Purim fun has been around for a long time, but lately, I've gotten jaded and seen so little innovation. I don't enjoy pranks that involve destruction of property or embarrassment to others.
It's HARD to be funny without hurting something or some one.
Enter blog reader Mar Gavriel.
He had a GREAT idea.
He painted his wall with luminescent paint, which is virtually invisible with the lights on.
He invited a group of people to Purim Seudah and arranged for the lights to shut off just after it had gotten dark outside (window shades were drawn as well).
This is what appeared on his wall, much to his fake consternation and terror, in the darkened room. (Keep in mind, luminescent paint in a dark room is tough to photograph... use your imagination. It was much better in person....)
Well done, Mar Gavriel!
