I had the article about Shalom Sharabi, whose major accomplishment was to codify the kezayit of matzots. The kezayit is a unit of volume based on the size of an average olive: I found that it was very absurd as there’s no such thing as an average olive, but if you admit there is you can see the whole world as ruled by olives. I wrote a text to explain my theory of olives, sounding very serious but at the same time saying things that don’t make sense but that are actually true. For example, I mentioned Sarah Yatzkar like she was some obscure writer that everyone should be ashamed of not knowing, but she’s my great-grandmother, so I guess no one knows her. I used her picture and turned her into an olive rock star.
