My favorite Kunda line is when Mayor Figalely La Gardenhose says, “And that’s a campaign promise!”October 17, 2012 3:33 pm at 3:33 pm #1210931miritchkaMember
I’m calling on behalf of yeshiva lilmod u’lilamed…lishmar v’la’asos…ulekayeim…es kol divrei…talmud torasecha…b’ahava!
Heshy? He-eshy? He-sheeee! Are you sleeping?!
And now more than ever i use this line: How many times a night can a 2 year old get thirsty?!
I also loved his tapes, and I don’t doubt that he and his family are proud of them. I just feel like we can wait until the man is buried before his death becomes a reason to tell jokes.

In this time we forgot all the lines.
It’s starting to come back now, slowly.
I think the first one is “Light is compared to the Torah” – 613 Torah Avenue – Breishis. (is that his first?)

Thanks for unlocking this thread.
Why limit it to our favorite lines from his tapes? Why not have a favorite line from every category?
Here are mine:
Favorite line from a story tape (because I can relate to it so well):
I got a great report card from Rabbi Lomnitz,
I got a great report card from Mrs. Kurtz,
Favorite line from a Shabbos Afternoon (August 26th 1989) story at the steps of the Camp Naarim dining room:

When the boy traveled with hes zeidy to Israel, on the plane the boy tried pulling the seat belt and hears an old man from behind him:
” hey boy, thoj are my shoshpenders”
and the famous line of the shabbos tape “take a bath or a shower but don’t take an hour…on erev shabbos…”

Person 2: “He’s as honest as the grass is green.”
Person 3: “Uh… He’s as honest as my hat is purple.”
Person 2: “Your hat is brown!”
Person 3: “Uh… if my hat were purple, that’s as honest he’d be.”
From Papa and the Prince (I think)
Here’s another (from Royal Rescue):
“Don’t you know you cannot order him?”
“And why not?”
“Because, eh, he’s out of order!”
And how about
“Don’t stop like a toad

I gained a new appreciation for the tapes when my kids started listening to them. My father’s favorite part was the Shabbos guest (I forget his name) from “Baruch Learns about Shabbos” who spends 5 minutes listing out his entire family including “Rrrosy mit der runny nosey”.
I laughed a lot at the theme song (Lower East Side Anthem) from the first “When Zaidy was Young”. “We would handel on the price/Then return the merchandise/in that crowded little corner of New York!”October 19, 2015 3:15 am at 3:15 am #1210963🍫Syag LchochmaParticipant
I really liked those baruch tapes. My favorite is probably the shabbos zemiros song that includes the tunes from different zemiros.November 29, 2015 1:01 am at 1:01 am #1210965itzypitchyMember
Anyone know which album this song was on? It went something like “In the days of the rishonim, … of the acharonim, in the days – in the days of the rishonim, … of the acharonim”. I’d love to get my hands on that album. If anybody can let me know the name of the album, I’d really appreciate it. Thanks.November 29, 2015 1:05 am at 1:05 am #1210966YW Moderator-💯Moderator
