I smiled at a mistake today on Jeopardy.
The writing on the wall in Daniel is said to be in Aramaic rather than Hebrew. It read “Mene mene tekel parsin” rather than “mene mene tekel upharsin.” Measured, measured, weighed, divided.
This is notable because it is a pun; Those who would divide – parsin – the empire were parse – Persians. They would soon conquer those who had dispersed the Jews.
Sombody, rather someone, had a sense of humor.
