Oops! This man’s Hebrew tattoo doesn’t mean what he thinks
On a trip to Walmart, a man named Sruli Schochet spotted the tattoo on the ex-military man’s arm
The latest victim of misunderstood tattoos is an Arkansas man whose bold arm tattoo doesn’t say what he thinks it is.
On a trip to Walmart, a man named Sruli Schochet spotted the tattoo on the ex-military man’s arm.
Schochet told BuzzFeed that when he asked the young man what the tattoo meant, he said it meant strength, a nickname he earned during his time in the military.
However, Schochet could not bear to tell the man that his tattoo actually translated into “matzo,” a type of Jewish cracker eaten during the festival of Passover.
Passover is a Jewish tradition to commemorate the hardships suffered by the Jews in Ancient Egypt.
The picture of the tattoo, as well as Schochet’s exchange, with the tattoed man were posted on to Facebook and have now gone viral.
