I saw a bumper sticker in Israel the other day that says “I am an apple”
Where did this ani tapuach come from?
What is it trying to accomplish?August 6, 2012 4:38 pm at 4:38 pm #890360HaLeiViParticipant
It started from a group of friends who wanted to see how far their catch phrase will spread. Of course, once you make something up you can find significance to go with it.August 6, 2012 5:48 pm at 5:48 pm #890361interjectionParticipant
Rumor has it some yeshiva bachurim were pulled over for speeding and played it out like they didn’t know hebrew. Every time the cop started talking the driver would say, ‘no understand ani tapuach’ the more frustrated the cop got, the more the driver would insist ‘ani tapuach’ until one of the wise allecks from the backseat called out, ‘kulanu tapuchim’.
Supposedly they got let off.August 6, 2012 7:18 pm at 7:18 pm #890362bygirl93Member
Interjection- it actually happened- my brother knows some of the guys…..August 7, 2012 1:09 am at 1:09 am #890363tajikpashutMember
I heard they started dancing around the car with the cops.Such ACHDUS,sniffle,sniffle.Its amazing how far rumors can go.August 7, 2012 1:10 am at 1:10 am #890364Think firstMember
I know the guy who started it and that story that “interjection” mentioned is accurate.August 7, 2012 8:59 am at 8:59 am #890365ToiParticipant
I know the guy who started it, and he told me he was high.August 8, 2012 6:17 am at 6:17 am #890366sem20Member
Totally true. I know the guys in the car and heard the story first hand!!August 8, 2012 6:24 pm at 6:24 pm #890367
Stories like this make me sick. If this is who “yeshiva bochurim” have become, and everyone else thinks it’s so funny, I really fear for my kids. Especially when these guys turn around and talk about how much frummer they are than the guys who wear colored shirts. Hashem Yishmor.August 8, 2012 7:35 pm at 7:35 pm #890368bygirl93Member
wait!!! yeshiva bochurim don’t wear colored shirts???? since when???? the definition of a yeshiva bochur is a boy who is in yeshiva. that’s it!!!! they wear white in yeshiva because thats the dress code- and they have yeshiva all the time and barely have off so why should they change for those few hours???? whose to say that once they are out of yeshiva they will still be wearing white shirts??? oh! so then they are not a YESHIVA bochur…. so this is all basic stereotyping…… before you judge- remember 2 things 1) people change.. this happened YEARS ago…. they were young and immature then… maybe they grew up!!! and 2)you are stereotyping…. even if they do wear only white shirts whose to say that the people who did this would even think or care about whether or not they are frummer then someone who is wearing a colored shirt….. YOU are doing exactly what they SUPPOSEDLY are doing… YOU are saying that they are not in fact frummer at all.. etc… and you are generalizing as much as the next guy…
sorry if this sounds mean or anything… it isn’t meant to be… assumptions, stereotyping, and generalization are my biggest pet peeves.August 8, 2012 7:37 pm at 7:37 pm #890369interjectionParticipant
“Stories like this make me sick.”
You read way too deeeply into this story.August 8, 2012 7:58 pm at 7:58 pm #890370
bygirl93 – I am pretty sure you missed my point.
I agree with you completely in your answer to what you thought I said. Assumptions, stereotyping and generalizations are also my pet peeves but how people behave should be on your list too. Whether or not these few boys grew up or not is irrelevant, some behaviors are unnacceptable even for immature people (who, btw were old enough to drive).August 8, 2012 8:05 pm at 8:05 pm #890371
interjection – You are either too used to this stuff to see why it isn’t okay, or you aren’t raising kids right now. If it doesn’t bother you, that doesn’t mean it’s okay or that I shouldn’t raise my kids to be above it.August 8, 2012 8:40 pm at 8:40 pm #890372choppyParticipant
Syag Lchochma: Do you express anger at everyone who gets a seatbelt ticket from a cop or are you only express that anger at yeshiva bochorim who get that?
Or is it you are only angry at yeshiva bochorim who try to get out of a ticket but if a cop pulled you over, you’d be okay trying to weasel out of getting a ticket?August 8, 2012 8:41 pm at 8:41 pm #890373mewhoParticipant

Syag Lchochma-since when does being able to drive transalate into more mature? kids learn to drive way before they grow upAugust 9, 2012 5:52 am at 5:52 am #890376HaLeiViParticipant
What I wrote earlier is what I thought I remembered. By now I verified with a friend or participant what Rejection and Tajik said. Eventually, they ended up dancing with the cop in the street.

And here I thought it was someone describing their body type (apple or pear shape). Apple types are at greater risk for heart disease, btw.April 19, 2017 11:11 pm at 11:11 pm #1257811zaltzvasserParticipant
