CHILD 1: Dad, why are Jews slaves?How about putting away the old Maxwell House haggadahs this year and acting out 'Scenes from an Egyptian Family'.
ADULT 1: Well, son, when our people came here a long time ago, the Pharaoh feared our strength. So he made us into slaves.
CHILD 1: Did we fight?
ADULT 1: No and we should have. We thought that the kind that enslaved us was just a bad man and that once he died, the new king would set us free.
CHILD 1: Bad guess, huh? We've got to do something about it.
ADULT: (Desperately trying to change the subject) Uhh. How was your day at work, dear?
ADULT 1: Awful. They treated me like a slave.
CHILD 1: (Refusing to change the subject) You are a slave, Dad.
ADULT 1: (Gives son a frustrated look and sarcastically says). Thanks. No wonder there's no profit sharing.
