Let's imagine, for a moment, that the original Legend of Zelda was not developed in Japan, but Israel (or Hollywood). And that it does not tell the tale of Hyrule, but the tale of the Jewish exodus from Egypt.

The resulting game, The Exodus Of Zelda, which comes complete with unleavened croissants, worrying Jewish grandmothers and dreidels, is what Mel Brooks might have come up with in the 1980's, were he not so busy making poignant quotes about video games. Oh, and making Spaceballs.
