I Made it to Webster's Dictionary!(?!)

There are dreams coming true (Extracts From Noah's Diary in NYPL; The Emoji Haggadah and The Coronavirus Haggadah in The New York Times) and then there are accomplishments never even dreamed of.

I made it to Webster's Dictionary! Wait, what? How?

Well, The Emoji Haggadah wound up in an example sentence for "rebus." Check it out. Is this a kick in the head or what?:  

Photo attached juuuuuuuuuuust in case another example replaces mine.

As a nice piece of gravy, in the fall issue of Jewish Action there is an exploratory article by the talented Steve Lipman, where he looks at the history of Jewish Humor in Dark Times. The Coronavirus Haggadah literally (I used that word not incorrectly in a sentence! Yay!) gets the last laugh. Have a peek:

The Festivus Haggadah will get its place in the sun too. It's almost chag...

I just realized I've created 1/100th of 1% of all haggadot ever written. Gotta start cranking out the next one.
