The Passover story is actually pretty interesting, because it involves Egyptians enslaving Jews and making them build the pyramids. That had to be pretty rough, since most Jews are lawyers, doctors and accountants, and I'm sure none of them knew the first thing about building pyramids. Also, working with stone must have been very rough on their hands, making it difficult for them to hold pencils when they did all those Egyptians' tax returns.
I've forgotten a lot of the details, but I think Moses finally makes a deal where if God will rain down all kinds of disease and death on the Egyptians and return the Jews to Canaan, he'd be willing to grant him options on Mediterranean beach front property at very reasonable terms. Then the Jews return to their homeland, where for the next few thousand years, it becomes the one reliable place where everyone knows they can drop by to beat the crap out of them, at least until Israel got the bomb and then all bets were off.
