Predating the 20th-century "Jaws of Life" used in extracting victims from auto accidents, the Jews of Life originated in an Eastern European schtetl, circa 1886. In an accident involving a wagon and old Moishe Rabbinowitz's cow, Otto, the Jews of Life rushed to the scene carrying a pot of fresh chicken soup (or Hasidic Acid). Since the cow was allowed to roam freely, Otto accidents were common, and a team of two Jewish mothers was established to readily dispense the chicken soup in all emergencies. Henry Ford (aka Henry Fordman) originally called his invention a "cow mobile," after his great-uncle's famous Otto, but later changed it to the term we know today.

 

N.B. The artist, a Gentile of English-Finnish extraction, is a student of Jewish history and has a great fondness for the Chosen People. He means no disrespect in his artwork and, in fact, will find any opportunity to find humor in the traditions and customs of all peoples. Hoo-va, pie-va.
