Education Minister Shai Piron erupted into an uncontrollable laughing fit Tuesday night at the Knesset plenum while trying to deliver a speech explaining the penalties for the "penetration of" cell phones and other dangerous objects into prison cells.
Before he could complete his opening sentence, the education minister cracked up so hard he could not get the words out, and several MKs in the plenum joined him.
Meeting chairman Moshe Feiglin asked Piron what was so funny, and offered him a glass of water.
Habayit Hayehudi MK Shula Mualem Rafaeli documented the incident with her smart phone.
Piron attempted several more times to complete his speech, but to no avail.
He finally gave up and asked Welfare Minister Meir Cohen to finish the speech for him.
