A video of Israel’s Education Minister getting the giggles has made headlines.
Shai Piron, who is also a rabbi, burst into laughter after making a reference to “penetration” in the opening paragraph of an address he was giving in the Knesset.
“Mr. Chairman, distinguished Parliament, the aim of this legislation is to deal with a serious phenomenon – the penetration of prohibited objects into prisons,” he said during a late night session on Monday broadcast on the official Knesset TV channel.
Piron then began to laugh before recovering and attempting to continue his address. The word then popped up again and this time his laughter was accompanied by that of the entire Knesset.
