Basket Bonanza Seller Responds

We received this response fromt the Basket Bonanza Seller:

Clearly I am not trying to say anything about locusts, plants or Egypt! (Gave me a good chuckle, though.) I am using the modern meaning of “a rich mine or pocket of ore” or, to those reading, ‘a wealth of baskets’.

Of course, the word bonanza is the English interpretation/translation from the original biblical language (Hebrew, Aramaic or Greek – depending on the expert and version consulted) which, in all likelihood, was not exactly the word ‘bonanza’. It was a play on words and not meant to be taken so seriously or literally. Hope that clarifies…
