The Big Felafel

Funny falafel sign on Ben Yehuda St.

You may have seen this sign in a felafel store on Ben Yehuda St. in downtown Jerusalem. But if not, it’s pretty amusing. And I especially like the apostrophe in the word “buy’s”.  I’m still trying to figure out what it could mean.

    Falafel that “buys” people means something like:
    Our falafel is capturing the hearts of people.

    Of course it doesn’t translate well, but in Hebrew it’s a good word game.

    No, in Hebrew it doesn’t say a single thing about anyone’s heart. Yes, we all get the intent, but womp. How about “we have good falafel”.
