Once upon a time there were three latkes, a red latke, a yellow latke and a gold latke. On the first night of Hanukkah they began talking excitedly.

When three Hanukkah latkes fight over which of them tastes the best, the winner is decided by the family cat. Which will he choose? The excited latkes can’t wait to find out, but perhaps they should be careful what they wish for!
