'Bowel-ing' in the holyland: Forget 'four to a lane'

Herb Keinon at The JPost has a stick-to-the-ribs look at local bowling (or "bowel-ing," as it tends to be pronounced here, in the language of the Prophets) ah-umm, "customs."
Watching Israelis bowl provides a fascinating insight into society. First of all, it is clear that this is a group-centered society. There is no four-people-to-a-lane rule here. Rather, bring the extended family and sit them right down. As a bowler who likes to concentrate, I've had my focus shattered by having the misfortune of ending up in a lane next to groups of six, eight and even 10 people.
Big fun - and so true.
