Interstellar Shlishkes

The Shlishke (shown above) is a twisted dumpling. As it happens, the shape resembles that of some alien spacecraft. Further, the Shlishke shown above resembles a pig or a fat banker. According to a poetic spider, this is how Lewis Caroll (1832 – 1898) might have featured the image in his poem A Strange Wild Song:

He thought he saw a pig
celebrating Hanukkah.
He looked again, and saw
an Abrahamic banker.
“It’s time you left” he said,
“for constellation Ancha.”*

* Ancha is a star 187 light-years from the Sun. According to the spider, that should be far enough.

There’s a better way . . .
