We've already started celebrating the incoming Year of the Ox, but what would astrological signs be like if they were assigned Jewish deli foods instead? Luckily Jewzo, a company devoted to this made-up Jewish Zodiac, came along and answered our prayers.

Year of the Pickle includes 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, and 2009.

"You’re the perfect sidekick: friends love your salty wit and snappy banter but you never overshadow them. That shows genuine seasoning from when you were a cucumber. Marry a Pastrami later in life."

No offense ox, but Year of the Lox also sounds like a party. [via Save The Deli]
