Matzah Ball Cartooon

Matzah Ball Cartoon

Happy Passover to my Jewish friends.  This Matzah (Matza, Matzo…damn how do you spell it?) Ball Cartoon was inspired by a conversation I had with a friend.  His girlfriend is Jewish and he went to her house for Passover seder.  He said he really loved the Matzah Ball soup.  I asked him if he knew whether or not they cut the balls off the matzah before or after killing it in the wild.  He looked at me confused for a minute.

I also made this image.  Thoughts on whether I should put it on a t-shirt?

I got your Matzah Balls right here

  1. Reminds me of that scene in the Chevy Chase movie “Funny Farm” when he was eating sheep balls…

  2. Gavin says:

    Mmmmm, that’s some tasty balls.

  3. Bo Lumpkin says:

    No wonder they are elusive.

  4. jynksie says:

    You’ve just ruined Matzah Ball munching for me! Oy-vey! o.O *smirk*

    • Bearman says:

      Is it really “munching” I think of munching like on a cracker or even Matza. A Matzah ball is more like gumming or slightly chewing

  5. Nate Fakes says:

    Hate to admit it, but I have no clue what a Matzah is. I’m guessing they have scrumptious balls though

  6. George says:

    This looks like the making of a great character, BM! I’ve never eaten any, but I have kicked a Matzah in the balls once or twice just on general purpose. He was okay, though. A little dazed, but okay.

  7. Dr. Cynicism says:

    Hooray! Matzah balls for all!

    • Bearman says:

      Shhh…don’t let PETA hear you say that, they may be listening.

      • Colleen says:

        PETA don’t care about Matzo’s. They are not furry and cute. They are square and kinda dry and I hate to break it to ya, but those guys aint got balls at all. If you’re looking for the elusive balls, they are typically found lurking in Jewish kitchens.

  8. Goeber says:

    The Matzahball is square?

  9. Hahaha…
    CRANKY! What a wondrous sight! Ah, such a BEAUTIFUL specimen!
    *in my best Steve Irwin*

  10. Brad says:

    Run! Protect your precious, delicious balls!

  11. I could have swore that was me hiding behind the tree. I’ll leave follow up ball jokes alone.

  12. Duncanr says:

    I’ve tasted matzah. Believe me it’s not an experience I want to repeat. You need not fear your matzah balls are in any danger from me !!!

    And judging by this, I’m not the only one with an ambivalent attitude towards matzah 😆

  13. do these come in italian flavor?

  14. Tony McGurk says:

    I am so glad I am not a Matzah. Or if I was I’d want to be female.
    Bugs Matzah to Elmer Fudd: So Doc do you wanna take me home or shoot castrate me now???

  15. Jason says:

    Hahaha! My sister and her friend made matzah balls for our Passover seder and they were small. I wanted to call them “not-so balls” but I figured no one should say that to anyone else, regardless of gender.

  16. Friggin Loon says:

    I have a sneaky suspicion Bearman is taking cooking classes. Two food toons in a row, something’s cooking!!!!!!

  17. jammer5 says:

    Definitely t-shirt material. Excellent on both.

  18. writerdood says:

    I wonder if a rifle is the best weapon to hunt a Matzah? For years now I’ve been using a baseball bat and a bowie knife, but maybe that’s foolish. I’ve never actually encountered one in the wild. How dangerous is a Matzah anyway? I mean, you wouldn’t hunt bears with a baseball bat and a bowie knife, so is it wise to hunt a Matza that way? Maybe I should bring a first aid kit, just in case.

    • Bearman says:

      Rifles and baseball bats might not be a good idea. The matzah is so fragile that either could disintegrate it to a million pieces

  19. lisleman says:

    mazel tov Oy vey poor matzah

  20. Gruff Guano says:

    Dr. Livingstone’s balls, I presume ?

  21. Too funny Bearman. I will have to send this to my friends who are celebrating.

  22. Tony McGurk says:

    I Googled Matzah & sure enough their were plenty of square ones just like yours as well as lottsa photos of Matzah Balls too. Your cartoon/comic came up in the results too

    • Bearman says:

      That’s my goal. Find out what no one else is cartooning about and then do it so I show up on search. I hope I was on page one.

  23. Tony McGurk says:

    Drats I used the wrong “their”
    You need the Ajax Edit Comments plugin like I’ve got so we/I can edit our/my mistakes…

    • Bearman says:

      More plugins can slow down the site so I avoid as many as possible. On the other hand, I would rather make fun of your errors as that gives me a sense of accomplishment.

  24. Hands off that Matzah’s balls!

  25. Lisa says:

    I think it would sell. Try next year?

  26. MJ says:

    HA! I’ve been missing some funny stuff!

  27. Really wondering matah ball cartoon here.

  28. Brilliant! I am going to send this to my (Jewish) parents. They will be giggly.
