“So why does he/she always talk about his wife???”
You mean his/her spouse.
Besides, Eeees doesn’t sound feminine.April 24, 2017 10:52 am at 10:52 am #1261095
You mean she never used the word “wife” and only said “spouse”?April 24, 2017 10:53 am at 10:53 am #1261101
You’re all confused.

Someone jokes if someone is female, someone else assumes that the person is female…it’s deja vu all over again.April 24, 2017 12:07 pm at 12:07 pm #1261147
I wasn’t advocating it, Joseph, I just saw the thread title before it was deleted and remembered an old thread of The Wolfs.April 24, 2017 8:38 pm at 8:38 pm #1261679WolfishMusingsParticipant
Thank you, but I was not looking for a hug. I was looking for people’s opinions and answers to my question.
The WolfApril 24, 2017 8:52 pm at 8:52 pm #1261717
And now I’m really curious.
Wolf, I’d love to give you my opinion, but that’s kind of impossible…April 24, 2017 9:03 pm at 9:03 pm #1261733
Wolf, no one ever died from a hug.April 25, 2017 6:35 am at 6:35 am #1261848
Joseph, in 2014, Robert Christian Kemp of Orangeburg, SC gave a 14-month-old baby he was babysitting a bear hug and the child died as a result. Kemp pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter.April 25, 2017 6:35 am at 6:35 am #1261850Little FroggieParticipant

There’s a really cute story I recently read my kids about a little porcupine looking for a hug, but everyone for obvious reasons turns him down. Until he meets a crocodile who was crying because no one wanted to kiss him. So Porcy got his hug and Croc got his kiss. Wolf, you wouldn’t turn away a cute porcupine would you?April 25, 2017 3:37 pm at 3:37 pm #1262357
Did either animal survive?April 25, 2017 5:53 pm at 5:53 pm #1262453
Did you know that baby porcupines actually don’t have quills?
We had an animal on our mirpeset once that was living under a pile of leaves. We didn’t know what it was at first, but somehow we found out that it was a porcupine. We were confused because it didn’t have quills, but my brother looked it up in the encyclopedia and found out that baby porcupines don’t have quills.
We were surprised until my brother (who was about 9 or 10 at the time) pointed out that their mothers wouldn’t be able to give birth to them if they had quills.April 25, 2017 8:01 pm at 8:01 pm #1262499
No, I didn’t know that LilmodU.
I didn’t even know there were porcupines in Israel.
What are they called?April 26, 2017 1:15 am at 1:15 am #1262604
Golfer, did you know there are wild boars in Israel? I’ve seen them in the Kiryat Sefer area.April 26, 2017 11:10 am at 11:10 am #1262780MammeleParticipant
Wolf: if I’m correct about what this is, I think you should contact Rav Moshe Weinberger for clarification and chizzuk. I remember reading an article from him that slightly touched on this topic, but more more importantly he hast vast experience.April 26, 2017 12:26 pm at 12:26 pm #1262816MammeleParticipant

Yehuday, I’ve never come across one. And I hope I never do. But thanks for the info.April 26, 2017 1:55 pm at 1:55 pm #1262859WinnieThePoohParticipant
porcupine is a kipod. For some reason, they are considered cute, cuddly creatures here in Israel, and they are quite popular in gan culture. Boars, on the other hand, have not invaded children’s literature yet.
Wolf, other than hugs, can we help you?April 26, 2017 2:51 pm at 2:51 pm #1262882
The supply of things people can teach you in the CR seems to be unlimited.
And can be entertaining too!
As for the creature in question, I must be missing something.
Always looked to me like Wolf enjoyed posting his (her?) opinion on a variety of subjects, and while the comments were sometimes self-denigrating I thought it was all in fun. Or if anything, trying to elicit the opposite reaction.
Is something the matter?
I’m not in the habit of hugging entities on my computer screen whose identity and gender I have no way of verifying.
I’ll just offer Wolf and all the denizens of this place a happy and healthy new Chodesh!
There are wild boars in Tehillim. Can anyone say where?
Is the cuddly “kipod” in Tanach? Was it one of the listed shratzim? Can’t remember.April 26, 2017 7:13 pm at 7:13 pm #1263663

Ditto.April 27, 2017 5:25 am at 5:25 am #1263793
You don’t see just one wild boar. They travel in family groups, sauntering in the roads like a large, ugly, scary version of “Make Way for Ducklings.”
Speaking of which, there’s a story in the news about a group of ISIS terrorists who were killed by a stampede of wild boars. When the ISIS guys go to heaven, will they get 72 pork chops?
