Brainy solution?

Who needs Monty Python when you have the Israeli Ministry of Immigrant Absorption.

In a press release, the ministry reveals that there exists the fantastically named “Interministerial Committee for Preventing Brain Drain”. The goal of the committee is to persuade scientists who have left the country to bring themselves — and their brains — back to the country of their birth.

The press release gives no indication of how the eminent scientists are going to be tempted back to Israel.

We look forward to the imminent launch of the “Interministerial Committee for Promoting Funny Walks”.
