Jewish teen NOT captured by Arabs

Last year before shabbos parshas Vayeishev, a lot of us got texts to say tehillim for a Yosef Ben Rochel, who had been kidnapped and traded to Arabs. Israeli intelligence believed his whereabouts to be in Egypt.
It was only late into the Friday night Seuda that one of us realized it was a joke. Yosef Ben Rochel was from the parsha.

We didn't find the humor in good taste.

So in case you get any similar text, think about what is happening in the parsha, and if it sounds similar.
