…

    An 8-hitter belonging to Harold & Kumar’s neighbors.

    If you’re gonna go really old school with your menorah you should also follow the tradition of rabbi Shammai, who said all candles should be lit on the first night and then extinguished over each succeeding night, to represent the gradually diminishing oil.

      That makes perfect sense, actually.

      • Christopher says:

        Yeah. There was a lot of debate between Shammai and Hillel about how the candles should be lit. Shammai went with the more literal interpretation while Hillel went the more poetic route, with the increasing light symbolizing growing hope.

        I kind of like Shammai’s idea, but I see why Hillel won out.

    That’s nice but I still can’t look at it without thinking of the 8 bong hits of Hannukah.

    Trilobite: “I was created on the -190162809994th day of your creation myth, hominid, and proceeded to kick as much ass as my numerous legs would suggest for over a quarter of a billion years.”

  7. The _real_ trilobyte approves!

    Shellom.

  9. I would definitely buy a trilobite Roomba!

    (who, delightfully, produces every conceivable variation on the themes of glass and trilobites) – I can think of several interesting variations not represented.
