<b>EXAMPLE SENTENCES FROM THE WEB FOR LATKE</b>
Perhaps the most Jewish part of the 6th Annual Latke Festival was that the food went way faster than the liquor.
<b><i>I ATE POTATO PANCAKES TIL I PLOTZED|EMILY SHIRE|DECEMBER 17, 2014|DAILY BEAST</i></b>

Yet, there was something quite fitting about how un-Jewish the Latke Festival was.
<i><b>I ATE POTATO PANCAKES TIL I PLOTZED|EMILY SHIRE|DECEMBER 17, 2014|DAILY BEAST</b></i>

She came to the Latke Festival because she loved any dish so based around the potato.
<b><i>I ATE POTATO PANCAKES TIL I PLOTZED|EMILY SHIRE|DECEMBER 17, 2014|DAILY BEAST</i></b>

Veselka layered its latke with pork goulash, and Toloache added beef short rib chorizo.
<i><b>I ATE POTATO PANCAKES TIL I PLOTZED|EMILY SHIRE|DECEMBER 17, 2014|DAILY BEAST</b></i>

Now <b>YOU</b> come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.
